        Gretsch G5422TG Electromatic Hollowbody With Bigsby Walnut Stain

        The Gretsch 2016 G5422TG Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar with Bigsby and Gold hardware offers a greater level of class to this already exceptionally stylish model. The sophistication of the body finish, coupled with the sumptuous thinline hollowbody design makes the G5422TG very pleasing on the eye. Whether you're an amateur or a pro, you're bound to turns heads with this gorgeous guitar. As we have come to expect from Gretsch, only the finest appointments are included here, creating a guitar that is versatile in the studio, and resilient enough to cope with anything you can throw its way on the road.

        Body

        The body is shaped to a thinline hollowbody profile, making it very comfortable to perform with without compromising upon its ability to produce a full-bodied timbre. The 5-ply maple tonewood works perfectly with the body design to lay the foundation for a smooth midrange energy that offers a sweet bottom-end and sparkling yet softly rounded highs. The stylish over-sized bound f-holes that are shaped into the top, allow the acoustic timbre to ease through for a smooth, subtle projection. The top is bound to offer protection to the body edges, as well complementing the masterfully executed finish. Protection is offered to the paintwork in the form of a slender yet resilient gloss finish. A gold plexi pickguard finds its home on the body just below the pickups, proudly displaying a black Gretsch logo.

        Neck

        Fitted to the body is a smooth maple neck, which is crafted to a U-shape profile to create a fast-playing feel. Paired with the neck is a bound, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard that is adorned with pearloid hump-block position inlays. The 12-inch fingerboard radius means that performing string bends is a thankfully comfortable experience. The double-cutaway body profile means that each and every fret is within easy reach.

        Hardware

        At the top of the neck you'll find a Graph Tech nubone nut, which works in partnership with the vintage-style open back machine heads to stabilise string tension and improve tuning stability. Connected to the neck is a smaller late 50's G6120 bound headstock, which proudly shows off a white Gretsch logo. Fitted to the G5422TG is an adjusto-matic bridge with a secured rosewood-base, which is paired with a glorious Bigsby Licensed 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.

        Pickups and Controls

        Fitted to the body are two BlackTop Filter'Tron humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. Designed to enhance that fat timbre produced by the body, this pair produce an enviable tonal arsenal 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 master volume and tone pots.

        The Gretsch 2016 G5422TG Electromatic hollowbody guitar with Bigsby tailpiece is a divine model that is a joy to perform with. This is a rock 'n' roll guitar that handles itself exquisitely, responding dutifully with rich tones whether you're playing subtle lo-fi sets, or hammering out stadium-fillers.
