What we say:

At A Glance:

This stunning G5222 Electromatic Double Jet by Gretsch screams retro cool! From the V-Stoptail and Neo-Classic inlays to the chambered mahogany body and gorgeous maple top, it's a guitar that has those edgy vintage tones and looks down in spades. In fact, it's the style of Gretsch that was famously rocked by Malcolm Young from AC/DC and that alone should be enough of a reason to own one!

Features We Love:

Chambered Mahogany Body

This guitar features a chambered mahogany body with an arched maple top. By carving out "chambers" in the mahogany part of the body, not only is resonance enhanced, but the weight of the body is significantly reduced, which increases comfort. The chambered sections are then hidden under the maple top, giving the look of a regular solid body guitar. The result is a guitar with great sustain, a rich low-end character and a bright chime that cuts through the mix.

Gretsch Broad'Tron Pickups

The Broad'Tron pickup has been designed to reduce hum and offer a powerful wide sound with smooth high end and gritty mids. Whether it's on cleans or overdriven tones, your guitar is always going to sound great!

Thin U Neck Profile

The use of a slender "U" shaped neck makes this guitar extremely comfortable to play. Even for smaller sized hands, complex chording is easily executed and hand fatigue is reduced.

Pros:

  • Excellent tones and sustain
  • Great vintage looks

This is a lot of guitar for the price, simply a pleasure to play and looks stunning. Plays as well as a Gibson Standard or high end PRS.

Very pleased with guitar. Looks really good. The Walnut stain finish is much more glossy (good thing for me) than appears in photographs on website. Also the colour is more like a dark or deep wine, really nice.
