The new Gretsch G5420T electromatic electric guitar in a fantastic silver sparkle finish, is an outstanding example of Gretsch's ability to craft exquisite guitars that look as amazing as they sound. Not only that but this particular model is limited to a limited run of only 250 models bound for Europe, making them a fantastic edition to anyone's collection.

The bound single-cutaway hollow body generates awesome amounts of low to mid-end energy, helping to create wondrous amounts of natural sustain. The sound-post bracing works excellently with the elegantly bound f-holes to ensure a smooth linear response across with a robust, full-bodied tone. The body is protected by a resilient coating of gloss polyurethane, which works hard to reduce the impact of wear and tear on the stunning silver sparkle finish.

The slender maple neck assures a supportive and reassuring feel whilst playing. The bound rosewood fingerboard creates a confident playing surface on which to flex your creative muscles. The fingerboard is a string bender's dream, allowing smooth bends to be executed with the greatest of ease, whilst reducing the chance of note drop-off. The cutaway design offers greater access to the upper frets so that the entire fingerboard is yours to play with as you please.

The neck and fingerboard partnership works consistently to deliver a "tight"-sounding articulation in every note. The generous 24.5" scale length for the strings to resonate along, improving the overall sustain significantly.

Two BlackTop Filter'Tron humbuckers at the neck and bridge position give the G5420T a deliciously "fat" sound. At the neck position, sparkling lead/rhythm tones can be plucked out with the greatest of ease. The bridge pickup gives a nice, thumping rumble, that is great for chunky blues and rock licks. Flick the 3-way pickup selector switch to the centre position to combine a bit of both pickups for a swelling, mid-laden tone.

Fitted to the G5420T is a secured rosewood-based adjusto-matic bridge with a Bigsby licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece, offering an unbelievable level of creative control over your tone. Personal inflections can be squeezed into every single note, giving you complete mastery over your tone.

The G5420T Electromatic FSR electric guitar is an awesome guitar that deserves to be played with the utmost respect. Being part of such a short run will only serve to make it even more of a treasure over time.

Posted on 11/03/2016 by Matt66 This guitar looks great, the new Baldwin type Filtertrons are nice sounding, a cross between a Filtertron and Dynasonic pickup. Nice build quality and easy to play.
lovely guitar, a pleasure to play
