Music Store Live is proud to present this Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Hollow Body! Gad Zooks! When I say that this guitar is capable of some serious tone, please please please take me at my word. This guitar has a seriously fat and clear sound that, when pushed or given a little grit, sounds like a honky tonking caged animal that's just been let loose. The playability is quite nice. The neck is smooth, comfortable and full feeling without being too fat. The pickups are brilliant sounding and the body feels wonderful played sitting down or standing. This G5420T delivers a wonderful playing experience.
This 5420T is a finished in Gretsch's classic and distinctive Orange finish. The 5 ply maple hollow body features a single cutaway and a gloss urethane finish. The body is braced with a sound post and measures 2.75" deep. The maple neck features a full feeling profile to it - a combination of a D and U shape. The bound rosewood fretboard has hump-block inlays, a 1.687" nut width and a 24.5" scale length. The "Black Top" Filter Tron pickups are contributing in a big way to the stellar tone of this axe. They provide vocal-like clarity, twang and maximum impact for all of your comping and soloing needs. Other fine features include multiple body binding on the top and back, a silver plexi pickguard and a Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece.
