Get classic 50s & 60s -inspired Gretsch sound and style with the 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 FilterTron 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 the 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 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 FT-5E FilterTron pickups, this hollow builds 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-radius laurel fingerboard.
