Boasting thundering twang, the G5420TG Limited Edition Electromatic[reg] '50s Hollow Body Single-Cut with Bigsby[reg] pays homage to the cherished Gretsch hollow bodies of the mid-1950s. The arched maple top features sound post bracing and oversized F-holes for renowned acoustic breadth, while the maple neck with rosewood fingerboard lets you fly through classic licks with ease.

Dual Black Top Filter'Tron pickups create a thundering, versatile sonic palette that can take you through a catalog of classic jazz, blues and rock 'n roll tones. Authentic sounds are at your fingertips with a flexible control layout consisting of a three-position pickup toggle switch, master volume with treble bleed circuit, master tone, bridge and neck pickup volume controls.

Add the classic Orange Stain finish, early-'50s enlarged headstock, pearloid Hump Block inlays, tortoise pickguard with matching pickup inserts and gold hardware, plus other fine features including a secured Adjusto-Matic[trade] bridge, Graph Tech[reg] NuBone[reg] nut, G-arrow knobs and Bigsby[reg] B60G tailpiece for a hollow body that serves up classic twang and thump like no other.
