Get classic ‘50s & ‘60s -inspired Gretsch sound and style with the Electromatic Classic Hollow Body guitar, here presented in Orange Stain. Crafted with essential Gretsch hollow-body sound, style and playability, these no-nonsense guitars are your next-step Gretsch.
The G5422TG Electromatic Classic Hollow Body Double-Cut features a laminated maple body with vintage-inspired perimeters and refined arches, as well as new 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 increased sustain. Coupled with new FT-5E Filter’Tron pickups, this hollow build’s voice explodes with huge full-bodied punch, classic chime and enhanced presence, clarity and note definition.
A new 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.
