The Gretsch Electromatic G5220 Jet BT Single-Cut with "V" Stoptail electric guitar is the perfect way to get your hands on a real Gretsch for a great price. The G5220 Jet offers you the full, warm sound of a chambered mahogany body with a maple top. A pair of Broad'Tron pickups lets you tap into the definitive tone of Gretsch's classic humbucker sound. And a mahogany neck with black walnut fingerboard also brings you that classic Gretsch feel and playability. Finally, a classic "V" Stoptail bridge provides a vintage look as well as great support for staying in tune. Gretsch guitar lovers here at GearNuts are big fans of the value-packed Gretsch G5220 Electromatic Jet BT.

- build quality
- black finish is nice
- bound neck & body
- eliminated the "electromatic" logo down the headstock front
- mahogany body, not basswood used in so many electromatics
- cheap tuners. Should be replaced.
- pickups are so-so, but that is a matter of personal taste. Subjective... I wish they had put the blacktop filtertrons in this hardtail model - I like those better.
- linear taper pots leave little contol on any pots. Might want to replace.
This is a nice little guitar, but could use some upgrades. I recommend the following:
- Changing tuners to a grover mini locking rotomatic 406C as a drop in replacement is relatively inexpensive, speeds string changes, and offers better tuning stability. The stock tuners are not impressive. They don't stay in tune very well.
- If you play with tone and volume controls wide open all the time, then the controls don't matter much, but if you like to use them to control gain, grit and overall tone, then you may want to replace the pots with audio taper pots of a higher quality. The ones sold in the guitar offer little adjustability. I've found this to be the case on every Gretsch I've owned, including Japanese made $3000 ones. They use linear taper pots and on the electromatics, lower quality pots. I basically expect to gut this guitar, but I bought mine on a good discount, so I still won't have that much money in it by the time I upgrade the pickups, pots, caps, switches, jack and tuners. It's still a decent platform for a project guitar.
- I personally bought this as a platform to put TV Jones magnatrons in, so I'm doing that as I'm not a fan of the broadtron pickups that come in this guitar. I do actually like the blacktop filtertrons found in the G5230T, and I have one of those as well. Changing to a filterton sized pickup also requires changing the pickup rings.
