Gretsch G5420T Electromatic Single Cutaway Hollow Body Electric Guitar with Bigsby – Aspen Green

The G5420T Electromatic Single Cutaway Hollow Body infuses the company’s famous glassy punch into a moderately-priced model made to hit the stage. Built with a five-ply maple body and U-shape neck, the G5420T nails the pristine mids and highs these models are known for with a pair of Black Top Filter’Tron pickups that growl and sing in equal measure. Popularized by the likes of Brian Setzer, these are ideal instruments for country and rockabilly.

No nonsense, Electromatic hollow-body guitars are the perfect real, pure and powerful Gretsch instruments. They’re your next-step Gretsch—bold, dynamic and articulate, and crafted with essential Gretsch sound, style and playability.

Alive and resonant, the G5420T has fully hollow build with a true Filter’Tron voice that explodes with huge punch and clear, strong presence. Like all Electromatic guitars, it delivers the fearless and electrifying authenticity that has set Gretsch apart as the quintessential rock ‘n’ roll guitars from the very beginning. It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud.

Brand

Gretsch

For more than 100 years Gretsch has developed what came to be known as "That Great Gretsch Sound," but it all began with a young German immigrant in Brooklyn. Gretsch is an American company that manufactures guitars, basses and drums. The company was founded in 1883 in Brooklyn, New York by Friedrich Gretsch, a 27-year-old German immigrant, shortly after his arrival to the United States. Friedrich Gretsch manufactured banjos, tambourines, and drums until his death in 1895. In 1916, his son, Fred Gretsch Sr. moved operations to a larger facility where Gretsch went on to become one of the most prominent manufacturers of American musical instruments.
