Unique sound addition to my guitar arsenal!

Bb in Vienna, 08.03.2018
I am a pro rock and blues guitarist. I have 3 Fender Stratocasters, a Telecaster, a Gibson Les Paul, a Les Paul Junior, a Les Paul Special, an ES-339 along with great amps including my Fender Reverb Deluxe, Laney Lionheart, and lately the Roland JC-22 and also many various pedals, of course.

I decided to add a Gretsch hollow body electric, well because I wanted to expand my sound vocabulary even more and this guitar is simply perfect. A very responsive, emotional instrument that has it's very own sounds completely apart from the others I use. Simply plugging this Gretsch into whatever system I had been using with any other guitar and suddenly it all opens up into a huge new world of sounds, ideas and even techniques I had not found on the other instruments.

Of course, chords sound just beautiful and really come alive on this guitar, but I am more impressed with the lead guitar tones of this guitar. Distorted, clean and everything in between and this guitar actually sings with a very confident and distinctive voice all its own.

The workmanship is absolutely top notch, regardless of this "low to mid price". Honestly, an excellent guitar that just excites me very much...the possibilities feel wide open just holding it and playing it is a true pleasure.

I would have to say that if I were to have only one guitar to express myself, I would use my Stratocaster because of the sheer variety living in it. That said, my Gretsch and I still have quite a lot to say and I would be quite proud with this excellent guitar as my one and only sound.

Impressive!

Markus565, 16.10.2016
Why Gretsch? I think the cool `50s look for many plays a decisive role. But to get it going, the G5422t convinced me on the whole line, both in terms of processing and sound.

The Gretsch from the Electromatic series is built in Korea at Samick. And Samick himself is not an untitled sheet in guitar construction. The processing quality is top. There is sometimes a tiny coloring at the binding, but please. No reason for a devaluation. Also inside the cleanest processing, no glues or similar. I was delighted by the factory setting. Maybe someone had a good day. The lateral position was extremely flat with an almost straight neck, without any rattling in all positions on all sides. The playability is top. The described "U" -profile of the neck had initially deterred me, but I can give all-clear. The neck is NOT clunky but very pleasantly playable.

Compared to the previous model, the G5422t was optically enhanced. Smaller head plate with binding, multiple binding on the body, Electromatic lettering now on the pickguard and Neo-Classic (thumbnail) inserts. All in all, totally harmonious design. Something surprising was the light headlift despite Bigsby and smaller head plate. But this can be corrected with the appropriate strap. Belt, ... yes that is the only thing you have to deal with.

The belt girths are Gretsch-typical, ie one can unscrew the upper part, tighten the belt over and again. Quasi an early security system. Looks great, but in practice but depending on the thickness of the belt is somewhat fiddly. Nothing for just fast on it and down again. Man "married" practically the belt longer term with the guitar. Whoever often takes the belt down should perhaps think about a change to Schaller security locks, which makes Gretsch, for example, even on the Players edition.

The sound is Gretsch-typical and ultimately absolutely versatile. Clean or torn everything sounds great with the Blacktop filter trons. This is not just for Country or Rockabilly. Definitely not (what Pete Townshend played again on "Who? S Next"? Gretsch!).

The price is fair, but you should definitely have a suitcase with. The guitar comes in the cardboard box, but definitely deserved a suitcase.
