As one of the bigger names in music, Gretsch is responsible for some of the most iconic electric guitar designs in the industry's history, such as the Electromatic and Duo-Jet. Their guitars have also been played by some of the biggest names in rock including George Harrison, Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Pete Townshend and several more. The G5420T continues Gretsch's legacy of awesome electrics!
About the G5420T
When the Gretsch R&D team recently unearthed a Baldwin-era Filter’Tron pickup with knockout punch and phenomenal twang, they incorporated its DNA into dynamic new “Black Top” Filter’Tron pickups, which now endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5420T with an electrifying new voice and identity.
The G5420T Electromatic Hollow Body is a sharp new Gretsch guitar with a bound single-cutaway hollow body featuring sound-post bracing and elegant bound f holes. Other features include a maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and hump-block pearloid inlays, silver plexi pickguard, three-position pickup switch, classic “G” arrow control knobs, rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and Bigsby-licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece, vintage-style open-back tuners and chrome-plated hardware. Available in Black, Orange, Sunburst and Aspen Green.
