Features: What it does for you:

Tap Into Lush 12-String Tones with this Gretsch Hollowody!

The Gretsch G5422DC-12 Electromatic hollowbody takes its cues from the fantastic G5422TDC 6-string -- but doubles down on the shimmer power with this 12-string version! It's similar in nearly every other way to the 6-string model, but omits the Bigsby tremolo. The additional strings add just 3mm of width to the neck, while the scale length remains 24.5 inches.

The G5422DC-12 comes in the same double-cutaway hollowbody design found on the 6-string model, with elegant silver hardware throughout. The distinctive body design, set neck, and custom-designed "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups all come together to create an instrument that sings with a lush, beautiful voice all its own.

Sounds, Feels and Looks Like Nothing Else

The body on this marvelous guitar is a specially balanced 5-ply maple under a gloss urethane finish. The depth on the body is a substantial 2.25 inches that feels great to hold and imparts the instrument with its legendary sustain and shimmer. A nicely accented binding adorns the body, fingerboard, and sound holes, and the silver plexi pickguard shines magnificently under the stage lights.

Great Fit and Finish for Any Player

This Electromatic's maple neck is set with 22 medium jumbo frets in a rosewood fingerboard. The neck measures 1.8125 inches at the nut and has an overall scale length of 24.5 inches. Hump-Block fingerboard inlays adorn 8 frets.

Filter'Tron Pickups Steal the Show

For starters, the G5422DC-12's "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups look way cooler than most other pickups out there. This is a fact. Additionally, they happen to be some of the coolest-sounding pickups out there!

This pickup was specially designed by the Gretsch R&D team, with a winding pattern based on a vintage Baldwin-era Filter'Tron pickup found in an older Gretsch. Seeking to capture the punchy twang of this pickup, Gretsch created the "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups that now impart this guitar with such a distinctive voice. A 3-position toggle lets you tweak the tonal balance between the pickups to your heart's content.

Achieve Perfect Voicing and Intonation

The rest of the hardware on the G5422DC-12 Electromatic is chrome-plated and absolutely top-shelf. The Adjust-o-Matic bridge rests on a rosewood base, achieving a tone that is found on no other guitar. A handsome "G" cutout tailpiece ties it all together.

Product Description

The Gretsch G5422DC-12 Electromatic Hollow Body 12-String sparkles with the lushly full and distinctively chiming sound that only comes from doubling the number of strings on a fine Gretsch guitar. Further, it features two dynamic "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups, which endow this generation of Electromatic hollow-body models with an electrifying voice and identity.

Full and balanced 12-string tone emanates from its bound double-cutaway hollow body, which features sound-post bracing and elegant bound f holes. Other features include a maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and hump-block pearloid inlays, silver plexi pickguard, three-position pickup switch, classic "G" arrow control knobs, rosewood-based 'Adjust-o-Matic' bridge and "G" Cutout Tailpiece, vintage-style open-back tuners and chrome hardware.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The easiest 12 string I have ever played"
Overall: This is the best sounding 12 string I have ever played and it plays so easy! I fell in love with this guitar in minutes. It plays so much easier than it's acoustic brothers it is unbelievable. Takes a bit of getting used to at first because the neck is a little narrower than my Guild or Martin but it sounds great. Looking for that Roy Orbison sound but in a 12 string and this guitar has it. I was a bit aprehensive at first because of Gretsch having been absorbed by Fender and the plant is overseas but the guitar is worth every dime of the MSRP and the cost is far lower. I am looking forward to playing this guitar for a long long time.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Surprising - even by Gretsch standards"
Overall: I purchased the Black Beauty of the two Gretsch G5422DC 12s available through zZounds. I knew it would be good, probably very good. But I am even more impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship, the wood, the tooling, and especially and particularly the sounds of this extraordinary guitar. I only regret I waited so long to buy it. I couldn't possibly be happier with this beautiful instrument. It lives up to its honoured lineage - uniquely Gretsch.
Style of Music: Rock n Roll, Folk Rock, Celtic Rock, Jazz and Blues, and a whisper of Country
