The Gretsch Electromatic Pristine Jet electric guitar delivers the exceptional sound and style Gretsch is known for in a more affordable instrument. With its chambered mahogany body and arched maple top, the Pristine Jet produces a resonant, balanced tone. The slim U-shaped mahogany neck offers smooth, fast playing across the 22 medium-jumbo frets. Equipped with Gretsch's lively FT-5E Filter'Tron pickups and versatile controls, the Pristine Jet can produce a range of crisp, articulate tones. Adding expressive vibrato effects is easy with the Bigsby B50 vibrato tailpiece. With its elegant two-tone finish and gold hardware, the Gretsch Electromatic Pristine Jet is sure to inspire your creativity.

Chambered Mahogany Body Resonates With Sustain

The Pristine Jet's chambered mahogany body provides strong resonance for exceptional note clarity and sustain. Its arched maple top adds brightness and punch to the mahogany's warm, rounded tone. Together, they create the balanced acoustic response Gretsch guitars are revered for. The chambered construction also reduces weight, making the Pristine Jet comfortable for extended playing sessions and easier to transport to gigs.

Slim Mahogany Neck Plays Smooth and Fast

With its thin U profile and 12" radius laurel fingerboard, the mahogany neck offers comfortable, fast playing. The smooth neck feel lets you play intricate solos and riffs with ease. The medium-jumbo frets are ideal for guitarists that play with a firm touch, providing clear note articulation. The neck heel is sculpted for easy access to higher frets.

Pair of Punchy Filter'Tron Pickups

The Pristine Jet comes equipped with a pair of Gretsch's FT-5E Filter'Tron humbucking pickups. They produce a bold, punchy tone with tight lows and crisp highs. The master volume control utilizes a treble bleed circuit so you retain brightness when turning down. Individual pickup volume controls and a 3-way toggle switch offer versatile tonal options. Find your perfect sound whether you prefer sparkling cleans or smooth overdrive.

Bigsby Tailpiece Adds Expressive Vibrato

A Bigsby B50 vibrato tailpiece comes installed on the Pristine Jet, providing easy access to warbling, expressive pitch effects. From subtle shimmers to dive bomb vibrato, the Bigsby expands your tonal palette. An anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge keeps tuning stable, even with heavy use of the vibrato arm.

Eye-Catching Looks With Gold Hardware

With its two-tone finish, gold hardware and pearloid inlays, the Electromatic Pristine Jet has the style to match its impressive tone. The gold parts contrast elegantly against the guitar's metallic top and stained back and sides. The vintage-inspired headstock shape completes the stylish appearance. Plug in the Pristine Jet and let its looks inspire your playing.

This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized Service Centers for warranty service.

To receive warranty service, return the complete instrument to an Authorized Service Center, with your sales receipt as proof of purchase, during the applicable warranty period. Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge.
