Gretsch G5422G-12 string Electromatic Hollow Body Electric The Gretsch G5422G-12 Electromatic 12-string hollowbody electric guitar captures the classic jangly 12-string sound of the 1960s. Brought into popularity by guitarists like Roger McGuinn of the Byrds and Mike Nesmith of the Monkees, the double-cutaway 12-string electric has been a staple tone in guitarists' arsenal ever since the flower-power generation first adopted it. Gretsch guitars such as the G5422G-12 have been sought-after for their chimey and jangly tones that only they can provide.

Gretsch uncovered a set of Baldwin-era Filter'Tron pickups with incredible punch and twang - perfect for the G5422G-12 Electromatic 12-string hollowbody. They reverse engineered those special pickups to create the "Black Top" Filter'Tron humbucking pickups. These humbucking pickups offer the distinctive Gretsch top-end clarity that is necessary for single-note or chordal electric 12-string playing, while still having enough low end to ensure your sound is never thin or shrill.

It's easy to stereotype the Gretsch G5422G-12 Electromatic 12-string hollowbody until you play it, and then you realize you can pull off a lot of tonal tricks with it. Volume controls for each pickup let you create a perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you've got the pickups dialed in. And of course you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually.

Stand alone or added to your current guitar collection, this cool instrument wont disapoint.
