Gretsch G5422T Electromatic Hollow Body, Bigsby, Orange Stain
Gretsch G5422T Electromatic Hollow Body with Bigsby Overview by GAK:
No nonsense, Electromatic hollow-body guitars are the perfect real, pure and powerful Gretsch instruments. They’re the next-step Gretsch—bold, dynamic and articulate, and crafted with essential Gretsch sound, style and playability. 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.
When the Gretsch R&D team recently unearthed a Baldwin-era Filter'Tron pickup with knockout punch and phenomenal twang, they incorporated its DNA into dynamic new "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups, which now endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5422T with an electrifying new voice and identity. The G5422T Electromatic Hollow Body is a sharp new Gretsch guitar with a bound double-cutaway hollow body featuring sound-post bracing and elegant bound f holes. Other features include a maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium frets and Pearloid Neo-classic 'Thumbnail' Markers, silver plexi pickguard with Gretsch Electromatic Logo, three-position pickup switch, classic "G" arrow control knobs, rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and Bigsby-licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece, vintage-style open-back tuners and chromeplated hardware.
Beautiful to look at, listen to and play. Still early days but I think it's love.
Beautiful guitar, came out of the box with an amazingly low action. Sounds brilliant. I love it.
Great guitar and amazing sound! They don't come with a hard case though. Gretsch does not give good information to find the right one either. I wish there was a deal where you could get both guitar and case.
Oh yeah I am IN LOVE. She does gnarly gruelling beautiful noises or twangy noises. She's everything I've ever wanted and more. I'm only just unlocking her secrets.
