No nonsense, Electromatic hollow-body guitars are the perfect real, pure and powerful Gretsch instruments. They’re your next-step Gretsch—bold, dynamic and articulate, and crafted with essential Gretsch sound, style and playability.

Sleek yet aggressive, the Gretsch G5422TG Electromatic Hollow Body Double Cutaway Electric Guitar 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. It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud.

Premium features include dual Black TopFilter'tron humbucking pickups, versatile upgraded controls including master volume treble bleed circuit, oversized bound F-holes and aged multi-ply body binding, smaller late-'50s G6120 bound headstock, Graph Tech NuBone nut, pearloid Hump Block inlays, and a Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece.

...which would be amazing! I won't get into all the technical aspects here. But, this guitar is worth more than what they're asking for it, in my honest opinion. I really was not expecting it to be as diverse a guitar as it is. Mainly purchased for playing only a few compositions, but my how that changed! From playing country to rock and everything in between, this cat has all that. I've got this plugged into a Marshall 2555X Silver Jubilee half stack reissue, and it just shines. No matter what style I'm playing in; country, rockabilly, blues, rock n roll, etc, it's a great sounding and great feeling instrument and it delivers! I had a couple questions and I reached out to Gretsch and their customer service was top notch. My first Gretsch, and I'm overall very pleased!
