This guitar is rare. It is one of only 200 Cherry Blossom guitars ever produced from Gretsch. Don't miss this chance to own a great part of Gretsch history.
This Cherry Blossom beauty looks and feels a lot like the Gretsch White Falcon without carrying the same price tag. The 5 ply maple hollow body features a double cutaway and a gloss urethane finish. The body depth is 2.25", loaning itself very well to a wide variety of styles and not being so deep that feedback is a constant issue unless you're playing at ridiculously loud volumes. The maple neck features an easy to navigate profile that has broader shoulders on it and lots of depth. The pair of "Black Top" Filter Tron pickups deliver tons of punch and clarity (more below). Other fine features include the Bigsby B60G Vibrato Tailpiece, gold plated hardware, a bound rosewood fretboard with hump-block inlays, gold plexi pickguard and a Gretsch soft shell case.
The following information is from Gretsch's website:
When the Gretsch R&D team recently unearthed a Baldwin-era Filter’Tron pickup with knockout punch and phenomenal twang, they incorporated its DNA into dynamic new “Black Top” Filter’Tron™ pickups, which now endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5422TDCG with an electrifying new voice and identity.Overall Condition
This Gretsch Electromatic Hollow Body G5422TDCG is in Excellent condition with no visible nicks or scratches under my inspection. The neck joint looks solid and all hardware operates just as it should. The Gretsch hardshell case has minor nicks and bumps along the edges (close up images shown). These in no way impede the protection of the case or have shown through to the guitars finish.Specs
