The Nashville-style hollowbody shape of the G5422T-LTD has been crafted using laminated maple. The chambered body allows a smouldering energy to develop, providing a weighty midrange clout that is infused with substantial warmth. The laminated maple resonates freely, producing a sparkling articulation that cuts through the mid to low-end. Stylish F-holes in the body top aren't just a stylistic element, they allow the body top to project the timbre of the guitar acoustically, translating the vibrant character with the utmost clarity.
Solid Neck Construction
Fitted to the body is a maple neck with U-shape profile. Paired with the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with hump-block position inlays. Great care has been taken to ensure the neck/fingerboard combo is comfortable to navigate, whilst the generous 24.5" scale length gives the guitar incredible sustain, and the 12-inch fingerboard radius means that string bends can be executed seamlessly.
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 handles the connection between strings and body beautifully, ensuring optimum intonation and string tension throughout each and every performance. The Bigsby B60G tailpiece allows you to control vibrato with absolute precision. The gold plexi pickguard sets off the black finish exquisitely, whilst the headstock seals the deal by bearing the vintage-style open-back tuners, Electromatic inlay and classic Gretsch logo.
The Gretsch G5422T-LTD Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar in Limited Edition Black and Gold is a magnificent instrument that performs beautifully. If you’re seeking luxury without the exorbitant price tag, then this is the model you’ve been waiting for.
