Teeming with classic Gretsch styling, the G5622T Electromatic is in a class of its own. This double-cutaway semi-hollowbody electric guitar delivers a shimmering sparkle — and that’s before you even plug it in! Amplified, the G5622T exhibits a balanced sound, thanks to its Black Top Broad’Tron humbuckers, while a weight-relieved center block provides feedback-free performance — even under high gain. You’ll appreciate the comfortable playability of this semi’s U-shaped neck, and its Bigsby B70 tailpiece serves up all the texture and sustain you could ever want. Make no mistake, the Gretsch G5622T Electromatic is a surefire way to chase the vintage hollowbody tones you’ve always craved.
Maple is one of the most lively, bright, and colorful tonewoods out there, which is exactly why Gretsch decided to make their G5622T Electromatic almost entirely out of this wonderful wood. This semi-hollowbody’s laminated body yields a wonderfully snappy, open tone that — when combined with the balanced character of its Black Top Broad’Tron pickups — cuts through a dense mix and sounds great in any situation.
Long spruce center block delivers feedback-free hollowbody tone
Thanks to its long spruce center block, you get a lot of tonal bang for your buck with the Gretsch G5622T Electromatic. Running the full length of the body, the center block allows the otherwise hollow body to resist resonant-frequency feedback. At Sweetwater, we’ve found that this weight-relieved center block lets us rock out louder, with more gain, without our amplifier squealing out of control. Plus, spruce is a snappy tonewood, and since the center block connects with the bridge, the note definition, the clarity, and the sustain on the Electromatic are amazing.
Bigsby B70 vibrato tailpiece adds vintage character
For those who love mellow vibrato, you’ll be jazzed about the Bigsby B70 vibrato tailpiece that’s installed on the G5622T Electromatic. You can use this tremolo system to create smooth dipped chords and accented bends. The character and vintage vibe of the Bigsby doesn’t just sound great, it looks great, too. The B70’s rugged construction ensures that you’ll be able to create subtle vibrato textures for years to come.
