Gretsch is proud to offer the G5237 Electromatic Double Jet FT, a chambered double-cutaway guitar that roars with authentic Gretsch tone and style. Its chambered mahogany body resonates with full, balanced tone across the tonal spectrum, providing a strong foundation for the included Black Top Filter'Tron pickups. These high-output pickups pump out the quintessential punch and clarity Gretsch is known for, allowing this Double Jet to cut through at any volume.

Chambered Mahogany Body Produces Loud, Clear Tone

The G5237 Electromatic Double Jet FT's chambered mahogany body enhances resonance for robust lows, rich mids and smooth highs. Its arched maple top further focuses the tone, resulting in a balanced acoustic voice that provides an ideal platform for the included pickups.

Black Top Filter'Tron Pickups Deliver Quintessential Gretsch Power

The G5237 Electromatic Double Jet FT's Black Top Filter'Tron pickups take full advantage of the chambered mahogany body to produce wide, transparent tone with all the punch and clarity Gretsch is known for. These high-output pickups allow this Double Jet to cut through whether playing clean, crunchy or fully cranked.

Individual Volume Controls Provide Total Tonal Control

The G5237 Electromatic Double Jet FT provides a level of tonal control rarely seen in guitars at this price point. Individual volume controls for each pickup allow you to blend the pickups to your taste, while a master tone control lets you dial in just the right amount of treble. A treble bleed circuit ensures your tone stays bright even when rolling back the master volume.

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.
