Take home the Gretsch G5422TDCG Electromatic Double-Cut hollowbody to get that unmistakable Gretsch twang. Incredibly affordable, yet laden with professional features, the G5422TDCG Electromatic Double-Cut boasts vintage-voiced Gretsch "Black Top" humbucking pickups, an Adjusto-matic bridge, and a Bigsby B60 tailpiece for the subtle pitch modulation that has become synonymous with Gretsch. Three-way pickup switching and four controls, including a master volume, ensure you'll have no problem conjuring the legendary tones the G5422TDCG hollowbody was built for.
Gretsch uncovered a set of Baldwin-era Filter'Tron pickups with incredible punch and twang - perfect for the G5422TDCG Electromatic Double-Cut. They reverse-engineered those special pickups to create the golden set of "Black Top" Filter'Tron humbucking pickups that you'll find loaded in this G5422TDCG. With their robust character and trademark cut, the Gretsch Black Top Filter'Tron humbuckers keep you ready for everything from rockabilly and country to blues and classic rock.
The Gretsch G5422TDCG Electromatic allows you to pull off a lot of tonal tricks. Volume controls for each pickup help you create a perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you've got the pickups dialed in. And thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. And of course, you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually.
Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby-style tailpiece adds to the G5422TDCG Electromatic Double-Cut. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, the Bigsby Licensed B60G tailpiece makes it easy for you to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends. And its gold look keeps with the high-end appointments of your guitar. Guitar World guitarists agree: a vibrato like this is part of the sound of Gretsch.
