What makes this guitar special: This is the newly redesigned G5422TG Electromatic hollow body from Gretsch! Since its introduction, the Electromatic series has embodied the essential Gretsch design and tone elements at an affordable price. With a few new tweaks, Gretsch has taken this outstanding line of electrics to a new level of professionalism and value for this version. For the new G5422TG Gretsch has added gold hardware, the body is now quadruple bound, and it is finished with an aged white binding giving the guitar more luxurious yet vintage style. They have added a Graphtech Nubone nut for increased sustain and reduced string friction, which helps keep the guitar in tune with even the most rigorous Bigsby tremolo modulations. Gretsch has also modified the electronics, adding a treble bleed circuit to the volume pot, so your tone stays clean and crisp as you swell the volume.
Cosmetic Condition: Excellent overall condition. This guitar has a few minor surface scratches, but these only show in direct light. Otherwise, the guitar is virtually spotless, plus, it includes the Cream City Music signature setup.

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.
