Limited-edition Vintage Hollowbody from Gretsch

The G5420TG Limited Edition Electromatic from Gretsch is yet another built-for-tone hollowbody from the company that has been bringing no-nonsense design and detailed appointments to their storied line of guitars for decades. Featuring a 5-ply maple body with a sleek gloss finish, the G5420TG is resonant and stage-ready. Its maple neck with rosewood fingerboard is responsive and playable — great for chords or leads. To deliver the tone, a pair of Black Top Filter’Tron humbuckers delivers classic humbucking goodness, while an Adjusto-matic bridge with a Bigsby B60 provides incredible sustain and tone support.

Bright and spanky Black Top Filter’Tron pickups

Gretsch uncovered a set of Baldwin-era Filter’Tron pickups with incredible punch and twang — perfect for the G5420TG Electromatic Single-cut. They reverse-engineered those special pickups to create the set of “Black Top” Filter’Tron humbucking pickups that you’ll find loaded in this G5420TG. With their robust character and trademark cut, Black Top Filter’Trons keep you ready for everything from rockabilly and country to blues and classic rock. The Gretsch G5420TG even makes a legit jazz box.

Exceptionally flexible electronics

The Gretsch G5420TG Electromatic allows you to pull off a lot of tonal tricks. Volume controls for each pickup help you create a perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you’ve got the pickups dialed in. And of course, you’ll elicit sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually.

Smooth vibrato action

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that the Bigsby tailpiece adds to the G5420TG Electromatic. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, the Bigsby Licensed B60 tailpiece requires next to no effort to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends. You’ll be able to bend into notes, give full chords vintage-sounding modulation, and imbue single notes with a character that isn’t attainable with other setups.
