The Gretsch Guitars G5655TG Electromatic Center Block Jr. Bigsby Electric Guitar in azure metallic is designed for high-volume performance. Painstakingly crafted by Gretsch with essential sound, style, and playability, this model delivers electrifying authenticity. Featuring a chambered spruce center block for dynamic resonance and lightweight comfort, the G5655TG produces a pure Gretsch tone.

Dual Black Top Broad'TronTM Pickups Provide Articulate Tone

The G5655TG's dual Black Top Broad'Tron humbucking pickups deliver bold, dynamic, and articulate tone with enhanced sonic punch. With a 3-position toggle switch, you can choose between the bridge pickup, bridge and neck pickups together, or the neck pickup alone for a range of tones from bright and cutting to warm and rounded.

Playability and Style in One Package

Offering excellent playability, the G5655TG has a 12" radius laurel fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and NeoClassic thumbnail inlays. This guitar boasts stage-stealing style with a stunning Azure Metallic finish and gleaming gold hardware, including the Bigsby B70 vibrato tailpiece, anchored Adjusto-MaticTM bridge, and G-arrow knobs.

Familiar Feel, Iconic Sound

With a thinner U-shaped neck profile, the G5655TG has a familiar feel for players accustomed to solid-body electrics. However, its hollowbody design and chambered spruce center block produce the iconic resonant Gretsch tone. Combining the best of both worlds, this model is ideal for players seeking a bold, dynamic sound in a comfortable, lightweight form.

Premium Appointments and Versatile Tonal Options

Premium appointments like the gold plexi pickguard, die-cast tuners, and gold hardware provide visual flair and durability. Master volume and tone controls enable you to fine-tune your tone, while the included gig bag protects your investment. The Gretsch Guitars G5655TG offers versatile tonal options, iconic style, and high-performance functionality.

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.
