Gretsch Announces Upgraded Electromatic Collection

Gretsch has announced new features and finishes for some of its Electromatic Collection Hollow Body models.

The new Electromatics are available as single and double-cut hollow body guitars, and include left-handed and 12-string options. All are outfitted with dual Black Top Filter’Tron humbucking pickups, and also include a master volume treble-bleed circuit, Graph Tech NuBone nut, four-ply body binding and a smaller, late-Fifties bound headstock.

This guitar is available in three colors: Orange Stain, Aspen Green and Fairlane Blue.

G5422T Electromatic Hollow Body Double-Cut with Bigsby

The double-cut Electromatic guitar features a thinner, fully hollow build that uses the Black Top Filter’Tron voice to capture a more resonant sound. This model has many of the same features as its single-cut counterpart, including G-arrow control knobs, a Graph Tech NuBone nut, vintage-style open back tuning machines and Bigsby B60 tailpiece.

The G5422T exhibits the same standout neck features as the single-cut, with a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard, pearloid Neo-Classic inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets and a maple neck with a thin “U”-shaped profile.
