GRETSCH® EXPANDS ELECTROMATIC® CENTER BLOCK LINEUP

Gretsch® expands its Electromatic® Collection Center Block lineup with the brand new G5622 Electromatic Center Block Double-Cut with V-Stoptail, as well as new finishes for the G5622T Electromatic® Center Block Double-Cut with Bigsby®.

Alive and loud, Electromatic® Center Block guitars are designed for that pure and powerful Gretsch sound at high volume. The G5622T and G5622 models feature a double-cutaway maple body with chambered spruce center block for dynamic resonance, high gain power and lightweight comfort.

Dual Black Top Broad’Tron™ humbucking pickups deliver chiming highs with dynamic and articulate tone for enhanced sonic punch. The instrument’s sonic power can be flexibly harnessed with a versatile control layout consisting of a master volume control with treble bleed circuit, master tone, individual pickup volume controls and three-position pickup toggle switch.

Other features include an anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge, Graph Tech® NuBone® nut and G-arrow knobs. The G5622T is equipped with a Bigsby® B70 vibrato tailpiece, while the G5622 comes with a V-Stoptail.

Painstakingly crafted with essential Gretsch sound, style and playability, the G5622T now comes in two new remarkable finishes —  Single Barrel Burst and Speyside — with gold pickguard, gold pickup bezels and nickel hardware, while the G5622 comes in Aged Walnut, Black Gold or Bristol Fog with nickel hardware. The Aged Walnut and Black Gold finishes feature a gold pickguard, while Bristol Fog comes with a black pickguard.
