What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Adjusto-Matic bridge Flawless intonation across all strings
Black Top Filter'Tron pickups Tight, bright and focused vintage tone
5-ply maple body Sweetly resonant tone with strong, smooth highs
Bigsby vibrato tailpiece Classic top-mount vibrato adds resonant mass

Hot Rodded Hollowbody Twang

A hollowbody hotrod fitted with all the tools for rocking and swinging sounds, the Gretsch G5420T comes ready to roll. Plug in and hear how its pair of "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups deliver that bright twang you thought was only found south of the Mason-Dixon.

Hollow Construction Rings True

Built from 5-ply maple in a hollow body style, you'll hear the natural resonance of the G5420T before it ever touches a cable plug. The hollow design is lightweight and features a carved back, giving relief to guitarists who log lengthy gigs. The maple neck is cut a bit on the thicker side for players who like a chunkier feel.

Pickups Add Punch to Tone

The G5420T's "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups are a throwback to the pickups featured on Baldwin-era Gretsch guitars in the '70s. These updated models give the guitar a bright, punchy sound to help your chicken-picked runs ring true. Twang and jangle are the guitar's specialty, but rolling down the master tone knob cuts out the treble to mellow the sound. If you're more of a rebel outlaw than country gentleman, the Filter'Tron pickups respond well to overdrive, making for a crisp attack on the bridge pickup and full-bodied blues tones in the neck position.

Classic Hardware with Modern Improvements

The G5420T comes equipped with a Bigsby-licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece positioned for easy access near your picking hand. The tailpiece is complimented by an Adjusto-Matic bridge, which can rock slightly along with the Bigsby to help reduce string friction. The bridge also allows for adjustments to be made to each string's intonation, so you can set up your guitar to play just right. The vintage style open-back tuners complete the classic look of the hardware set.

Features:

- 5-ply maple hollow body in single cutaway style
- Gloss urethane finish
- Maple neck with rosewood fretboard
- "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups in bridge and neck position
- 3-position pickup switching
- Individual neck and bridge pickup volume, master volume, and master tone controls
- Bigsby-licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece
- Rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge
- Open-backed tuners
- Binding around top and back of body and f-holes

Sweet as southern tea or played with bite like bourbon, the Gretsch G5420T rings true with bright and clear tones.

Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Hollowbody

The Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Hollow Body is a sharp guitar with a bound single-cutaway hollow body, featuring sound-post bracing and elegant bound f-holes. Other features include a maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and hump-block pearloid inlays, silver plexi pickguard, three-position pickup switch, classic "G" arrow control knobs, rosewood-based 'Adjusto-Matic' bridge and Bigsby-licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece, vintage-style open-back tuners and chrome-plated hardware. Available in Black, Orange, Sunburst and Aspen Green.

When the Gretsch R&D team recently unearthed a Baldwin-era Filter'Tron pickup with knockout punch and phenomenal twang, they incorporated its DNA into dynamic "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups, which now endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5420T with an electrifying voice and identity.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (22 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gretsch Electromatic G5420T Sunburst"
Overall: I've wanted a Gretsch ever since I saw Mike Nesmith playing them on The Monkees when I was a kid and then when I got older and got into the Rev. Horton Heat and last week thanks to zZounds great pay as you play plan I finally got one. The finish is absolutely flawless. The neck chunky but I like that. I do wish they would have kept the original Gretsch inlay on the fretboard but that is just a personal preference. The guitar definitely needed setup when I got it. The action and intonation were way off but again no big deal. I was able to fix that. When plugged in this thing sound absolutely amazing. The Baldwin blacktop filtertrons sound really jangly and bright and clear. I can't say how they compare with other models or TV Jones pickups but it definitely has that Gretsch sound. I really wanted that Gretsch G5422TDC double cutaway in snow crest white but I wasn't sure if zZounds would ever get any in so I went ahead and got this one instead. I am definitely not disappointed.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gretsch Electromatic Hollowbody"
Overall: I have ordered numerous items from Zzounds and have never had any problems with their products. My new Gretsch also falls into the category of another excellent item bought from Zzounds. It is an absolutely beautiful guitar and right out of the box this beauty was ready rock or ready to roll. Even my wife, who as others out there may have asked, don't you have enough guitars already? When she saw the Gretsch, she said oh, now that is a pretty guitar! Being the frugal customer I try to be, I had been looking at these guitars for a while and saw the best price I'd seen come up on Zzounds and knew it was time to pull the trigger. I am quite happy I did, this thing is sweet!
