Does the G5220 come with either a case or gigbag?
I dont think any of the non pro models come with a case or gigbag
Nope. You hAve to buy it. Some shops may offer you a discount on it if purchased with guitar. Or some shops may offer case included.
Is there a Jet gigbag made by Gretsch? If so, is it any good?
Think the Gretsch case number 6238
I've had luck finding b-stock of 6238xl case for under 100, with the only issue being damage to the shipping box, haha.
Both the 5220 and 5222 fit fine
OH ! ...HERE WE GO ! .... lol
Where? Am I dressed appropriately? Do I need to bring a toothbrush?
Behave so I don’t have to report you to......Yourself
Inside joke. Thunder is the main proponent that guitars should come with factory cases included---and jack plates.
My recommendation is that they come with proper strap locks.
Most everyone thinks they should come with better bridges.
"Except SGs cuz that would just be silly!"
It would add some sparkle, tho.
I'm down with a better ''vintage'' bridge, or an included box filled with multiple ''vintage'' bridges, would be even better.
Along with that ''Great Gretsch Sound. To me that ''Great Gretsch look'' is every bit as important. I've replaced every modern Gretsch bridge, on every Gretsch I own.
Photo shows just a few readily accessible Gretsch cast-offs, that were removed immediately, wrapped up, and put away.
Personally, I like the Rocking Bar bridge, and the Space Control bridge, ''simplicity at its finest'', and for those that would argue, there are better bridges for obtaining and maintaining intonation, seems to me, all the world famous guitar Greats didn't seem to have a problem with the simple bridges or intonation.
Maybe we've grown to fussy.
Bar bridges are the beauty of simplicity. Only one piece, no rattling bits to fuss with. That's why Compton and Tru-Arc bridges (and dbridge in England) are so popular---they work well, and there are no issues with them. Both come in a variety of designs and materials to suit any player.
No. For my G5220, I got the Gretsch G2164 gig bag.
This is Gretsch's specification for case/bag:
Optional G6238FT Gretsch® Flat Top Solid Body Hardshell (p/n 099-6474-000); Optional G2164 Gretsch® Solid Body Gig Bag (p/n 099-6460-000)
There is a Gretsch gig bag for Jet models... G2164 is the model number. I just ordered two of them--one for my G2629, and one for my G5220 (which I had stored in a G6238FT hardshell case up until now, when I moved my newly acquired G5230T to that case).
Can't speak for quality yet, but I can share thoughts later this week after they arrive.
I don't gig anymore, so I only needed a gig bag as a glorified dust cover, and to hopefully help a bit with fluctuations in temperature/humidity. If I was gigging, I'd invest in the hardshell case. But I'm hoping the gig bag is sufficient for use at home.
I got a surprise Gretsch gig bag with my G5235T.
Gave it away, bought a hardshell case instead.
...... well said BIB , well said
I love your quote.
When my Grand Daughter Ellie started talking, her and I used to do funny voice impersonations. When she was a little over two, she said to me, ''we're crazy aren't we Grandpa'', I replied, ''I think so'', she said, ''that's OK, I like it''
Still crazy after all these years. Is there any other way.
Guess I was lucky as mine did come with a Gretsch hard case. I didn't expect it, when the salesman came out from a backroom with case in hand and said "look what I found". It's my understanding that the 5220 does not come with a case or gig bag.
