The Electromatic® CVT III electric guitar sports three sonically stellar Gretsch Mini Dual-Coil pickups that are voiced to be hi-fi rich and hi-gain friendly. The three position pickup selector switch is configured to keep things simple (Position 1: Bridge PU, Position 2: Middle PU, Position 3: Neck PU), so you can keep your mind mentally orbiting while making split second decisions when performing. Extended jams are a breeze with this original Gretsch "CVT" thin profile mahogany body design (1.5625"/40mm) and bolt-on maple neck that joins at the 18th fret. "G" Arrow Knobs, Medium Jumbo Frets, Adjustomatic„¢ bridge and stop tailpiece are the ingredients you need to cook up atasty rock-and-roll stew with the CVT.

The G5105 is awsome

By Robert McPherson

from Plymouth Indiana

I recently purchased a Gretsch G5105 electomatc CVT-III from Guitar Center at the Mishawaka location and it has so far exceeded all of my expectations for a solid body Gretsch. The sound is powerful yet warm, the pick-ups are responsive and vibrant. Good job to Gretsch for making such a good sounding guitar and to Guitar Center for carrying the line. This is about the best guitar I have bought from the center sense I purchased my Gretsch Hollowbody several years ago. Good job Guys.
