Classic Gretsch looks and improved sound with new pickups and a sustainful center block.

The G5655T-CB Electromatic Center-Block Electric Guitar features "That Great Gretsch Sound" with the "center-block advantage." The interior solid spruce center block running the length of the guitar's 1-¾"-deep Double Jet body makes for a lively "high gain-friendly" tone and delivers greater control over the kind of feedback players want. The new dual-coil Super HiLo'Tron neck pickup is voiced to produce a clean, high-end sparkle with robust low-end, low-noise performance. Together with the "Black Top" Filter'Tron bridge pickup, it's a potent tonal combination.

Other premium features include five-ply maple body construction with a bound arched top and back, a bound maple neck and a 12.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and Neo-Classic "thumbnail" inlays. The G5655T-CB also has three-way pickup switching, single-ply black pickguard with Gretsch logo, four "G-arrow" control knobs (volume for each pickup, bridge-pickup-only tone, master volume), anchored Adjusto-matic bridge and flat-handle Bigsby-licensed B50 vibrato, Grover tuners and knurled strap retainer knobs. Case sold separately.
