When the Gretsch® R&D team recently unearthed a Baldwin-era Filter’Tron pickup with knockout punch and phenomenal twang, they incorporated its DNA into the dynamic “Black Top” Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups, which endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5420T with an electrifying new voice and sonic identity.
The G5420T Electromatic® Hollow Body is a sharp-looking Gretsch guitar with a bound single-cutaway hollow body featuring sound post bracing and elegantly 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.
