OVERVIEW

A checklist of great Gretsch features.

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 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 G5422TG Electromatic Double Cutaway Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    the strings which were dead and tarnished. They deposited oxide all over my fingers. How that happens on a new guitar I do not know. Once I changed them for some quality (LaBella) jazz strings everything was as I remembered my old Gretsch sounded and played. The Filtertron pickups are definitely better than the Generitrons of the less expensive models.

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5422TG Electromatic Double Cutaway Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        At first I was on the fence about all new semi hollowbody guitars and I have played many and not being impressed.But reading reviews and stats on this Gretsch and it being a full hollowbody I was curious so I made the purchase and after a week of playing and tweaking the various tones with the controls I am in love with this Gretsch because it filled all the sound gaps I was missing with other brands....I'm keeping this one seriously

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5422TG Electromatic Double Cutaway Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

            I bought this guitar because I knew Gretsch made a good guitar. I was disappointed after hooking it up to my amp and trying to get a decent sound out of it. I had all the knobs on the guitar cranked up to their highest position and didn't get much of a sound out of it. At least the sound was not as loud as my Ibanez with the amp at the same level. I had to fool with the pickups because all of them seemed to be cranked all the way down. After moving them up to within 1/16" for the high strings and 1/8" for the low strings I started to get a louder sound. Over the next couple days I kept fooling with the pickups to try and get good sound out of each string. I finally got a half way decent sound out of all the strings but the third. It still sounds a bit muffled compared to the other strings. I am considering changing up the strings because the ones that come with the guitar are a little heavier than I am used too. The action is still good on the guitar, and the high notes play clean but I believe I can move quicker with lighter gauge strings. I am also hoping that the strings are causing the sound problem with the third string. If I am allowed to do this without it affecting my return options I am going to do it. Otherwise I will probably just return the guitar.

            Incidentally the guitar sounds pretty good when I finger-pick, it's when I flat pick that I notice the poorer sound quality. It could be because when I finger pick I don't use any picks on my fingers, just the flesh of the finger tips for a softer sound.
