Gretsch has announced new features and finishes for some of its Electromatic Collection Hollow Body models.
The new Electromatics are available as single and double-cut hollow body guitars, and include left-handed and 12-string options. All are outfitted with dual Black Top Filter’Tron humbucking pickups, and also include a master volume treble-bleed circuit, Graph Tech NuBone nut, four-ply body binding and a smaller, late-Fifties bound headstock.
