Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Hollow Body Single Cutaway with Bigsby, Fairlane Blue

For players of rock, country and rockabilly alike, the G5420T stands out as a serious contender - powerful, articulate and resonant as all get out. 

The hollow maple body build offers up a beautiful, sonorous tone, while the passive Blacktop Filter'Tron humbuckers at the neck and bridge dole out a bold and punchy voicing. The maple "U" shape set-in neck is comfortable through and through, all the way up the 12" radiused rosewood fretboard. 

An Adjusto-matic bridge delivers great tone and intonation, while offering adjustment capability to individual string saddles. The Bigsby vibrato will rock with the movement of the strings, adding tuning stability and reducing friction. 


This guitar is in fantastic condition and has undergone a full setup and inspection from our in-house luthier. The neck is nice and straight, fits comfortably in the hand and shows incredibly minimal fretwear. Outside of a tiny ding in the Bigsby tailpiece, the face of this guitar is nearly perfect and shows almost no playwear.   Pickups have been swapped for TV Jones TV Classics, a welcome upgrade over the stock Blacktop Filtertrons.  The TV Classics provide a bright yet balanced sound with tons of characteristic snap and bite.
