35 years of Classic Gretsch™ Tone
In celebration of 135 years of “That Great Gretsch Sound™”, we proudly present the G5420TG Electromatic™ 135th Anniversary LTD Hollow Body Single-Cut with Bigsby® guitar.
Like our prized G6118 Anniversary™ models, the G5420TG features a 16-inch maple hollow body for the full, “big body” resonance that made Gretsch famous. Coupled with our Black Top Filter’Tron™ pickups, this guitar captures that powerfully pristine Gretsch hollow body tone.
Tone and style collide with a 2-Tone Dark Cherry Metallic over Casino Gold finish with matching pickguard, pickup bezels and lustrous gold hardware. Additional features include a maple neck, 12″-radius compressed ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, aged pearloid Neo-Classic™ “thumbnail” inlays and matching mother of pearl Gretsch headstock logo.
The G5420TG also features gold G-Arrow control knobs and hardware, gold pickguard and a gold Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with pinned compressed ebony base topped off with a gleaming Bigsby™ B60 tailpiece.
The G5420TG will be produced in 2018 only.
