Music Store Live is proud to present this Gretsch G5422TDC Electromatic Hollow Body! The playability and tone of this guitar is just outrageous for the price range it's in. You would swear you're playing a $2K+ guitar. The body is very resonant and delivers a full and fat tone from every pickup configuration. The Bigsby is terribly smooth to operate and has a very nice response to it. This axe is perfect for swampy-tonking, blues, jazz, western swing, indie folk rock and experimental music. Tonally, this guitar has a tight low end with a nice amount of bite to it, a glowing mid range and an airy top end that cuts through nicely. This is tons of guitar for the money.
This Gretsch G5422TDC looks and feels a lot like the Gretsch White Falcon without carrying the same price tag. The 5 ply maple hollow body features a double cutaway and a gloss urethane finish. The body depth is 2.25", loaning itself very well to a wide variety of styles and not being so deep that feedback is a constant issue unless you're playing at ridiculously loud volumes. The maple neck features an easy to navigate profile that has broader shoulders rather than lots of depth. The pair of "Black Top" Filter Tron pickups deliver tons of punch and clarity (more below). Other fine features include the Bigsby B60G Vibrato Tailpiece, chrome hardware, a bound rosewood fretboard with hump-block inlays, gold plexi pickguard and a Gretsch soft shell case.
The following information is from Gretsch's website:
When the Gretsch R&D team recently unearthed a Baldwin-era Filter’Tron pickup with knockout punch and phenomenal twang, they incorporated its DNA into dynamic new “Black Top” Filter’Tron™ pickups, which now endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5422TDC with an electrifying new voice and identity.
This Gretsch Electromatic Hollow Body G5422TDC is in brand new pristine mint condition with absolutely no nicks, scratches, or blemishes of any kind.
