In pictures: Gretsch at NAMM 2020, featuring new Electromatics, Jet Baritone and more
Sparkling, retro-vibed goodness from Gretsch.
NAMM 2020: Day Zero of NAMM – when booths are still frantically being set up, halls are uncrowded, and brands begin inviting the media to preview their latest gear. Gretsch was among them, and we were lucky enough to be able to check out its new, vibey guitars.
Here are the photo highlights from the Gretsch booth at NAMM 2020:
The Electromatic Jet Baritone is one of Gretsch’s bigger releases for 2020. The G5260T and G5260 baritone Jets – the former is equipped with a Bigsby – are powered by Gretsch mini humbucking pickups, which are voiced to retain clarity at the lower tunings.
They’re available in a range of finishes. For the G5260, pick either Dark Cherry Metallic and Jade Grey Metallic with a silver pickguard, or in London Grey with a black pickguard. The G5260T, on the other hand, is available in classic Black with a silver pickguard or in Airline Silver with a black pickguard.
A first look of the all-new G5222 Double Jet, double-cutaway guitar with a chambered mahogany body and maple top. Two Black Top Broad’Tron pickups, a laurel fretboard and set neck construction are its other highlights.
Another Double Jet, this time in a handsome Walnut Stain finish.
The G5410T Rat Rods with striking red pickups. This is another new model for 2020: it’s a fully hollow thinline that packs a pair of Filter’Trons.
Our pick of these Players Edition Penguins? The one in Two-Tone Smoke Grey/Violet Metallic.
Gorgeous new G2622T Streamliners, wallet-friendly semihollow guitars with Broad’Tron pickups – they’re just $550 each.
More Streamliners, this time of the G2420T variety – and they’re in a sparkling mood.
At only $450, these G2655s are the most affordable full-sized Streamliners of the lot.
