OVERVIEW

A snow-white, double-cutaway hollowbody with Filter'Tron™ pickups and Bigsby tremolo.

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 "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups, which now endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5422TDCG with an electrifying voice and identity.

The G5422TDCG Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar is a sharp Gretsch guitar with a bound double-cutaway hollowbody 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, gold plexi pickguard, three-position pickup switch, classic "G" arrow control knobs, rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and Bigsby-licensed B60G vibrato tailpiece, vintage-style open-back tuners and gold-plated hardware.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5422TDCG Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar:

    Got Miss Pearl for Christmas and boy, was Santa GOOD to me! She came out of the box in perfect condition, flawless setup, beautiful finish, and ready to play. The only modification I made was to replace the stock gears 18:1 Grover antiques. Otherwise, this guitar is the best value I've ever seen.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5422TDCG Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar:

      Absolutely love this guitar, First Gretsch I've owned and I will definitely be purchasing another in the future. Extremely versatile and works perfectly for my band (Stereovision). I recommend it to anyone looking for a great semi-hollow/hollowbody guitar. Great out the box but leaves plenty of room for upgrades.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5422TDCG Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar:

      Quite simply, this guitar is impeccable. Especially for the price. I got mine new, played it for a couple weeks and it played pretty well. Then I had the action and intonation set (there was a slight bow in the neck) and some frets leveled. And now it plays like a dream. It feels like a guitar worth three times the price.

      Playing unplugged sounds wonderful, which is a big determining factor in hollowbodies. Plugged in this thing can give you any style you might imagine from a Gretsch hollowobdy (basically everything except high-gain metal). The sweetest, smoothest blues I've ever played. But it can get dirty too through my TS-808 and Vox AC30. Like any archtop, it will get quite a lot of feedback with very high gain and very high volume.

      The white/gold combo is beautiful and elegant. Gretsch is one of the few world-ronowned companies that is still producing stellar instruments worthy of its reputation.

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5422TDCG Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar:

          For some time I was weighing out the pros and cons of buying a G5422 versus a White Falcon and then I realized most Professional Collection Gretches with double cutaways have back pads. For me that was a deal breaker. I'm just not that into big old diaper pads snapped onto the back of my guitar obscuring the beautiful finish. Once I realized the double cutaway White Falcon included this pad - combined with the huge price difference - going for the G5422 was a no-brainer. When I picked up my guitar and brought it home and opened it up I was sure I'd made the right decision. The finish was nearly flawless, but for a tiny *tiny* nick in the finish near the nut. Other than that it's virtually flawless. Compared to the Gibsons I've purchased lately - including a custom shop ES 339, this guitar is superior in craftsmanship and finish. I guess Koreans take more pride in their work than Nashvillians. I've owned and recently sold a G5120 and it was a beautiful instrument as well, but it didn't meet the quality of the 5422. The 5422 has bound f holes, better pickups (blacktop Filter'trons) and a finish that's to die for. And the neck feels great. The photos online don't do this guitar justice. The gold pick guard and gold plated hardware need to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. The sound of the instrument unplugged puts my 339 to shame. Musician's Friend also gave me a great price on this guitar. I've never owned a Country Gentleman but I've played one in the store, and I have to say this Electromatic gives its more expensive siblings a run for their money. If you'd like to own 3 guitars instead of one, go for the Electromatic instead of the White Flacon. If you don't want something this pretty, then buy a Fender or something.
