Like a ’60s invasion, the Gretsch G5422G-12 Electromatic Classic hollowbody double-cut 12-string electric guitar serves up a true Filter’Tron voice for classically lush chime and jangle. It features a laminated maple body with vintage-inspired perimeters and refined arches, as well as trestle block bracing to help reduce unwanted feedback. By increasing rigidity and contact between the top and back of the body, the trestle block design also results in the sound having a faster attack with more focus, snap and sustain. A Classic “C”-shaped maple neck offers a more comfortable playing feel for improved playability and performance, and is topped with a 12”-radius laurel fingerboard.
Coupled with FT-5E Filter’Tron pickups, the G5422G-12 Electromatic Classic’s voice explodes with huge full-bodied punch, classic chime and enhanced presence. The versatile upgraded controls include a master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone, individual pickup volume controls and a 3-position tone switch for further tonal sculpting. Additional features include oversized bound f-holes, multi-ply body binding, a smaller late-’50s G6120 bound headstock, sealed die-cast tuning machines, GraphTech NuBone nut, historic pearloid Hump Block inlays, a secured Adjusto-Matic bridge and a Gretsch G-cutout tailpiece.
