Product Description

Classic Gretsch style, tone, quality, and vibe! The Gretsch G5422TDC Electromatic Hollow Body Electric Guitar embodies what Gretsch is all about at a great price! With a bound double-cutaway hollow body featuring sound-post bracing and elegant bound f holes, the G5422TDC has great chime and a vocal like tone that is very pleasant to the ears. A maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and hump-block pearloid inlays add to the classic bite, warmth and overall look of this high quality instrument.

Gretsch G5422TDC Electromatic HollowBody Electric Guitar Features

  • 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
  • Black Top Filter’Tron pickups for great chime, bite and punch
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 G5422TDC with an electrifying new voice and identity.

It Has That Great Gretsch Sound!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
It's an absolutely beautiful looking and sounding guitar.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
It's a Gretsch, so you go into it knowing it's not the ideal guitar for everything, but it rocks the oldies, and you can have a blast playing early Beatles, Stray Cats, or even Chet Atkins, if you can hang with Chet.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It has a nice neck, and it's very light for a guitar of this size.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The tone was what you expect from the great Gretsch tradition. I had originally bought it to record some Beatles songs and play it on any oldies or whatever, but I rarely play that stuff these days, so the guitar sat there never being touched most of the time. Then I had the idea to set it up for slide guitar, so I jacked up the bridge, put heavy .012 gauge strings on it, reset the intonation, and WOW, what a tone for slide this guitar has!
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish I got is walnut, and it looks amazing.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I got plenty of value. Usually, you think big $$$ when it comes to this brand of guitar. I've played a Country Gentleman many times, and there isn't a real noticeable difference.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
The action was fine, but now that it's set up for slide, I won't be playing any fast licks on it anytime soon.
