2020 Gretsch 5420T Electromatic


Recently taken in on trade is this Gretsch 5420T Electromatic in Metallic Blue, only a few years young.

This guitar is in excellent shape with only minor signs of play wear to be seen. It will ship set-up and ready to rock!

"The G5420T Electromatic® Classic Hollow Body Single-Cut with Bigsby® features a laminated maple body with vintage-inspired perimeters and refined arches, as well as all-new trestle block bracing to help reduce unwanted feedback. By increasing rigidity and contact between the top and back of the body, the new trestle block design also results in the sound having a faster attack with more focus, snap, and increased sustain. Coupled with all-new FT-5E FilterTron pickups, this hollow build's voice explodes with huge full-bodied punch, classic chime and enhanced presence, clarity and note definition.

An all-new Classic C-shaped maple neck offers a more comfortable playing feel for improved playability and performance, and is topped with a 12-radius laurel fingerboard.

Alive and resonant, the G5420T also features a versatile upgraded control layout including master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone, individual pickup volume controls and three-position pickup toggle switch, oversized bound F-holes, multi-ply body binding, smaller late-’50s G6120 bound headstock, vintage-style open-back tuning machines, Graph Tech® NuBone® nut, pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays, secured Adjusto-Matic bridge and a Bigsby® B60 vibrato tailpiece.

It's the sound of honor itself - play proud."
