Play Proudly with the Authentic Sound of the Gretsch G5422G-12 Electromatic Classic Double-Cut 12-String Hollowbody with Gold Hardware

Get classic '50s and '60s -inspired Gretsch sound and style with Gretsch's Electromatic® Classic Hollow Body guitars. Crafted with essential Gretsch hollow-body sound, style and playability, these no-nonsense guitars are your next-step Gretsch. Like a '60s invasion, the G5422G-12 Electromatic® Classic Hollow Body Double-Cut 12-String with Gold Hardware serves up full hollow-body 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 quintessential rock 'n' roll guitars from the very beginning.

The G5422G-12 features a laminated maple body with vintage-inspired perimeters and refined arches, as well as all-new trestle block bracing to help reduce unwanted feedback. By increasing rigidity and contact between the top and back of the body, the new trestle block design also results in the sound having a faster attack with more focus, snap, and increased sustain. Coupled with all-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 Classic "C"-shaped maple neck offers a more comfortable playing feel for improved playability and performance, and is topped with a 12-inch radius laurel fingerboard.

Other premium features include versatile upgraded controls including master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone, individual pickup volume controls and three-position tone switch, oversized bound F-holes, multi-ply body binding, smaller late-'50s G6120 bound headstock, sealed die-cast tuning machines, Graph Tech® NuBone® nut, historic pearloid Hump Block inlays, secured Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and a Gretsch G-cutout tailpiece. Alive and loud, the G5422G-12 comes in a Walnut Stain finish with gold hardware and gold pickguard.
