What we say:

This electromatic range Gretsch is dripping with vintage style and modern player-friendly features.

There aren’t many guitar brands as charismatic as Gretsch and this model, the G5622T doesn’t drop the ball! Unlike lots of other Gretsch semis, this model has a chambered centre block made of Spruce in the middle of its hollow arched body. This helps deal with unwanted feedback and thickens the sound in a very agreeable way!

The body itself is smaller than regular Gretsch semis: this is in keeping with a popular trend across the industry of offering downsized versions of classic models. This helps with portability and is also more manageable for slightly smaller players. The arched front and back are fashioned from laminated Maple in the time-honoured fashion.

Plenty of great Gretsch features abound: Neo-Classical Thumbnail inlays, a logo’d pickguard, binding aplenty (including around the f-holes which is an excellent detail) and the classic body shape & control knob layout that distinguishes a Gretsch from another semi-acoustic guitars.

This G5655TG has two Black Top Broad’Tron pickups for a hotter, more rock-orientated sound than you’d maybe imagine. These pickups sound excellent, handling plenty of sizzle and retaining lots of bite and character.

A genuine licensed Bigsby tremolo unit is fitted and married to an anchored bridge for reliable pitch manipulation and even cooler looks!

For Gretsch lovers who play at high volumes but need something just a little smaller, this G5655TG, available here in Azure Metallic, is the model to go for!

Struggling to find a fault! Finish is perfect, got to be one of the coolest looking guitars around, great sound, fantastic playability. Being a semi the sound is more mellow than my totally solid DuoJet - fantastic sustain - you could play Larry Carlton's Room 335 on it and you wouldn't know it's not a Gibson.
