The Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Classic Hollow Body Single-Cut: Vintage Sound and Style

Experience the iconic sound and style of the ‘50s and ‘60s with the all-new G5420T Electromatic Classic Hollow Body Single-Cut with Bigsby. Crafted to embody the essence of Gretsch hollow-body guitars, this instrument offers timeless sound, style, and playability that resonates with classic enthusiasts and modern players alike. It's your next-step Gretsch, delivering the quintessential hollow-body experience with no-nonsense design.

Vintage-Inspired Design and Sonic Performance

The G5420T features a laminated maple body with vintage-inspired perimeters and refined arches, delivering classic aesthetics with modern reliability. Enhanced with all-new trestle block bracing, this hollow build offers reduced feedback and increased sustain. The result is a sound that's bold, punchy, and full-bodied, with enhanced presence, clarity, and note definition, thanks to the FT-5E Filter’Tron™ pickups.

Comfortable Playability and Versatile Controls

A Classic “C”-shaped maple neck with a laurel fingerboard offers a comfortable playing feel and improved performance. The versatile upgraded control layout includes master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone, individual pickup volume controls, and a three-position pickup toggle switch, providing intuitive control over your tone and pickup settings.

Exquisite Craftsmanship and Finishing

This resplendent instrument is adorned with oversized bound F-holes, multi-ply body binding, a smaller late-'50s G6120 bound headstock, vintage-style open-back tuning machines, and a Bigsby® B60 vibrato tailpiece. Finished in standout Airline Silver with a black pickguard and nickel hardware, the G5420T exudes vintage elegance and modern sophistication, making it a standout addition to any player's collection.
