Ever since Gretsch produced their first instrument more than a hundred years ago, they've been a force to be reckoned with in the music community. A leading manufacturer of guitars and drums, Gretsch is a family-run company that prides itself on quality, craftsmanship and design. Gretsch Electromatic guitars are known for their big sounds, unique voices and affordable price tags. While they are Gretsch instruments through and through, the Electromatic series offers musicians of every skill level and style a chance to feel and hear the greatness that can only be experienced with a Gretsch guitar.
Let's start by taking a look at a Gretsch guitar that is guaranteed to take you on a wild musical ride. The G5135 Electromatic CVT Electric Guitar was made for Gretsch fans who demanded a contemporary version of the original 1960s model. If you're a shredder who lives for pickups that howl, tones that bite and a sound that kills on the stage, you're going to want to get your hands on this ultra-slim, solid-bodied six-string.
Now, if you're a lefty who's looking for a sound that's similar to an influential '90s punk rocker, check out the G5191 Tim Armstrong Electromatic Hollowbody Left-Handed Electric Guitar. A tribute to Rancid guitarist Tim Armstrong, the G5191 is large, in charge and packed with impressive features like "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups and a rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic Bridge. As for all you right-handers, there's no need to fret - this axe also comes in a standard model, so you can tear through your favorite Rancid tracks just like your south-pawed friends.
While these are just two examples of Gretsch Electromatic guitars, your choices certainly don't end here. There are many more to explore, so feel free to give each one a closer look. Whatever you choose, the results will be sure to please you - after all, we're talking about a leading instrument manufacturer that's been trusted worldwide since 1883.
