This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
Sound: The sound is absolutely spot on. The chime we all have come to love is there in spades. I play classic rock, a bit of classic hard rock and what my beloved wife calls Celtic Rock. The Gretsch fits in every sense of the word and adds a sonic dimension taking what and how I play to the next level. The guitar is absolutely gorgeous, pictures do not do it justice, but suffice it to say, it sounds far better than it looks. Feature: With an electric 12-string, EQ (tone and volume control) responsiveness is tantamount. The Gretsch controls are almost hyper sensitive, which for me is a real advantage. So, that is what I would say is most useful. The components fit the guitar perfectly. Someone, such as myself, being a tad biased where such is concerned, believes if it's not broken, why fix it. Go with what has worked reliably and Gretsch has done exactly that. Ease of Use: Well... it's as easy as strumming a chord or picking a note. Granted, when you play through a Marshall full stack, it's not hard at all. Even unplugged, the Gretsch is a sonic powerhouse. Quality: Given the fact, it is a higher end instrument, um... YEAH, it is well made, the fit and finish is immaculate, attention to detail, even the most minute detail is down right flawless. Gretsch has been building uncompromisingly high quality instruments for decades, and the G5422G12 is the epitome of this. Value: This guitar is worth every penny... and more. I am quite surprised it isn't selling for more, given the quality of the guitar. Manufacturer Support: As of yet, no, I've not had need to reach Gretsch's support team, other than to ask some technical questions, before I purchased the G5422G-12. But they answered my querie the same day as I posed it. The Wow Factor: This is a guitar that will turn heads, not only because of its looks, but because of its sound. It looks expensive, and to some, little under a grand in price might be expensive. Its elegant rich and classy appearance makes it stand out. On stage, it will draw the attention of the audience, both guitarists and non-players. And the minute it rings out, the audience will be riveted, by the classic gorgeous sound of its voice. Overall: 50 years ago, I picked up my first 12-String, an Alvarez Acoustic and it was on that I learned to play guitar. Since then, I have had an Epiphone 12-string,(which I carried with all through Vietnam), an Ovation clone,(acoustic electric), a Dean Boca electric 12-string, a Martin 12-string, (I currently own, acoustic electric), and now the Gretsch G5422G12 Electromatic. By far, this is, other than my Martin, the finest electric 12-string, I have had the priviledge to play and I've played some wonderful 12-strings. If you're a fan of 12-strings, you owe it to yourself, to acquire one of these amazing and beautiful guitars. As with any guitar, it takes time to become completely familiar, (if that's even possible), but thus far, I could not be more pleased and excited.
Style of Music: Classic Rock, Classic Hard Rock, a little Blues, and Celtic Rock

Overall: Got the black Gretsch 12-string 2 weeks ago and have probably played it for over 30 hours total by now. What a fantastic guitar! Looks great and sounds even better! Fit and finish are excellent, I can't really see any difference in terms of quality to my Country Gentleman, which cost nearly 3 times as much. When I tried out some Electromatic guitars a few years ago, they felt kind of cheap and flimsy. Not this one! A major improvement! I'm also glad that Gretsch changed the headstock shape, relocated the Electromatic logo and used a nicely aged looking binding on their newer models. Overall, this guitar looks very classy, a bit like the Black Falcon.Right out of the box is was set up well, it has good action and a very comfortable neck. The neck is fairly wide, which makes it easy to pick single notes. I used to own a Rickenbacker 12-string years ago but found the extremely narrow neck of the Ric to make it difficult to play. It didn't take me long to get used to the Gretsch at all, it feels great!Even unplugged, the Gretsch 12-string sounds excellent, rich, full and resonant. Through my Vox amp the pickups sound clear and chimey, with good differentiation between the three settings. The master volume, bridge and neck pickup volumes, and tone knob allow for good customization of the sound. All in all, it's actually a pretty versatile guitar, obviously great for strumming, but also capable of heavier, distorted chords and leads. The only downside is that this guitar does not come with a case or even a gig bag, however, it fits perfectly in the Country Gentleman case. Despite that, it's still a great value for $950 and I could not be happier with this guitar!
