Gretsch 5422 Electromatic T, TDC, TDCG

Postby sgtpepperb4 » Tue Feb 19, 2013 8:42 am

Can someone PLEASE tell me what the difference between a Gretsch Electromatic 5422T, 5422TDC, & a 5422TDCG is besides the price. The specs, on every site I've seen, all are virtually the same with the exception of a $200 (U.S.) average in price. Choice of color varies in some cases.

I'm guessing, but no difference at all. My opinion is that the various websites are unaware of the proper name of the guitar or are trying to 'pull a flanker' in order to extract more money from punters.

Here's what I know:
5422T - Single cutaway with Tremelo bar
5422TDC - Double cutaway with Tremelo bar
5422TDCG - Double cutaway with Tremelo bar and gold plated hardware

Not correct. I have a G5422T in my hands right now and it is a double cutaway with a Bigsby. If the previous poster was correct this would be a single cutaway. I do not know what the difference is on the spec with the different suffixes.

5422T and 5422TDC are the exact same guitar. Earlier versions simply did not have the "DC" designation in model number. 5422TDCG has gold hardware and the limited "Snow Crest White" finish... otherwise it's identical. It's up to you to decide if the cosmetic differences are worth the cost difference to you.
