OVERVIEW

Great Gretsch style and sound on a budget.

No nonsense, Electromatic hollow-body guitars are the perfect real, pure and powerful Gretsch instruments. They’re your next-step Gretsch—bold, dynamic and articulate, and crafted with essential Gretsch sound, style and playability.

Alive and resonant, the G5420TG has fully hollow build with a true Filter’Tron voice that explodes with huge punch and clear, strong presence. Like all Electromatic guitars, it delivers the fearless and electrifying authenticity that has set Gretsch apart as the quintessential rock ‘n’ roll guitars from the very beginning. It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud.

Premium features include:
Dual “Black Top” Filter’tron humbucking pickups
Gold hardware
Versatile upgraded controls including master volume treble-bleed circuit
Oversized bound F holes and aged multi-ply body binding
Smaller late-’50s G6120 bound headstock
Graph Tech NuBone nut
Pearloid Neo-Classic “thumbnail” fingerboard inlays
Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420T Electromatic Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

    The 5420T is the finest guitar I've ever played. Made from 5 layer laminate, the guitar has a better balance of feel over all other Gretsch models. This thing is a total beast. Absolutly so much sweetness, your Gretsch deserves a name. Give it one and never change it.

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420T Electromatic Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

          This is the most beautiful guitar I've owned which includes Gibson & Fender. Came pretty much set up out right of the box. The neck reminds me of my old '69 Gibson SG. Fun to hold and fun to play. Can't put it down.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The customer service was tremendous. I ordered it on Monday and was playing it Thursday.
