Gretsch G5422G-12 Electromatic 12-string Hollowbody Guitar at a Glance:

  • Introducing the "Black Top" humbucking pickups
  • Exceptional sonic flexibility
  • The classic jangle of a 12-string electric guitar

Introducing the "Black Top" humbucking pickups

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.

Exceptional sonic flexibility

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.

The classic jangle of a 12-string electric guitar

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.
