FDP Forum / The Gretsch Forum / G5622T Electromatic w/Centerblock... Dang Weight!

Tried a gorgeous "Georgia Green" 5622 at a local shop yesterday. Loved everything about it except it's weight.

9.5lbs. The centerblock must be made out of solid ebony to weigh that much!

Thought I was playing a Les Paul.

I'd have bought the guitar had it weighed no more than 7.5 lbs, but at 71 I just ain't gonna sling a heavyweight anymore.


They make this model without the centerblock, but don't offer it in the "must-have" color of Georgia Green.
