The G5420T is lively and resonant due to its completely hollow body, resulting in an enormous punch and clear, strong presence with the Filter'Tron voice. Like all Electromatic guitars, it delivers the authenticity that has distinguished Gretsch from the very beginning as the quintessential rock 'n' roll guitars. It is crafted with essential Gretsch style and playability and produces a dynamic and articulate sound.
Premium features include the dual Black Top Filter'Tron humbucking pickups, versatile modern controls including master volume with treble bleed circuit. The appearance is unique due to the oversized bonded F-holes, the vintage multi-ply body binding, smaller late-50s G6120 bound headstock, Graph Tech NuBone nut, pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail fingerboard inlays and a Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece.
