Willdrix's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent!"

Gretsch G5422TDCG Electromatic Hollow Body
Made in Korea
Floating ebony bridge
Bigsby tailpiece license
Maple neck, rosewood fingerboard.
Two microphones FilterTron blacktop.
A micro volume, a general tone, a master volume (very handy!)
Very nice finish, impeccable quality of stringed instruments.
It is a beautiful guitar, it has a terrible look in transparent red!


Handle very nice, access to acute is no problem, the guitar is light and very comfortable, the settings are effective and easy to get good sounds.
The typical Gretsch sound is there, even if it is rather to address the most versatile styles: blues, rockabilly course, british'pop and even funk, ideal for vintage sounds ... bossa and jazz are just made affordable with the neck pickup.


It suits me perfectly for the styles I play (again blues pop rock) and is even more versatile than I thought. It perfectly complements my staff from scratch (U.S. Standard Stratocaster, Telecaster and Hofner solid body of 1963)
I play Fender Hot Rod Laney VC15 and the dynamics are excellent, compressed sound to perfection.
It is a typical vintage guitar that perfectly expresses with a good amp lamps.
The clean sounds are clear and crystalline, my preference going to the middle position. Neck pickup sound is round, full and rich, with great sustain and is more aggressive pickup without being garish (nickel for Chuck Berry riffs!).
Crunches sounds going very well on the three positions up to a saturation quite acceptable, but hang on, zero feedback, despite the absence of a central beam.
With a short delay, a hint of tremolo and double trouble tube screamer is happiness!


I do not use since its purchase, there 10 days, but I did loose more!
I tried the full range of archtop Epiphone (casino, dot, Emperor Swingster, wild cat, Sheraton ...), other gretsch (5120) and the vikings in Hagstrom, I owned an Epiphone Riviera , and frankly there is no picture!
Particumièrement I appreciate the look and finishes, she really face!
I like both typed his gretsch, vintage, and versatility.
Admittedly, this is not a U.S. Gretsch or Gibson ES, but it is not the same budget!
I think once changed the original strings (middle), and after a good pass from my luthier it will fill me for long.
Eventually, I plan to replace the pickups with TV Jones, and there it should be a real killer for less than 1000 € ... that you ask?
I remake the same choice again in this price range, in connection with my modest ;-)

twang54's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not for jazzman!"

Gretsch G5422TDCG Electromatic Hollow Body
It is made in Korea, maple neck rosewood fingerboard, maple body 5-ply laminate, B60G Bigsby vibrato tailpiece licensed, micro black top FilterTron "Baldwin era" the varnish is identical to the majority of polyurethane gretsch Japan!


Very nice guitar overall, weight, ergonomics, sound, small flat, mechanical head are "cheap" quickly replaced by sperzel to blockages. Sound nothing to say, it is a gretsch!!! This is not a Gretsch at a discount (according to the previous opinion). I have a 7593 falcon and although the 5422 is not ridiculous is this not the same as compared guitars is ready to wear and haute couture "irrelevant". Concerning the licensed Bigsby Asian manufacturing yields the same result as the U.S. model B6G changing the ressort.Pas difference SON! Beware the floating bridge being must guitar is perfectly set with a suitable pulling strings 10/52 minimum and yeah Not for beginners and good box fingers premium.


I'm talking about a guitar that I have and not something tried to go as I push you twenty minutes or shop one morning. This is a guitar Rock'n roll is not really versatile, but it is not what you asked, nickel rock, garage, surf, found the side of a twangy telecaster. It is not for jazz, must go on the ropes, it goes very well on vintage amps typed, Basssman, princeton reberb 65 vox ac 15, Orange. The mics have a good level of output that we send a little drache ok but it is not TV Jones, like this is not for the metal, but we doubt it.


Good value for money, there's good manufacturing What looked collages and cons sides no offense to piss and vinegar trolls service! Less than a thousand balls the guitar better but there's three or four times more expensive and that is not sound three to four times better. It's not the guitar that makes the guitarist.

CT-64140's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Gretsch only by the name!"

Gretsch G5422TDCG Electromatic Hollow Body
The model which I'll talk was stamped "Korea"

Characteristics are widely available on the net, no need to make the repetition. This guitar is equipped in its design as a "real" Gretsch. But it is far from its bigger brothers (overall quality of construction materials and components, probably)

I always found this beautiful guitar picture. This is probably what drove me to acquire one. In truth, about ten meters, I still found it a little effect and as and as I approached it, a sense of "quincaille" took over. Closely, this guitar gave me the impression of being built not of wood, but polished and lacquered PVC. Buttons knob seemed to me out of a Kinder egg - their operation gives an impression of lightness in the bad sense of the word. Assemblies microphones do not make me rave. In short, at first when I grabbed her, I found that the building was not up to the price.

One thing to clarify: This guitar has a tremolo that has a big letter "Bigsby" below which is written in small letters "licensed." The vibrato is not made by Bigsby but another workshop who pays a fee to use the brand for the concept and the name. This is not necessarily a derogatory remark, this is quite short notice. Everyone will judge.


The handle is what I found less disappointing on a guitar of this price, except varnish seems present propensities to obtain a tacky surface after prolonged use.

Access to acute ... this is not a SG or my Vox SDC 55! but I will not talk too much, I'm not a subscriber unconditional last frets.

The guitar is bulky but light, pleasant.

It is easy to get a sound. As to whether he is really good ... I have yet had in hands connected to a VOX AC15 HW1 does not seem to me to be a "crap".

The repeated use of the "Bigsby" in slight tension by 1/2 ton (and not de-tension, which puts less strain agreement) did not in my opinion the guitar to be received test "tuning stability". But I understand that it is a judgment may be too fast: there may be circumstances in which the best systems do not stand completely positive test (make ropes, mounting, ambient temperature, etc.)


On the first issue of his, despite the pleasure had my hand to go the nice run, I understood that I was playing a guitar trying to be nice ("nice from afar, but far from nice "!) and efforts were being made to sound like a real Gretsch without success.

The sounds are not bad, but for the amount paid, I think we can be better in other brands. So I keep to describe: it seems irrelevant.


I had this in hand electromatic half a day. I know ... It is not long ... From the first ten minutes, I was determined: it was not "it" ...

This review is very subjective, not looking down the glowing review that I read regularly. Because the subjective judgment of an instrument there are many questionable and therefore not rational factors. Subjective also because it reflects what I personally expect an instrument and some 800 euros. This amount is not the one corresponding to a premium instrument gammme, I agree. But ask someone who is struggling to make ends meet month if it is a small amount! With a guitar of this price, you should have the money. I have not had that feeling.

What I liked most about this guitar? Gretsch concept (overall volume, Bigsby, handle, microphones, design, etc.) the name ...

What I like least? Nothing in its implementation and it "gives" has seemed up to the concept that I love.

I judge the quality / price ratio unfavorable.

With experience, I would do the easy choice to never buy one! :-))

I do not want those who read think I'd like guitars more than 3000 euros and I always go down the seconds brands or business models reputable manufacturers. To support my argument, I will say that I have a model of the economic Paul (a "Studio") I would say the greatest good here when I have time. My negative about this "Electromatic" judgment is based essentially all along that critical on its quality / price ratio.

Perhaps, after all, am I stumbled upon a bad copy of a generally commendable instrument? ... and I wish those who love this guitar to continue to enjoy with it.
