This is the all new G5622T Semi-hollow body guitar from Gretsch! The G5622T keeps with the tradition of the Electromatic series offering a great playing and sharp looking guitar with killer tone and an affordable price. Gretsch has had just a few semi-hollow models in the past but the new “center-block” series is their best effort yet. These are simply phenomenal guitars with classic Gretsch vibes and tone but the addition of a “center-block” of spruce adds sustain and feedback rejection. The quality, fit & finish are outstanding with great fretwork and professional level setup. The Super HiLo'Tron pickups offer the classic tones of the “Hilo’Tron” single coil but with increased output and noiseless operation.
About the Guitar (from Gretsch.com):
Alive and loud, Electromatic Center Block guitars are designed for that pure and powerful Gretsch sound at high volume. Painstakingly crafted with essential Gretsch sound, style and playability, these all-new models deliver the fearless and electrifying authenticity that has set Gretsch apart for decades. It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud.
The G5622T Electromatic Center Block Double-Cut with Bigsby features a chambered spruce center block for dynamic resonance, high gain power and lightweight comfort.
Also equipped with dual Super Hilo’Tron humbucking pickups that deliver bold, dynamic and articulate tone with enhanced sonic punch.

Why We Love Gretsch
Gretsch has been handcrafting guitars for over 135 years. The unique sound of the Gretsch semi-hollow body guitar has become synonymous with rockabilly music, one of the first styles of rock ‘n roll. Gretsch guitars are a favorite among musicians like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer and George Harrison. At Cream City Music, we love Gretsch too, which is why we always have a huge selection of new, used and vintage Gretsch guitars in stock.
