Gretsch G5135 CVT Electromatic Electric Guitar - Cherry Stain
This elegant retro-styled Gretsch guitar is part of the Electromatic range, the double cut away solid Mahogany body is complemented by a Mahogany set neck utilising a 22 fret Rosewood fret board.
Fret orientation comes courtesy of Pearloid inlaid dot position markers on the chunky but comfortable c-shaped type set-neck. The two Megatron hum-bucking pick-ups at the neck and bridge position are managed by 2 volume and one master tone control and a 3 way front mounted pick-up selector switch. Each pick up has 2 rows of adjustable magnet poles which are stamped with the 'US patent' insignia.
The bridge is an anchored Adjusto-matic model balanced with a Bigsby Licensed B50 Vibrato Tailpiece. All hardware is chrome plated and includes the tone and volume G-arrow knobs, bridge and tremolo unit and the vintage style machine heads along with the pick-up casings and strap buttons.
The elongated pyramid-topped headstock is adorned with both the Gretsch and Electromatic logos and is joined by a leaf-shaped plastic truss rod cover. The knurled strap retainer knobs are detachable and will unscrew in an anti-clockwise direction, the guitar body has bevelled comfort-fit contours and the retro look is completed by the 60?s style black plastic scratch plate which blends perfectly with the wine red colour gloss urethane finish.
