Gearank Recommendation

The Gretsch G5445T appeared on our recommended list for Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500 from March 2019 until June 2020.

Overview

Double Jet is Gretsch speak for double cutaway, so the G5445T is essentially a double cutaway version of their popular solidbody guitar design.

And like its single jet sibling, Gretsch manages to make this design distinct, with some subtle but well placed changes to conventional double cutaway guitars.

As the title suggests, this model comes equipped with a Bigsby tremolo bridge, which adds to its overall visual flair and allows for more note expression. Finally, it comes equipped with “Blacktop” Filter’Tron Pickups that give it a distinctly Gretsch sound.

With its stylish double cutaway profile and Bigsby tremolo, its hard to not like the Gretsch G5445T.
