Inspired by the golden era Gretsch’s of the ’50s and ’60s, the Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Classic Hollow Body Single-Cut delivers a pleasantly familiar sonic palette and a comfortable feel that’ll make longstanding Gretsch fans feel right at home. Don’t be fooled by its classic design, though – this beauty boasts several exciting new upgrades, making it a true modern performer.
Crafted with a laminated maple body and shaped with vintage-inspired perimeters and arches, the G5420T is undeniably classy. Its all-new trestle block bracing serves two functions: it dramatically reduces unwanted noise and feedback, and it adds attack, snap, and sustain to your playing by increasing contact between the top and back of the body. Gretsch veterans will approve of the updated Classic “C” shaped maple neck that feels familiar in hand, but makes it easier to pull off dexterous solos and rapid chord changes.
The G5420T Electromatic Classic comes equipped with two FT-5E FilterTron humbuckers that complement its natural, full-bodied resonance wonderfully. These humbuckers can dial in a tone for any performance setting, thanks to the updated control layout that includes a Master volume with a treble bleed circuit, a master tone, individual pickup volume controls, and a three-position pickup toggle switch. Whether you need a thick, rich warmth for mellow jazz standards or a snarling, searing growl for rock ‘n’ roll classics, the G5420T is more than capable of delivering the goods.
Gretsch’s G5420T Electromatic Classic Hollow Body Single-Cut takes an already great guitar and makes it even better. Trimmed out with vintage-style open-back tuning machines, a secured Adjusto-Matic bridge, and a Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece, the G5420T is an excellent choice for players looking to add an exceptional vintage-inspired hollow body to their collection.
