The Gretsch G5422DC-12 Electromatic electric guitar delivers the sublime shimmering tones of a 12-string at a highly affordable price. This fantastic model features the vintage-style and tones we've all come to know and love from a Gretsch, with the reliability of modern build quality and superb hardware appointments. With over 100 years worth of experience in the industry, it's safe to say that Gretsch know a thing or two about designing and building instruments to an exceptional standard. The G5422DC-12 benefits from this knowledge, and this dream-double cutaway hollowbody 12-string beauty should be at the top of every guitarist's wishlist.


In order to create a full-bodied tone, the hollowbody design has been crafted using 5-ply maple, which resonates with ease and freedom that other tonewoods could only dream of. The supple maple allows the chambered body to develop a tremendous energy, and thanks to its naturally bright timbre, the G5422DC-12 is full of sparkle and infused with tremendous articulation. The sublime F-holes project the timbre of the maple acoustically, which is fantastic during recordings and small gigs.

Fitted to the body is a responsive and slender maple neck, which has been set into the body to promote greater resonance and sustain. Married to the neck is a smooth playing, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard that is bound to create a seamless feel when making the transition between each fret. The maple/rosewood combination enables each note to ring out with the utmost articulation, whilst the double-cutaway body design makes access to the upper frets an absolute breeze.


The Gretsch G5422DC-12 is equipped with a pair of "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups that are modelled on a Baldwin-era set found by a Gretsch research and development team. In order to translate the unique quality of the 12-string setup and the combination of exquisite tonewoods, the Black Tops release tones with a deft subtlety. Whether you're playing clean, or with a hint over overdrive, or pushing hard with distortion, the guitar delivers tones with enviable clarity. Control comes in the form of individual volume pots for each pickup, a master output volume pot, a master tone pot to roll back the high frequencies, and a 3-way pickup selector switch. Creating subtle blends of each pickup is easy, or you can solo either, let your imagination run wild.


The G5422DC-12 benefits from the delightfully responsive and reliable partnership between a rosewood-based adjusto-matic bridge and the body. The bridge handles intonation and sustain dutifully, whilst the vintage-style open-back tuners uphold tuning integrity throughout each and every performance.

If you're looking for a model that oozes vintage-style, produces rich vintage tones, has the reliability and consistency of a modern instrument, and provides shimmering 12-string tones, then the Gretsch G5422DC-12 Electromatic electric guitar is the perfect choice.
