Boasting thundering twang.

The Gretsch Limited-Edition G5420TG pays tribute to the cherished hollowbody guitars that first set the rock, country and rockabilly worlds on fire.

This single cutaway stunner features an arched maple top with oversized F-holes for acoustic breadth; a maple neck with rosewood fingerboard lets you fly through licks with ease. The enlarged period-correct headstock and pearloid Hump Block inlays add more flash.

Gretsch loads the G5420TG with a set of Black Top Filter’Tron pickups for a catalog of classic tones. You'll find lots of sonic flexibility with the three-way toggle, master volume and tone controls, plus individual volume knobs for the bridge and neck pickups. A treble bleed circuit lets the highs come through even at lower volumes.

The gold hardware looks regal under stage lights. Work the Bigsby B60 soft for subtle surf-style vibrato, or wild for reckless rockabilly rave-ups. Keep your tuning in check all night long with vintage-style open-back tuners, Graph Tech NuBone nut and a secured Adjusto-matic bridge. A case is sold separately.

Stand up and stand out. Order today.
