Gretsch G5230T Electromatic JetTM FT Single-Cut with Bigsby Airline Silver

In its 65 year existence the Gretsch Jet has been the hallmark sound for iconic players. The all-new G5230T Electromatic JetTM FT Single-Cut with Bigsby captures that essential Jet power and fidelity at an incredible price.

Chambered Mahogany Bodies — Loud and Clear Classic Jet tone begins with a chambered mahogany body with maple top that produces full lows and mids with an exceptionally smooth and present high end. The result is a deep acoustic foundation that is robust, yet balanced.

    Excellent value

  • SteveY.


    Great guitar, it has the essence of grestch but at an affordable price. Sounds great, built like a tank.

  • Mr T Taylor


    Only had the guitar a couple of days but so far very impressed. Great price considering the wood that’s been used and the switches feel tight and the finish is great. Definitely would buy another one if something happened to the one I have. Mr Taylor
