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 G5422TDCG with an electrifying voice and identity.
The G5422TDCG 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, gold plexi pickguard, three-position pickup switch, classic "G" arrow control knobs, rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and Bigsby-licensed B60G vibrato tailpiece, vintage-style open-back tuners and gold-plated hardware.
Case sold separately.

I've only had the guitar for a couple of weeks but I really like it. Very stylish looking. Plays nicely and sounds good. I like the fact that I can get some feedback if I try hard enough for it. I don't know if you can with the brand new model with the full center block. Again, VERY pretty guitar! I REALLY like it...but it should come with a case. I think all 'real' guitars (non toy or bottom of the line entry level guitars) should come with a case. I mean, how would you bring it anywhere?
I also own a G6119-1962HT. This guitar cost me half the money and I can honestly say that the construction, finish and playability are excellent. I am completely surprised at the level of quality at this price point and am very very please with this purchase.
I was looking at an Orange 5422 but came across the G5422 in white , ordered online ,even got a discount here at Guitar Center, the guitar is just beautiful , finish is excellent , sound is great , originally thought if I bought one I would replace the pups with TV Jones , but may not now , sound is fantastic , guitar came with a good setup , plays great , workman ship is very good , I would rate it up there with my USA Strat, 1965 Casino ,Ric4001 , Hofner G5000, wanted a White Falcon but this is a steal at a third of the price .Having my share of guitars over the years ,been playing over 40, I think If your looking at a Gretsch this is a very good choice.
