This guitar is just amazing. I can't believe how great it looks and plays for the money. It's perfect down to the detail. If you are looking for a pro level guitar without dropping over a grand, this clearly stands out as one of the best options out there, if not the best option. Hands down. You won't regret it.
The guitar comes with two Blacktop Filteron humbuckers, a 3-way pickup selector, a volume knob for each pickup, a master tone knob, and a master volume. They all work great for honing in on the exact sound that you want. I typically leave both pickups at full volume and use the master tone and pickup selector for quick tweaking. The difference is pretty distinct between the neck and bridge pickup, one giving you great bluesy tone and one giving you bright chimey scratch respectively. And this guitar is a gretsch, so it has that signature Gretsch sound in there (bite, chime, warmth) but it's definetly more rocky than a hollowbody. Great for rock, pop, country, etc.Also, my particular guitar came in the sunburst finish and it looks absolutely gorgeous. It's been given many compliments in a short time.The neck is neck-through design, and I can tell. It's very solid. The intonation was spot on from the factory. I even put thicker gauge strings on, and I haven't seen a change in the action at all. Plus the neck-through combined with the chambered body gives the guitar a very full sound and a longer sustain.And I love the hump block inlays!
The Pro Jet is built very well. The tuners are solid and keep in tune without a problem. The finish was perfect on arrival. No visible flaws. The strap holdersn are anchored in the wood very securely, and I don't forsee them stripping or loosening at all. Also, as you can see in the pictures, the holders are wide, which means that it is very difficult for a strap to go on or come off. The good thing about that is that you can easily screw them on and off, so your strap is secure without strap locks, yet it's still easy to add or remove the strap.I gave quality a nine because on arrival, all the knobs (volume, tone) were loose. In fact, the volume knob actually fell off within the first 10 minutes of use. That's an easy fix though, as the knobs have an adjustment screw for tightening built in. Unfortunately, in my zest for secure knobs, I actually over-tightend the master volume and slightly bent the steel holding the knob. Once I reseated the knob though, it wasn't at all noticeable and It's now very tight and secure. A very small issue.Don't be afraid of the fact that it's made in the East. It's very high quality.
This guitar costs $600, but it looks and plays like a guitar that should literally cost twice as much. I almost feel like I'm ripping Gretsch off. I would buy this guitar again in a heartbeat. In fact, being a touring/studio musician, I'm likely going to be buying a back-up Pro Jet soon.

The pics of this guitar do not do it justice. A beautiful instrument, with the black and silver and off-white binding. Pups are a huge improvement over the mini-humbuckers. That's the good.....Now the bad: 3 out of 4 pots were crooked and loose. The pickguard was loose and did not fit correctly over the neck pickup ring. This thing had a noise problem, that was indicative of a grounding issue. Unable to fix it. I even ran my amp through a Furman noise conditioner-no luck. If you have the cash, buy the Duo-Jet....if not, you better try a few of these on before you buy.

    Sounds great for a inexpensive Gretsch! Tweeked the neck when I got it and when everything settled was perfect. Love the sound of the pickups! I've had pro Gretsches before but this one will go head to head with any of them.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5435 Electromatic Pro Jet Electric Guitar:

      I started playing in the 60s. I wanted one of these, Tennessean? Country Gentleman ? White Falcon ? Could not afford one then, let alone now. I opened the box. First, the memories of seeing the gold sparkle in the hands of greats on stage. I then played it. It was set up well, and in tune. Such fun. A keeper ! I like the slightly shorter scale neck than my teles. Toasted it with a sip of Dewars 12 year. Now I must get a case.

      Arrived in a timely manner. Right out of the box the volume knob fell off. I put it back on with an allen wrench and tightened all the others...they were all loose.

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5435 Electromatic Pro Jet Electric Guitar:

        I have been playing electric guitar at my church of about 250 people for about 3 years now. I was ready to upgrade from my first electric guitar, a Les Paul style, but didn't want to wait the 2 years or so it would have taken to save up the dough for a nicer one. So I decided on the Electromatic Pro Jet to play in the meantime.
        This guitar can really jam! I love the tone this guitar has compared to my old Les Paul. Those blacktop filtertron humbuckers give off the perfect balance between deep & rich, and bright & twangy. The only negatives I have is the intonation was a bit sharp on every string, and the guitar itself doesn't fit into my old Les Paul case.
        In summary, I am in no hurry to upgrade again.

              Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5435 Electromatic Pro Jet Electric Guitar:

              Don't be fooled when you try this guitar, it is very bright and twangy. It's a Gretsch! HOWEVER, the tone control cap was changed to a 472k (.0047Uf) which gives the Tone pot better control. Turning the tone pot down 1/4 to a 1/2 turn and picking on the neck will give you great jazz sounds (like the G5420). The master volume also acts to cut down the highs with a slight turn downwards. SO ... don't only test it full blast. I am sure you will like it the same as I do.
              I play rock (50s,- present), pop, little heavy metal, a bit of jazz, standards and flamenco on this.
              I am debating whether to play without the pick guard or modify it to be lower.
