Used (2013) Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Hollowbody in Aspen Green with Bigsby and Hardshell Case

$ 599.99

A used G5420T in excellent condition, body is very clean showing no real signs of pick swirling or dings. The back does have some small, surface-level scratches likely from a belt buckle. Neck is in excellent shape, and plays with comfortable, low action. The neck does show a small ding on the side of the headstock, but it is out of the way of the neck and does not cause any playability issues. Frets are in very good shape, only showing a slight diveting but it hardly noticeable while playing. Checked by our-in house technician for playability and electronic function. Comes with a hardshell case, included in pictures.

No nonsense, Electromatic hollowbody 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 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 a Bigsby® B60 vibrato tailpiece.
