Essential Gretsch sound, style and playability.
No nonsense, Electromatic hollowbody 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 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. It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud. Case sold separately.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5422T Electromatic Double Cutaway Hollowbody Electric Guitar:
Great guitar, great tone, great workmanship. Love the black top filtertron pickups. I initially got a G6620 Nashville center block and returned it because of the tone, the pickup sound and the poor quality case for a $2500+ guitar. The only thing the high price guitar had over this one was the ebony fretboard, not worth an extra two grand. On the other hand the fit and finish on this 5422 guitar is as good as it gets and the blacktop Filtertron pickups are IMO still better than all the attempts at "improvement". I put a Compton bridge on this guitar and it has the best tone of all my hollow and semi hollow body electrics. You won't be disappointed.
