What we say:

Gretsch guitars have been the iconoclastic rock star’s choice for over 60 years. These beautiful works of art have a look and feel all of their own and whether you choose a Professional Series model, an Electromatic or a Streamliner, you can be sure you are getting that ‘Great Gretsch Sound’.

The Electromatic range is an accessible way to get that inimitable Gretsch style, feel and tone. Made with all of the details and dimensions that make Gretsch what they are, Electromatics are rightfully seen across the planet in the arms of style-conscious tone-hounds who want to make an impression sonically and visually.

This gorgeous G5420 in Fairlane Blue has a great late 50s Gretsch vibe with's it's 4 ply body binding and 'neoclassical' thumbnail fretboard markers. The Bound headstock also contributes to the late 50s look: pure Gretsch class!

A pair of black Filter'Tron humbuckers give out a moderately hot vintage twang with a little chunk in there too. A Bigsby tremolo finishes this guitar off beautifully!


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 a Bigsby® B60 vibrato tailpiece.
