Gretsch G5422TDC Electromatic Double-cutaway hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Introducing the bright and spanky "Black Top" humbucking pickups
Gretsch uncovered a set of Baldwin-era Filter'Tron pickups with incredible punch and twang - perfect for the G5422TDC Electromatic Double-cutaway hollowbody. They reverse engineered those special pickups to create the "Black Top" Filter'Tron humbucking pickups. You'll be ready for everything from rockabilly and country to blues and classic rock with your G5422TDC and Black Top Filter'Trons in your guitar case.
Two volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility
It's easy to stereotype the Gretsch G5422TDC Electromatic Double-cutaway hollowbody until you play it, and then you realize you can pull of a lot of tonal tricks with it. With a volume control for each pickup, you can create your perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you've got the pickups dialed in. And thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. Of course, you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually, but there's a lot of territory to cover when you combine them.
Smooth Vibrato Action Courtesy of Bigsby
Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby-style tailpiece adds to the G5422TDC Electromatic Double-cutaway hollowbody. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, the Bigsby Licensed B60G tailpiece requires next to no effort to use, making it particularly easy for you to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends with the G5422TDC Electromatic Double-cutaway hollowbody.

Awesome! Gretsch G 5422 TDC Electromatic hollow body
by Paul Goughary from Binghamton, NY, USAThis is the 3rd Gretchen guitar I purchased and they just keep getting better. These are obviously not the high end, pricey gretsch guitars that most of us cannot afford, let alone take into the battl... read more [+]e zones, but they ARE affordable, working guitars with great Gretsch quality. The sound is exactly what you would expect...phenomenal! I play Beatles, Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Ronstadt, etc. (we have a female singer), this guitar handles it all, and handles it well. I am completely satisfied with this axe, and if anything should ever happen to it, I would replace it with another one in a New York minute. close [-]

Besides being be... read more [+]autiful, the G5422 is one of the most versatile guitars on the market. The unique sound is rich and smooth with just a touch of twang on the high end. The bound F-holes and Filtertron pickups are a great improvement over previous guitars in this price range. Combining this with the ease of play makes this a great guitar for any level of player. close [-]
