Awesome Sustain Plus Semi-hollowbody Tone

Experience a wide range of guitar tone with the Gretsch G5622T Electromatic Center Block semi-hollowbody electric guitar. This fun and versatile instrument was made for both live players and studio cats alike, with its low-feedback design and flexible voicing. A chambered spruce center block delivers impressive sustain while also helping avoid feedback onstage. The Bigsby licensed vibrato tailpiece lets you perform smooth and subtle bends for classic Gretsch tone. And at the heart of it all, a pair of Super HiLo'Tron humbuckers give the Gretsch G5622T Electromatic Center Block guitar a truly remarkable sonic range.

Craft amazing tone with Super HiLo'Tron humbuckers

The Gretsch G5622T semi-hollowbody electric guitar certainly doesn't scrimp on tone, thanks to a pair of Super HiLo'Tron dual-coil pickups. These special humbuckers were engineered to give your G5622T a pre-EQ'd tone, with lots of high-end sparkle and low-end punch to fill out your sound. Add to that a flexible pickup switching circuit that lets you quickly jump between your favorite configurations, and you're in for a world of tone.

Long spruce center block enhances your sound

You get a lot of tonal bang for your buck with the Gretsch G5622T, thanks to its long spruce center block. Running the full length of the body, the center block allows the otherwise hollow body to resist resonant-frequency feedback. That means you can rock out louder with more gain, without your amplifier squealing out of control. Spruce is a snappy tonewood too, and since the center block connects with the bridge, the note definition and clarity of the G5622T are amazing.

Smooth vibrato action, courtesy of a real Bigsby tailpiece

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby tailpiece adds. It's particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle bends and fast flutters with the G5622T, thanks to its Bigsby-licensed vibrato tailpiece.

Gretsch G5622T

Great build quality. Plays excellent. Pickups are better than the last version. Changing them out is easy now that they use plug in connectors. Hardware is average. Only complaint is the bridge rattles due to poor tolerances. Had to change it the first day I got the guitar. Come on Gretsch. Just update the cheap bridge already.
