Gretsch Electromatic G5622T Centre Block Double Cut Black 2017
Gretsch Electromatic G5622T, black, 2017. This is basically brand new, it was purchased new and then traded on to us about 4 weeks later. As such, it's really barely got a mark on it, it would suit a new buyer. This is a new-ish model for Gretsch, it sits about halfway between a Country Classic and a Gibson 335. The body has a solid centre block of spruce, lending some extra sustain and brightness to the tone; the pickups deliver that classic Gretsch sparkle in the highs, but it's a little more agressive through the mids than a 6120 or Country Gent. The build quality is excellent and the neck is very comfortable, it feels very tidy and responsive in the hands. The piano-black finish is classy, it pops beautifully against the cream binding. Save yourself a stack against a new one and get sharpen your rockabilly capabilities with this classy companion!
