The Gretsch G5420TG in Snow Crest White is a Long & McQuade Exclusive!

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 G5420TG 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.

Premium features include:
• Dual "Black Top" Filter'tron humbucking pickups
• Gold hardware
• Versatile upgraded controls including master volume treble-bleed circuit
• Oversized bound F holes and aged multi-ply body binding
• Smaller late-'50s G6120 bound headstock

Ordered my Gretsch from L&M online, when I got it was near perfectly set up, low action with no buzzing. Threw a new set of strings on it and it was ready to go. This Guitar looks, plays, and sounds outstanding. People think Gretsches are just for country picking, but it can do it all. Cleans are beautiful and chimy, and those filtertrons will roar and growl with distortion in a way nothing else quite compares to. The white finish is flawless, and looks gorgeous with the polished gold hardware, just as good as a falcon that costs twice as much. Give one a try!
