Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Classic Hollow Body w/ Bigsby
The Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Classic Hollow Body Single-Cut with Bigsby features a laminated maple body. With vintage-inspired perimeters and refined arches, there’s also all-new trestle block bracing to help reduce unwanted feedback. By increasing rigidity and contact between the top and back of the body, the new trestle block design also results in the sound having a faster attack with more focus, snap, and increased sustain. Coupled with all-new FT-5E Filter’Tron™ pickups, this hollow build’s voice explodes with huge full-bodied punch, classic chime and enhanced presence, clarity and note definition.
An all-new Classic “C”-shaped maple neck offers a more comfortable playing feel for improved playability. And its performance is topped off with a 12”-radius laurel fingerboard.
Alive and resonant, the G5420T also features a versatile upgraded control layout. These include master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone, individual pickup volume controls and three-position pickup toggle switch. You’ll also find Gretsch goodness such as:
- oversized bound F-holes
- multi-ply body binding
- smaller late-’50s G6120 bound headstock
- vintage-style open-back tuning machines
- Graph Tech® NuBone® nut
- Pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail inlays
- A secured Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and a Bigsby® B60 vibrato tailpiece.
This resplendent instrument comes in standout Airline Silver with black pickguard or in Azure Metallic, Orange Stain and Walnut Stain with silver pickguard. All models also feature nickel hardware.
It’s the sound of honor itself, so play proud!
