135 years of Classic Gretsch® Tone

In celebration of 135 years of “That Great Gretsch SoundTM", we proudly present the G5420TG Electromatic® 135th Anniversary LTD Hollow Body Single-Cut with Bigsby® guitar.

Like our prized G6118 AnniversaryTM 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’TronTM 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-ClassicTM "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-MaticTM bridge with pinned compressed ebony base topped off with a gleaming Bigsby® B60 tailpiece. The G5420TG will be produced in 2018 only.
