If you want the look of a Gretsch but the option to go full Iommi, you might dig some of the new P-90-loaded guitars the brand is now rolling out.
First, there’s the G2622T-P90 and G2622-P90. Both the G2622T-P90 and G2622-P90 feature a a laminated mahogany body with Aged White Purfling binding, a chambered spruce center block, and enlarged f-holes for increased acoustic projection. Both also feature a thin U-shaped set nato neck with Aged White binding and 22 medium jumbo frets. Then there’s the FideliSonic 90s, which take that classic P-90 sound and add a little extra bite.
So what’s the difference between the G2622T-P90 and the G2622-P90? Simple! The G2622T-P90 features a a Bigsby B70 tremolo (hence the “T” in the name) while the G2622-P90 has a V-Stoptail. The G2622T-P90 retails for $599 and the G2622-P90 for $499.
Gretsch also dropped the G2655T-P90 and G2655-P90, which are essentially smaller version of their usual hollowbody offerings. Both the G2655T-P90 and G2655-P90 feature a 14″ laminated mahogany body with Aged White Purfling binding, a thin-U set nato neck, and of course 22 medium jumbo frets and enlarged f-holes. Of course, they also both feature FideliSonic 90s.
