Gretsch Pro Jet
Gretsch Pro Jet
The Gretsch Pro Jet is a solidbody electric guitar for the unconventional guitarist. If you march to your own drummer, you don't want to be seen (or heard) with the same axe everyone else plays. Enter the distinctively different Pro Jet. Gretsch started with a chambered basswood body and maple top, then loaded it with a Hilo'Tron single-coil at the neck and a Filter'Tron humbucker at the bridge. This upgraded model features updated hardware and a metallic purple finish. With comfy playability, affordability, and unique sonics and visuals in its corner, the Gretsch Pro Jet is a contender for your next guitar.

Basswood body with an arched maple top brings a new voice to the Electromatic line
Gretsch reinvented their Electromatic line by giving the Pro Jet electric guitar a wonderfully lightweight and resonant chambered basswood body. This basswood body isn't just lighter on your shoulder than traditional mahogany, it's also lighter on tone, adding crisp treble and extra bite to the Pro Jet's sound. You'll find that this quality complements the Pro Jet's maple archtop perfectly, imbuing this guitar with a character all its own. But make no mistake, the Pro Jet still gives you that great Gretsch sound!
Filter'Tron and Hilo'Tron pickups give you classic Gretsch tone
Gretsch tricked out this Pro Jet by putting a Super Hilo'Tron single-coil pickup in the neck. The Blacktop Filter'Tron humbucking pickup in the bridge gives you a characteristically bright and open sound that's jangly on your highs with an almost single-coil bite. And the Super Hilo'Tron single-coil pickup delivers an articulate and detailed sound from bright and jangly to warm and smooth. Gretsch's Pro Jet is ready to take on any style of music
The rosewood fretboard on the Pro Jet sports a 12" radius, perfect for fast fretwork. You'll love how fluidly your fingers navigate this fretboard, which features 22 medium-jumbo frets for effortless playability.
