Looking for a good electric 12-string that won't set you back several paychecks? This is your guy.


The G5422G12 Electromatic Hollow Body 12-String sparkles with the full and distinctively chiming sound that only comes from a 12-string. The two “Black Top” Filter’Tron pickups have plenty of presence and full, powerful tone (less piercing than some other popular electric 12-strings).


The bound double-cutaway hollow body features sound-post bracing and elegant bound F-holes. Other features include a maple neck; bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and hump-block pearloid inlays; gold plexi pickguard; three-position pickup switch; classic “G” arrow control knobs; rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and "G" Cutout Tailpiece; vintage-style open-back tuners and elegant gold-plated hardware.

Why We Like Gretsch Electromatic Guitars

The Gretsch Electromatic nameplate has been around for many years. Now, it signifies the company’s value line of guitars built in Korea. The guitars are very well made, the electronics and pickups are really good and quality control is excellent (we’ve had several players say these are better-made guitars than some of the old NY-made instruments). In short, we’re happy to recommend these great-looking, vibey, very affordable Gretsch guitars.


We really like Gretsch’s classic looks and distinctive tone. With the Electromatic’s recent improvements, including “Black Top” Filter’Tron pickups and the addition of new center-block models, you can’t find a better, more economical way to get “that great Gretsch sound.”
