1 yoshiii1 6 months ago Hello want to buy a Gretsch, need help.I am choosing between Japanese Gretsches or Electromatics.The kind of music I will use it for is rock and Rockabilly, Brian Setzer type.So probably will buy a full hollow and semi with a block.Are the 5420’s, 5422’s and 5622’s good?How close are the pickups to Filter Trons and TV Jones?Would I need to change out the electronics?What’s the differences between the Japanese Gretsches and the newer Electromatics?I am interested in the Electromatics.There is a Japanese 6119HT single cut away used I can get for 1100 dollars. Not sure of the year. Doesn’t have the mute. It has that weird round bridge.What would be a good buy, that or a thin line 5422?Buy Electromatics? Or save up for a used or new Japanese Gretsch?
