Gretsch Guitars


The Grestch G5227T Electromatic Double Jet BT with Bigsby has classic style and sound at an unbeatable price. The chambered mahogany body has an arched maple top, producing full lows and mids with a well-defined yet smooth high end. All told, it's a strong and balanced acoustic foundation.

Powering the Double Jet BT is a pair of Black Top Broad’Trons. Rock them clean and pristine, or crank up the gain for more growl. Individual volume and tone controls give plenty of sonic room to wrangle. A treble bleed circuit keeps the highs up even as you dial down the volume.

Your hands will easily conform to the thin U-shape profile of the mahogany neck. The laurel fretboard has pearloid neo-classic thumbnail inlays, a unique touch that pairs nicely with the aged white body binding.

Proving that no Gretsch is truly complete without a Bigbsy, the Double JT BT sports a B50 in die-cast aluminum. Use it for subtle surf-style vibrato, or rip it wild for rockabilly rave-ups. Either way, you're going to enjoy the ride.

Gretsch's Instrument Limited Lifetime Warranty FMIC warrants your Gretsch brand instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as it is owned by the original retail purchaser, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. 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. The Gretsch Dealer from whom you purchased your instrument may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your Gretsch instrument. 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. Remedies beyond normal service repair of any Gretsch instrument require both an evaluation and confirmation of the defect and a direct recommendation to FMIC from an Authorized Service Center for alternative considerations. All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Gretsch instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation, and are not covered by this warranty.
