The Gretsch G5655T-QM Electromatic Center Block Jr. Single-Cut Quilted Maple with Bigsby. This smaller-sized single-cutaway electric guitar features a stunning quilted maple top, back and sides and a chambered spruce center block for enhanced resonance and lightweight comfort. Brought to you by the iconic Gretsch brand, the G5655T-QM blends essential Gretsch sound, style and playability with cutting-edge innovation.

Chambered Spruce Center Block Resonates

At the core of the G5655T-QM's full yet articulate tone is its chambered spruce center block. Strategically chambered to reduce weight while maintaining rigidity, the spruce center block enhances resonance for a natural acoustic-like tone when playing unplugged. When plugged in, it provides a solid foundation for the pickups to produce a clear and punchy sound.

Dual Broad'Tron Humbuckers Deliver Bold Tone

The G5655T-QM is equipped with a pair of Broad'Tron humbucking pickups that provide a bold and powerful tone. The bridge pickup delivers a punchy sound with tight lows and crisp highs, while the neck pickup produces a warm, rounded tone perfect for chords and solos. With a three-way pickup selector switch, you can choose the bridge pickup, neck pickup or a combination of both pickups.

Vintage-Style Appointments and Premium Parts

From its gold pickguard to the nickel tuners bridge and tailpiece, the G5655T-QM is decked out in premium parts that reflect Gretsch's vintage style. It features a 12"-radius laurel fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays, as well as a Graph Tech NuBone nut for improved tuning stability. A Bigsby B70 vibrato tailpiece allows subtle pitch-shifting effects.

A Smaller Gretsch Ready to Electrify

The G5655T-QM has a slightly smaller, 14" single-cutaway body that provides enhanced comfort for players with smaller frames or those who prefer a more compact instrument. Weighing under 7 pounds, this smaller-bodied Gretsch is designed to electrify on stage or in the studio. Available in hudson sky, mariana, speyside and sweet tea finishes, the G5655T-QM lets you choose a color to match your style.

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.

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.
