What we say:
Gretsch’s Electromatic range bring you all of the style, sound, feel and vibe of top tier Gretsch guitars but at a more affordable price. Gretsch Electromatics are perfect for gigging guitarists who want to make a statement onstage and enjoy the unique Gretsch sensibility.
This G5420T is a full size, full thickness Gretsch with all of the expected visual glam of this most handsome of brands: this has the Bigsby tremolo, the wealth of binding on the body, f-holes & neck, logo’d control knobs, the ‘Neo-Classic’ thumb inlays and of course the overall size and design of the body which lends luxury and confidence to the instrument. It’s a looker! This model is available here in Candy Apple Red.
Aside from these cool visuals, you get a 12” radius fingerboard with Medium Jumbo frets for an easy playing experience. The neck is Gretsch’s standard U profile and 24.6” scale length.
Two Blacktop FIlter’Tron humbuckers supply the quintessential twang: these pickups may be humbuckers but they are specifically different sounding from regular humbucking pickups. You can get gnarly and raucous with these guys without any problem but you also enjoy the benefit of excellent clean tones to boot. The Bigsby offers all the retro shimmer and wobble that you’d expect.
Gretsch’s Electromatic guitars have been an excellent choice for a long time and this specific model bedazzles and charms equally.
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.
