Gretsch G5422T Electromatic Hollow Body Double Cutaway Amber
Manufacturer's ID: 2504912520
What we say:
Gretsch’s Electromatic range bring you all of the style, sound, feel and vibe of top tier Gretsch guitars but at a more affordable price. Gretsch Electromatics are perfect for gigging guitarists who want to make a statement onstage and enjoy the unique Gretsch sensibility.
This G5422T is a full size, double cutaway Gretsch with all of the expected beauty attached to this most handsome of brands. This has the Bigsby tremolo, the wealth of binding on the body, f-holes & neck, logo’d control knobs, the ‘Neo-Classic’ thumb inlays and of course the overall size and design of the body which lends luxury and confidence to the instrument. It’s a looker! This model is available here in Amber.
Aside from these cool visuals, you get a 12” radius fingerboard with Medium Jumbo frets for an easy playing experience. The neck is Gretsch’s standard U profile and 24.6” scale length.
Two Blacktop FIlter’Tron humbuckers supply the quintessential twang: these pickups may be humbuckers but they are specifically different sounding from regular humbucking pickups. You can get gnarly and raucous with these guys without any problem but you also enjoy the benefit of excellent clean tones to boot. The Bigsby offers all the retro shimmer and wobble that you’d hope to have on such an instrument.
Gretsch’s Electromatic guitars have been an excellent buy for a long time and this double cutaway model offers a charismatic choice .
Sleek yet aggressive, the G5422T has a thinner, fully hollow build with a true Filter’Tron™ voice that captures the resonant hollow-body sound with a more present and chiming voice. Like all Electromatic guitars, it delivers the fearless and electrifying authenticity that has set Gretsch apart as the quintessential rock ‘n’ roll guitars from the very beginning. It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud. Premium features include:
- Dual Black Top Filter'Tron humbucking pickups
