Description

Details

The Gretsch G5422TG Limited Edition Electromatic Double-Cut Hollowbody Guitar, with Bigsby and Gold hardware in Cadillac Green Metallic, is a glorious celebration of a truly wonderful instrument. The thinline hollowbody model is a joy to perform with, and the heavenly finish makes this perfect for those who like to make a presence. Wherever you're performing, and whatever the occasion, this limited edition G5422TG deserves to be shown off for all to appreciate.

Bound double-cutaway body

The thinline hollowbody shape gives the Gretsch G5422TG a light and freeing feel, whilst retaining a healthy ability to produce a balanced and vigorous timbre. The use of maple as the tonewood reinforces the resonant character of the guitar, so that you can be sure of a hearty mid-range energy with a bright-sounding emphasis. Sound post bracing creates stability throughout the body, preventing unwanted warping over time to guarantee that this guitar plays beautifully for years to come. The Cadillac Green Metallic finish is complemented by aged white body binding with black/white/black purfling.

Gloss-finished maple neck

Fitted to the body is a gloss finished maple neck, which is crafted to the standard "U"-shape profile to offer a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. Aged white binding extends along the neck to match up with the binding around the body. Paired with the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is decorated with neo-classic "thumbnail" position inlays to guide your way in discreet fashion. The 12-inch fingerboard radius means that performing string bends is a thankfully comfortable experience, whilst the double-cut body profile means that each fret is within easy reach.

Blacktop Filter'Tron pickups

Fitted to the body are two BlackTop Filter'Tron humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. Designed to enhance the sweet timbre of the body, this pair produce an enviable output 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 a master tone pot.

Premium hardware

At the top of the neck you'll find a smaller late-'50s style G6120 bound headstock, which proudly displays the Gretsch logo. Fitted with vintage-style open-back tuning machines that working a GraphTech NuBone nut, you can perform with consistency thanks to stable tuning and string tension.

Fitted to the G5422TG is an adjusto-matic bridge, which is paired with a glorious gold Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece. The hardware creates a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain, whilst the Bigsby offers accurate and effortless control over vibrato. The result is a setup that responds to the subtle nuances of your playing, so that you can perform with passion and pride.

The Gretsch G5422TG Limited Edition Electromatic Double-Cut Hollowbody Guitar, with Bigsby and Gold hardware in Cadillac Green Metallic, is a heaven-sent work of art. Whether you like to play for yourself at home, jam with friends, or wow adoring fans, this is a guitar that will remind you why you picked up the guitar in the first place.
