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.

Just a great guitar!

Norbert5368, 22.08.2018
I am a singer and guitarist in a hard rock band.
I'm more of a rhythm guitarist, so I wanted a different sound to the normal electric guitar. I have listened to and tried different models in the shop myself and finally got stuck with the Gretsch G5422T.
I just think that she is optically a hammer part and that is constantly confirmed by others. The guitar is super processed, I've taken a close look at it and found no scratches or blemishes.
The most important is the playability and the sound.

sound:
It is balanced and sounds like you imagine such a guitar. It's just fuller and rounder in overall sound than a standard electric guitar. This gets a much more punchy sound out of the band without it sounding like mud! ;)
Without Overdrive or Zerre it also sounds much more like an acoustic guitar, which is also an important reason for me with varied music without constantly wanting to change instruments!
The only thing I have to go along with and want is Bigsby! Who does not really need a variant should choose without. I noticed quite timely that this detunes the guitar faster and you have to re-tune regularly. I make it between each song, quickly pressed on board on the tuner and readjust. That does not bother me at all.

Conclusion:
If you want a guitar that looks good and the sound is very good, this one is the right one !!!
However, if you do not feel like regular voices should take a variant without Bigsby!
