Gretsch Guitars

Description

No nonsense, Electromatic hollow-body guitars are the perfect real, pure and powerful Gretsch instruments. They’re your next-step Gretsch— bold, dynamic and articulate, and crafted with essential Gretsch sound, style and playability.

Like a ’60s invasion, the G5422G-12 serves up full hollowbody build and the true Filter’Tron voice for that classically lush 12-string chime and jangle. Like all Electromatic guitars, it delivers the fearless and electrifying authenticity that has set Gretsch apart as the quintessential rock ‘n’ roll guitars from the very beginning. It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud. Case sold separately.
