Style Meets Function With This Sweet Gretsch Hollowbody

If you're looking to own a throwback to the sonic richness of early rock 'n' roll or classic country, then you're looking for a hollowbody guitar. Gretsch honors the tradition of these elegant instruments with the G5422TDCG Electromatic hollowbody electric guitar. This beautifully crafted guitar combines the finest acoustics with cutting-edge, reverse-engineered vintage-style pickups, resulting in a striking instrument that sounds just as good as it looks.

Timeless Vintage Looks

This Electromatic captivates audiences at first glance thanks to its gorgeous finish and gold-plated hardware. But it's not all just looks -- that 5-ply maple bound double cutaway hollow body with f-holes isn't just for show -- it provides a resonating chamber which sculpts notes into rich, harmonious overtones. Even the Adjusto-Matic bridge and Bigsby vibrato tailpiece exhibit the perfect marriage of style and function.

Baldwin-era Filter'Tron Pickups, Recreated

It happens all the time in engineering: someone finds a gadget that's been lost in some warehouse for decades that outperforms the best of present-day technology. That's exactly what happened to the folks over at Gretsch when the unearthed a set of Baldwin-era Filter'Tron pickups. The vintage pickups were brighter and twangier than anything available on the market, so they reverse-engineered them -- and that vintage tone has been recreated in the Black Top Filter'Tron pickups. Expect a punch like you've never heard before. The unique combination of two volume knobs, a master volume knob, and one tone control extends your tonal possibilities even further.

Product Description

The Gretsch G5422TDCG Electromatic Hollow Body is a sharp guitar with a bound double-cutaway hollow body featuring sound-post bracing and elegant bound f holes.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazin instrument at any price "
Overall: I've been playing for almost 40 years 35 of them professionally. I own about 14 high end guitars. I have never picked up a guitar and had it feel and sound like I've been playing it since I started playing so many years ago. It came perfectly setup. It is perfectly balanced and is not heavy. It looks stunning but most of all the FilterTron pickups get every note and nuance of your playing. These are the best pick ups I've ever heard. The controls on the instrument are very sensitive and you can really adjust the sound to get almost anything you're looking for. The Bigsby does exactly what you want it to do and the guitar stays in tune no matter how you play it. I was stunned how hard I was able to play it, use the Bigsby and have it hold the tune. It sounds great with some over drive or fully distorted but in the end I come back to those pick ups. They just catch everything. This has become my "A" guitar over night although the Taylor T5 is right up there too but a TOTTALY different animal. I absolutely love it. The price was VERY reasonable and because of the 5 ply laminate it is incredibly sturdy. If you're in need of a hollow body this one is all you'll ever need. I've never given an instrument a perfect rating but this one is perfect. Exactly what I needed and so much more than I thought it could be for the price. This could be a $2100 instrument and it isn't. Get it.
Style of Music: Rock, Folk , Jam, Jazz Hybrids. Alternate tunings and capo work. I use multiple guitars in different tunings to keep the sound i
