COMING OCTOBER 2019!
Boasting thundering twang, the G5420TG Limited Edition Electromatic ’50s Hollow Body Single-Cut with Bigsby pays homage to the cherished Gretsch hollow bodies of the mid-1950s.
The arched maple top features sound-post bracing and oversized F-holes for renowned acoustic breadth, while the maple neck with rosewood fingerboard lets you fly through classic licks with ease.
Dual Black Top Filter’Tron pickups create a thundering, versatile sonic palette that can take you through a catalog of classic jazz, blues and rock ‘n’ roll tones. Authentic sounds are at your fingertips with a flexible control layout consisting of master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone, bridge and neck pickup volume controls and three-position pickup toggle switch.
Add the classic Black finish, early-’50s enlarged headstock, pearloid Hump Block inlays, tortoise pickguard with matching pickup inserts and gold hardware, plus other fine features including a secured Adjusto-Matic bridge, Graph Tech NuBone nut, G-arrow knobs and Bigsby B60 tailpiece for a hollow body that serves up classic twang and thump like no other.
