Bright and spanky Black Top humbucking pickups
Gretsch uncovered a set of Baldwin-era Filter'Tron pickups with incredible punch and twang — perfect for the G5230T Nick 13 Signature. They reverse-engineered those special pickups to create the golden set of Black Top Filter'Tron humbucking pickups that you'll find loaded in this G5230T Nick 13 Signature. With their robust character and trademark cut, the Gretsch Black Top Filter'Tron humbuckers keep you ready for everything from rockabilly and country to blues and classic rock.
Versatile tone-shaping potential
The classic Gretsch electronics package offers big tonal variety, and that's what you get in the Gretsch G5230T Nick 13 Signature Electromatic Tiger Jet. Each pickup has its own volume control, allowing for custom-blended tones in the middle pickup position. You also have master tone and master volume controls to fine-tune your overall sound. And thanks to the built-in treble-bleed circuit, your tone will remain clear and detailed even when you roll back your volume control — perfect for cleaning up your tone without sinking to the back of the mix.
