With a big, bold vintage-inspired hollow body sound, the G5420TG Electromatic '50s is an ultra-cool Limited Edition Gretsch. The guitar's arched maple top, oversized f-holes, sound-post bracing, and a big Electromatic hollow body, you get plenty of projection and sustain with a rock-solid in-hand feel. This comfort extends up the neck, which is made of maple with a standard "U" profile and set-neck construction, plus 22 medium jumbo frets and pearloid hump block inlays for a little visual flair. And thanks to a fantastic set of Black Top Filter'Tron pickups, you get versatile tone that's great for everything from jazz to rock and anywhere in between. Top everything off with a Bigsby B60 tailpiece, and you get a guitar with unmistakably vintage style, playability, and tone.

Why We Love Gretsch
Gretsch has been handcrafting guitars for over 135 years. The unique sound of the Gretsch semi-hollow body guitar has become synonymous with rockabilly music, one of the first styles of rock ‘n roll. Gretsch guitars are a favorite among musicians like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer and George Harrison. At Cream City Music, we love Gretsch too, which is why we always have a huge selection of new, used and vintage Gretsch guitars in stock.
