When you want classic Gretsch guitar tone, you need real Gretsch humbuckers. That's why Gretsch gave their G5230T Electromatic Jet FT a pair of Blacktop Filter'Tron pickups. Unlike most humbuckers, these traditional Gretsch pickups give you a characteristically bright and open sound that's jangly in the highs with an almost single-coil bite. Their more typically humbucker-sounding bass also complements the G5230T's resonant body, adding a woody thump and bark to its lower register.
The G5230T allows you to pull off a lot of tonal tricks. Volume controls for each pickup help you create a perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control fine-tunes your sound once you've got the pickups dialed in. Finally, a 3-position toggle allows you to select pickup combinations quickly and easily. And of course, you'll get a sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually.
