Gretsch G5422G-12 Electromatic Black

The Gretsch G5422G-12 Electromatic Hollow Body is a new 12-string that has a handful of new improvements on their classic 5422. There’s the treble bleed on the master volume, a new 4-ply binding on the body and a rebound headstock. The 5-ply Maple tonewood body has been shaped with a thinline hollowbody profile with elegant bound over-size f-holes and the vintage aesthetic of their historic models is enhanced with gold hardware…

Other features of the Gretsch G5422G-12 Electromatic include a Maple neck, bound Rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium frets and Pearloid Neo-classic ‘Thumbnail’ Markers, silver plexi pickguard with Gretsch Electromatic Logo, 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.

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 G5422G with an electrifying new voice and identity.
