This Gretsch G5422TG Hollowbody Electric Guitar is one of the top selling units of the recent Gretsch catalog - as it sports all of the classic design elements that modern players crave today. This particular unit is in EXCELLENT condition, and appears to be mostly clean of any signs of use. The main degree of wear is to the gold hardware, which shows typical aging and light corrosion to the gold-plating. This happens on nearly ever gold-plated hardware piece, on most every guitar. The original finish is clear of dings, dents, or scratches. The guitar looks nearly new, until closer inspection.
The frets are in great shape, and show little to no wear on 99% of the fretboard. There are 1 or 2 areas of minor flattening, but there is no pitting or damage the crowns. The action is low and comfortable, with no buzz. The guitar stays in tune rather well, and Bigsby floating vibrato operates very smoothly. The guitar is all-original, and sounds great with a big open tone, but with loads of clarity due to the re-designed Blacktop Filter'tron pickups. The original Gretsch hardshell case is included!
