The Gretsch G5125 Electromatic was part of a line of similar models differentiated by colour; the 5125 in black, the 5129 with a red top, the 5127 in powder blue. Based on the Gretsch Anniversary models, all shared the same hardware – a licensed Bigsby tailpiece with aluminum bridge, Kluson style tuners, and deArmond 2000 pickups that simulated the classic single coil DynaSonics.

Produced from 2003 to 2008, these models were built in Korea by both Peerless and Samick. They were immediately popular with players seeking an inexpensive introduction to the Gretsch world, and were often modified with better electronic components. They are built using Maple Laminate for the 16 inch wide body, with Maple for the neck, and Rosewood for the bound fingerboard.

This Gretsch G5125 is a great sounding guitar, and it plays well and cleanly. It’s a bit lighter than a Japanese or US made Pro-line Gretsch model, but I find the neck a bit more comfortable. In any case, it’s great for many genres.
