What makes a Gretsch, a Gretsch? A question with endless possible answers. But let's focus on the most important – the sound. Loaded with a pair of superb Blacktop Filter'Tron pickups, the G5230T kicks out a tone of pure power and punch. And, combined with the chambered mahogany body, a wide-balanced sound resonates freely with a truly distinctive acoustic quality. Offering responsive low and mid-range frequencies, along with a sparkling high-end, these Filter'Trons know how to stand out on stage. So you can guarantee that your playing will always be heard, no matter the venue.

Experience incredible note definition and articulation, thanks to a treble-bleed circuit. Providing much more clarity when rolling back the master volume, the unique circuit ensures your high frequencies are heard. So, for every lead line or solo, your melodies will soar through the mix with any amount of gain. And, with master tone and volume knobs, you can take full control of your tone.

Gretsch know what players expect from their performance. Which is why they consistently go above and beyond to guarantee exceptional feel throughout all their guitar models. A chambered mahogany body creates a feeling of weightlessness, due to its lightweight nature. So you roam the stage with total freedom, and never be restricted in performance. And, thanks to a single-cutaway design, you can enjoy effortless access to the upper frets for those powerful solos and leads.

As for the neck, it's all about sleekness. An ultra-smooth black walnut fretboard lets your fingers glide up and down its surface, allowing for rapid riff-playing and chord transitions. What's more – a thin "U" shaped mahogany neck fits snug in the palm of your hand for a comfortable and secure grip, meaning you can take control of each note you play. More precision, no restriction.

A guitar that doesn’t hold you back. The G5230T has just about every feature a guitarist could ever need to enhance their playing experience. And this is epitomised by the inclusion of the Bigsby bridge. A staple among Gretsch models, the unmistakable Bigsby lets you give your solos that extra whammy. Not your thing? Well, you can even use it to decorate your chords with a hint of shimmer, and add some character to your playing. Gretsch have made a statement of giving the power to the player. And there’s no better example than the release of this stunning Jet model.
