The Gretsch 2016 G5422TG-12 12-String Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar with Gold hardware delivers the sumptuous style and sophistication of the G5422 in a 12-string model. Delivering the lush tonal complexity of a hollowbody with the classic chime and jangle that comes with the increased string count, Gretsch has created a breath-taking model that is equally at home in the studio and on the stage. Packed with a pair of Blacktop Filter'Tron pickups, you can play the mesmerising timbre of the G5422TG-12 via an amplifier without making any compromise with regard to timbre.

Bound thinline double-cutaway body

The body has been shaped to that of a thinline hollowbody profile, which marries comfortability and tonal versatility beautifully. The 5-ply maple tonewood works harmoniously with the body profile to generate a confident midrange energy that has a softly rounded low end and sparkling brilliance across the upper frequencies.

As well as ensuring the timbre of the G5422TG-12 is second to none, the team at Gretsch have gone to great lengths to resurrect the vintage aesthetic of their historic models, whilst appointing modern touches to maintain a solid and stable playing feel. The body top incorporates stylish over-sized bound f-holes, which allow the timbre to ease through for a smooth yet subtle acoustic projection. The top is bound to offer protection to the edges and complement the finish. Protection is offered to the paintwork in the form of a slender yet resilient gloss finish. A gold plexi pickguard, complete with black Gretsch logo, resides just beneath the pickups to prevent unwanted nicks and scrapes from affecting the lower bout.

Gloss-finished maple neck

Joined to the body is a fast-playing, gloss-finished maple neck, which is shaped to a "U"-shape profile to create a comfortable feel in the hand. Paired with the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, which has been bound to guarantee seamless transitions between frets that are adorned with pearloid hump-block position inlays. The 12-inch fingerboard radius makes executing string bends are breeze, whilst the double-cutaway body profile means that each and every fret is within easy reach.

Gig-ready hardware

At the top of the neck you'll find a Graph Tech nubone nut, which works in partnership with the vintage-style open-back tuning machines to stabilise string tension and tuning integrity. Connected to the body is a smaller late-'50s G6120 bound headstock, which proudly shows off a white Gretsch logo. Fitted to the G5422TG-12 is an adjusto-matic bridge with a secured rosewood-base, which is paired with a Gretshc G-Cutout tailpiece. The hardware creates a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain.

Blacktop Filter'Tron pickups

Fitted to the body are two BlackTop Filter'Tron humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. Designed to enhance the "fat" timbre produced by the body, this pair produce an enviable tonal arsenal for you to play with. The neck position enhances the plucky articulation of the neck and fingerboard, whilst the bridge pickup draws more from the body, generating a thunderous charge when you want it.

Control over the pickups comes in the form of a three-way pickup selector toggle switch, which allows you to select either pickup independently or select both outputs simultaneously for a fuller tone. Each pickup has an independent volume knob, and both are connected to master volume and tone pots.

The Gretsch 2016 G5422TG-12 Electromatic hollowbody guitar is the perfect model for those who want the sparkling majesty of a 12-string in a model that is very comfortable to perform with, and offers a highly versatile tonal palette to paint with. Whether you're picking up your first model, or are a seasoned pro who is seeking a reliable touring partner, it doesn't get much better than this.
