A double-cutaway hollowbody with Filter'Tron™ pickups and Bigsby tremolo.

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 "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups, which now endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5422TDC with an electrifying voice and identity.

The G5422TDC Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar is a sharp Gretsch guitar with a bound double-cutaway hollowbody featuring sound-post bracing and elegant bound f holes. Other features include a maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and hump-block pearloid inlays, silver plexi pickguard, three-position pickup switch, classic "G" arrow control knobs, rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and Bigsby-licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece, vintage-style open-back tuners and chrome-plated hardware.

Case sold separately.

  • Amazing in every way

    As reviewed by michael miles on 6/10/2013

    I got my Gretsch G5422TDC in Walnut May 14,2013. I absolutely love it. It is superior in every way to all other models similar to it. The quality of construction, fit, finish, sound, weight, and neck are far superior to the others, Epiphone Swingster Royale, Ibanez, etc. The blacktop Filtertron pick ups are great, love the Bigsby B60 Tailpiece, and vibrato. I'm very happy with my decision, and the staff at Guitar Center were great. Joy was my salesperson, she is very knowledgeable, highly recommend her and the store, and of course the guitar. Love It, Love It. Now I know why George Harrison and John Lennon, both played Gretsch. I paired mine with a Vox Valvetronix VT80+ 80 Watt 1X12 Combo Amp, and they are the perfect match. I would still like to add the Vox AC30C2X 30 Watt 2X12 in the future. Thank You again Joy and Guitar Center. Mike Males

  • My guitar gently weeps.

    As reviewed by dennis berry on 3/19/2013

    George Harrison, was right; this guitar will cry, it will resonate, it will call others to you. It's voice is like the call of a bird on a moonlit lake. The neck is fast and true, you can stop on a dime and give 9 cents change. Blues notes would do Albert,and B.B. King proud. you can Rock and Roll like Chuck Berry, or sling precise melodic riffs in the discipline of Chet Atkins. This is a quality instrument. She has a voice like Strisand and Huston, awsome range and guality. This guitar will take you where ever you have the ability to ask it go. Her only limit is, my Talent. as I get better, "ROXANNE" has the "RED LIGHT" ON and IS "Waiting, Silently For ME". She is not expensive, but she is quality. This baby will look good on your arm too.

  • Very Nice Guitar for the Price

    As reviewed by WILL HARRIS on 11/19/2012

    I ordered an Epiphone 345 and waited eight months only to find out they quit making it. I had looked at the Gretsch 5122 and opted for the Epi. I've had this guitar now for a couple of weeks and I have to say the G5422TDC is one very well made and great sounding guitar for the money. Out of the box intonation was great, flawless workmanship I got the transparent red and Im very satisfied with this guitar.
