The Gretsch G5422DC-12 12-string electric guitar provides heavenly tones that shimmer and sparkle. Thanks to the creative team at Gretsch, a new generation of guitarists can enjoy the complex tonal offerings of a 12-style, with the resilient and reliable build quality we've all come to expect from the instrument building legends.
The hollowbody shape of the G5422DC-12 has been crafted using 5-ply maple. The chambered body allows a great deal of power to be generated, providing a weighty midrange clout. The 5-ply maple resonates easily and produces a bright edginess that cuts through the mid to low end energy. Stylish F-holes in the body top don't just give the model a sophisticated aesthetic, they allow the body top to project the timbre of the guitar with ease, translating the vibrant character of the guitar.
Fitted to the body is a maple neck that is paired with a rosewood fingerboard. Great care has been taken to ensure the neck/fingerboard combo is comfortable to navigate, whilst the generous 24.5 inch scale length allows each one of the 12 strings to resonate freely, giving the guitar incredible sustain. Hump-block fingerboard position inlays providing a stylish navigational aid.
Two "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups are fitted to the body, each in the neck and bridge positions. The "Black Tops" provide excellent tones whether they are played clean or nudged with a touch of overdrive. Whatever style of music you play, these beauties have a lot to offer and love to be put through their paces. Control comes in the form of individual volume controls for each pickup, a master volume pot, a master tone pot, and a 3-position pickup selector.
First-class hardware has been employed throughout, with the rosewood-based adjusto-matic bridge and "G" cutout tailpiece handling the connection between strings and body beautifully, ensuring optimum intonation and string tension throughout each and every performance. The silver plexi pickguard sets off the black finish exquisitely, whilst the headstock seals the deal by bearing the vintage-style open-back tuners, Electromatic inlays and classic Gretsch logo.
Everything about the 5422DC-12 Electromatic 12-string electric guitar rekindles the classic vibe that Gretsch models are beloved for, yet is catered to meet the demands of modern day guitarists.
