Celebrating a remarkable 140 years in the music industry, Gretsch introduces the Limited Edition G5420T-140 Electromatic Hollow Body Guitar. A true embodiment of Gretsch’s rich heritage, this masterpiece seamlessly blends the brand’s timeless essence with contemporary design, creating an unparalleled instrument for the discerning guitarist.
At the heart of the G5420T-140 lies a laminated maple body. Its vintage contours and sophisticated arches, combined with the innovative trestle block bracing, not only give the guitar a distinct aesthetic but also aid in minimizing feedback. This design enhancement leads to a sound that is sharp, focused, and resonant, with a hint of nostalgia.
The guitar is further brought to life with the FT-5E Filter’Tron humbucking pickups. These pickups encapsulate the iconic Gretsch sound, delivering a potent mix of full-bodied punch, crystalline clarity, and pronounced note definition.
For the modern player, the G5420T-140 offers a plethora of control options. With individual volume knobs for each pickup, a master tone, and a treble bleed master volume, the player has total authority over their sound. Complementing this is the Classic “C” shaped maple neck, designed for maximum comfort and ease of play, topped off with a 12-inch radius laurel fingerboard.
Aesthetically, this guitar is a showstopper. Drenched in a unique Two-Tone Pearl Platinum over Stone Platinum finish, it’s accentuated with a matching pickguard, chrome hardware, and a commemorative 140th Anniversary head plaque. Additionally, the Bigsby B60 vibrato tailpiece and the Adjusto-Matic bridge with a secured laurel base add functionality while enhancing its vintage allure.
In tandem with this release, the Limited Edition G5230T-140 Electromatic 140th Anniversary Jet FT Single-Cut also graces the market. This variant boasts a double-cutaway maple body with a chambered spruce center block and the esteemed Black Top Broad’Tron humbucking pickups. Like its sibling, it too wears the Two-Tone Stone Platinum over Pearl Platinum finish and is adorned with the celebratory 140th Anniversary plaque.
Both these guitars are not just instruments; they are tributes to Gretsch’s enduring legacy. Perfect for those seeking the classic Gretsch sound in a modern avatar, the G5420T-140 Electromatic is a testament to craftsmanship, innovation, and passion.
By choosing the Gretsch G5420T-140 Electromatic, you’re not just picking a guitar; you’re embracing a piece of history. Experience the perfect blend of past and present with this limited edition beauty.
