Classic Gretsch Tone in an Affordable Hollowbody
Treat yourself and audiences to decades of delectable Gretsch tone with the G5420T Electromatic Classic Hollowbody Single-cut Electric Guitar. Incredibly affordable yet loaded with professional features, the G5420T Electromatic boasts vintage-voiced FT-5E Filter'Tron humbucking pickups, an Adjusto-matic bridge, and a Bigsby B60 vibrato for the subtle pitch modulation that has become synonymous with Gretsch. A 3-way pickup switch and four controls — including a master volume equipped with a treble-bleed circuit for chimey highs at all volumes — ensure you'll have no problem conjuring the legendary tones the G5420T Electromatic was built for.
When you want that classic '50s-era archtop guitar tone, you need real Gretsch humbuckers. That's why Gretsch outfitted the G5420T Electromatic with a pair of FT-5E Filter'Tron pickups. Unlike most humbuckers, these traditional Gretsch pickups yield a characteristically bright and open sound that's jangly on your highs with added single-coil-esque bite. With their robust character and trademark cut, the Gretsch FT-5E Filter'Tron humbuckers keep you ready for everything from rockabilly and country to blues and classic rock.
Exceptionally flexible electronics
The G5420T Electromatic allows you to pull off a lot of tonal tricks. Volume controls for each pickup help you create a perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you've got the pickups dialed in. Thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. And of course, you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually.
Redesigned trestle-block bracing
Traditionally, trestle-braced guitars feature two U-shaped braces that run parallel from the neck joint to the bridge, simultaneously bracing the top and the back. This pattern enhances sustain and resonance but falls victim to feedback. Now, Gretsch unveils a new trestle block bracing design that enhances the performance of the fan-favorite trestle bracing pattern. Trestle-block bracing facilitates more contact between the top and back while adding extra stiffness to the traditional design. Trestle-block bracing flaunts a quick, snappy attack, more sustain, and greater resonance — all without the dreaded hollowbody feedback.
Smooth vibrato action
Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that the Bigsby-style tailpiece adds to the G5420T Electromatic. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, the B60 vibrato requires next to no effort to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends. You'll be able to bend into notes, give full chords vintage-sounding modulation, and imbue single notes with a character that isn't attainable through other setups. Guitarists agree: a vibrato like this is critical when channeling that coveted Gretsch sound.
