Gretsch introduce new double-cutaway G5622T-CB Electromatic® Center-Block – featuring That Great Gretsch Sound™ with the “center-block advantage”. The interior solid spruce center block running the length of the guitar’s 1 ¾”-deep thinline-style body makes for a lively “high gain-friendly” tone and delivers greater control over the kind of feedback players want. Other premium features include five-ply maple body construction with a bound arched top and back, bound “cat’s eye” sound holes and a bound maple neck, five “G-arrow” control knobs, anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and flat-handle Bigsby®-licensed B70 vibrato and Grover® tuners.
