The Gretsch G5420TG Limited Edition Electromatic Hollowbody Guitar with Bigsby in Candy Apple Red provides a sumptuous model that is a joy for any guitarist. Whether you're a session musician or a regular on the gigging circuit, the G5420TG is equipped with everything you could want in a classic rock 'n' roll powerhouse.

Breath-taking hollowbody

The Electromatic hollowbody models have stood out from the crowd since their introduction, and the latest model to grace their stable is another belter. Singing from the same hymn sheet, the G5420TG produces a heavenly timbre that's the stuff dreams are made of. The classic chambered design is paired with 5-ply maple, which resonates with gusto to create a sparkling, confident response. A pair of over-sized f-holes adorn the top, allowing the acoustic timbre of the guitar to sing forth. However, thanks to some clever design within, you can be sure that when you give this beauty a push, it will roar without being drowned out by unwanted feedback.

The body has been treated to a visually stunning candy apple red, which is coupled with a gold plexi pickguard that features a vintage Gretsch logo in black. The paintwork has been treated to a slender layer of protective gloss, preventing unwanted premature degradation to allow it to age gracefully.

Durable maple neck

Fitted to the body is a durable and responsive maple neck, which is shaped to the snug-fitting "U"-shape profile. Paired with the neck is a 22 medium-jumbo fret rosewood fingerboard, which is decorated with pearloid neo-classic thumbnail position inlays. The neck and fingerboard partnership creates a substantial feeling in the hand without becoming cumbersome or unwieldy.

Powerful Black Top Filter'Tron pickups

The G5420TG is equipped with a pair of Black Top Filter'Tron humbucking pickups, which deliver that classic rock 'n' roll bite with masses of power. The control layout consists of an individual neck and bridge volume knobs, a master volume knob with treble-bleed circuit, and a master tone knob. Sculpting and shaping your tone can be done with immense precision, and you'll find that pretty much whatever style of music you play, the chameleon-like G5420TG can adapt to any musical style.

Gig-ready hardware

At the top of the neck you'll find the larger early-'50s G6120 bound headstock, which is home to gold-finished vintage-style open-back tuning machines. The body is fitted with an adjusto-matic bridge with secured rosewood base, which is paired with a Bigsby-Licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece. The bridge/tailpiece partnership establishes a solid foundation for optimising intonation and sustain, whilst offering peerless vibrato control.
