Here for sale is super cool G5265 Baritone electric guitar from the Gretsch Electromatic series. This is really unique guitar with a sound of it's own. It's a long scale "baritone" set up to be tuned B to B from the factory. Previously the G5265 was set up E to E (like a Fender bass VI ) but is currently being setup from the factory like a standard baritone guitar. It's a welcome change for baritone players! This is a great instrument that's got great big bass response and sounds terrific through a bass or guitar amp. It's an unusual guitar to be sure, but there are many ways the G5265 will fit into your sound and style! This guitar and comes with all documentation and the Gretsch deluxe padded gigbag. If you have any questions at all please feel free to give us a call!

***We are including a very nice heavy duty padded Gretsch Gigbag with this instrument. It's a great gigbag that fits the G5265 perfectly. If you'd like a hard case for this one you'll find very few options. There is a Pro series Gretsch case that fits it perfectly that we can offer with the intrument for an additional charge. Please contact us for details.
