Gretsch Guitars

A double-cutaway hollowbody with Filter’Tron pickups and Bigsby tremolo in special finishes.

When the Gretsch R&D team recently unearthed a Baldwin-era Filter’Tron pickup with knockout punch and phenomenal twang, they incorporated its DNA into dynamic new “Black Top” Filter’Tron pickups, which now endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5422T with an electrifying new voice and identity.

The G5422T Electromatic Hollowbody FSR Electric Guitar comes in a factory special run finish. It's a sharp Gretsch guitar with a bound double-cutaway hollow body featuring 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 Adjusto-Matic bridge and Bigsby-licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece, vintage-style open-back tuners and chrome-plated hardware.

Case sold separately.

    I have owned super chets , country club, country gents from the USA. The quality of this is unbelievable good. Made in Korea. The black top filter tron is all Gretsch. it does not sound like a dearmand or the pickups in the 5120. They have that great gretsch sound with a lot of adjustment. My action is 3/64s at the 12th fret. no sharp or uneven frets, guitars was in perfect intonation, take note Gibson. All i did was lower the action and raise the pickups adjust the neck. I could not be any happier with the guitar. Purchased from Musicians Friend. I highly recommend this model.

          This beauty is stunning with perfect fit and finish. The pic does not do it justice. It ranks high on looks. The sound can cover many types of music, even Jazz. The neck is very fast and confortable. It's very easy to play. It required no adjustment and was nearly in tune when I received it. It's a keeper.
          I highly recommend Musians Friend for online purchases. They always come thru with price, delivery, the best packing and customer satisfaction can not be beat. Musicians Friend will always be my first choice.

              Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5422T Electromatic Hollowbody FSR Electric Guitar:

              This guitar is well made and gives you that "Great Gretsch Sound" at a Great Price !!!! I have no complaints about the guitar, but I want to warn potential buyers of this guitar, that if there isn't a piece of foam between the wooden bridge base and the guitar's body and there's a little tag attached to the bridge's adjustment posts that say's something like secure adjustomatic bridge, that the wooden bridge base is actually glued to the top of the guitar so that it can't slide out of position. This feature may be a negative for some but I think it is probably beneficial to most, since most guitarist use lighter gauge strings today than the gauge strings that were used when Gretsch originally designed their guitars.

                I am truly blown away with this beauty.
                I had my doubts at the beginning with the guitar being made in Korea, but once i saw her and play her, all my concerns went out the window.
                The color, finishes, oh man.... Are fantastic.
                As for the tone, bite and sound, ... Impressive very impressive. Sound amazing even unplugged!!!
                The sound of this beauty is so versatile that you can't only play rockabilly with it, you can cover pretty much every kind of music genre, i guess in hard rock i'd draw the line.
                The guitar arrive to my hands in perfect intonation, i just had to make so little adjustments, the action is just perfect.
                I got her out to a gig the very next day a got her...no issues there, like I would have played her all my life.
                The cherry on top to my Parker, PRS, Fender and Gibson arsenal.

                  Bought an Amber Stain Gretsch 5422 that was a demo...must have had a little glitch, but I can;t find it.
                  Long ago, I had an early 60's Gretsch, and this one is easily as good...the build quality actually seems BETTER than the old one, and the neck and playability is as good...these have the second best neck of any guitar I have ever played in over 50 years.

                  Great pickups, especially when adjusted and the tuners really hold tune very well. This is a VERY FINE instrument, and if you have any problem with it being made in Korea, forget it - this is among the best guitars I own, versatile, great playing and great sounding!

                      I absolutely love this guitar! Right out of the box you will notice that the color is exquisite! It screams "Play me!" And you will want to, all of the time. It quickly became my number one go-to guitar. When played through my Fender and Ampeg tube amps it sounds so good you don't want to stop playing it, but then when you do put it down you can't wait to pick it up again. The playability is excellent and the neck is fast. As a bonus, with the double-cutaway and the neck being set further out than most Gretsch hollow bodies you can reach all of the way to the top fret. The Pickups can have that Setzer bite and growl when you attack the strings, or they can be sticky sweet and full with a moderate attack. It also does quite well played through an amp with OD or through an OD or Distortion stomp box. The tremolo however is, well, it's a Bigsby, and there is a good reason the Floyd Rose Trem was invented - because the old trems would not stay tuned when you dive them and this one is no exception. The old trems were never designed to modulate more than a few cents. If you crank on it you will constantly be tuning. So just leave the trem alone and view it as a pretty ornament and you'll be fine. I gave the guitar a 5, but if the ratings went to 10 that would have been my choice. This is probably the coolest guitar you'll ever own.
