The Gretsch R&D team recently unearthed a Baldwin-era Filter’Tron pickup replete with knockout punch and phenomenal twang. Impressed, they decided to incorporate its DNA into the dynamic new “Black Top” Filter’Tron pickups, endowing Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as this G5420T with an electrifying new voice. The G5420T Electromatic Hollow Body is a sharp, new Gretsch 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. Orange you glad you selected this guitar for a modern innovative take on a classic!
