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 G5420T Electromatic Single-Cut with Bigsby® 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, 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 and Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420T Electromatic Electric Guitar with Bigsby:

    I just got my Electromatic Bigsby Red Sparkle yesterday. It sounds great, plays good and looks fantastic. Great jazz tones and if you use it with the overdrive cranked up it has a great crunchy tone. When I saw this I new I had to have one. It is an absolutely gorgeous guitar!
