Authentically Rock ‘N’ Roll
With the G5420TG, Gretsch have delivered a truly special guitar.
5-ply maple has been used to craft the hollow-body, with a single-cut which allows for easier reach of the higher frets; perfect for those adventurous scales and arpeggios or ripping out a nice solo on the fly.
The “U” shaped Maple neck is comfortable, easy to play and features a classic Rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets which themselves feature those favourite Pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail position inlays while over-sized, bound F holes complete the vintage Gretsch look and sound.
Another great feature of the limited edition Black Gretsch G5420T is the early ‘50s style headstock; bound and beautiful with that true vintage flavour.
Black Top Filter’Tron Humbuckers with Upgraded Controls
Dual Filter-Tron humbucking pickups, working together with that classic hollow-body build truly deliver that great Gretsch sound; bold, dynamic and articulate with huge punch and clear, strong presence.
Upgraded, versatile controls on this edition give you a master volume treble-bleed circuit in addition to the standard pickup volume knobs, master tone and three-way pickup toggle switch, allowing you to really tailor your sonic presence to your preference.
Gold Plated Hardware with Bigsby Vibrato Tailpiece
Adding that extra touch of class to the Gretsch G5420TG is the eye-catchingly beautiful gold-plated hardware that shows up fantastically against the gloss Black finish.
Vintage-style open-back tuning machines allow for speedy, precise and stable tuning while adding that old school flair with a Graph Tech NuBone nut in place at the top of the fretboard.
Gretsch have installed an Adjusto-Matic bridge with a secured Rosewood base, allowing for fantastic transfer of string vibration to the resonant body of the G5420TG.
Last but not least, of course, is the Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece, allowing for fantastic tremolo effect while keeping your strings perfectly in tune.
Bigsby tailpieces are pretty much synonymous with Gretsch guitars, and seen here with glorious gold plating, never has a Bigsby tremolo looked better.
Giving you that incredible Gretsch sound and beautifully vintage Gretsch style, the Gretsch Electromatic G5420TG Limited Edition in Black is a guitar you will surely cherish.
