The Gretsch Electromatic models are exceptional instruments for the money. Taking strong cues from Gretsch’s 6120 ‘Pro’ level guitars, these high-quality tools are completely ready for use at a gig or recording.
The G5122DC model is closer to the G6122II, an updated version of the 6122 Country Gentleman. The neck joint on this guitar starts at the 15th fret rather than the 12th, making the upper registers much more accessible.
This guitar is in almost new condition – hardly a mark to be seen. It has been set up nicely and plays well in all areas of the fretboard. The wider, flatter fingerboard is very easy to make complex chords and fingerpick if that’s your thing.
A bonus is the Gretsch hard shell case with two latches missing but otherwise in good condition.
