Overview

When the Gretsch R&D team unearthed a Baldwin-era Filter'Tron pickup with knockout punch and phenomenal twang, they incorporated its DNA into dynamic "Black Top" Filter'Tron pickups, which now endow Electromatic hollow-body instruments such as the G5420T with an electrifying voice and identity.

The G5420LH Electromatic Left-Handed Hollowbody Guitar is a sharp Gretsch guitar with a bound single-cutaway hollowbody featuring sound-post bracing and elegant bound f holes. Other features include a maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and hump-block pearloid inlays, silver plexi pickguard, three-position pickup switch, classic "G" arrow control knobs, rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic bridge and harp tailpiece, vintage-style open-back tuners and chrome-plated hardware.

Case sold separately.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420LH Electromatic Left-Handed Hollowbody Guitar:

I'll preface I'm still relatively new to guitar......but I've hit the ground running as far as buying equipment. The guitar first off is beautiful , the finish is flawless .i see no issue with anything in the manufacturing at all. .......sound , I knew it'd be an excellent "clean" sounding guitar but I was worried about any gain and the feedback you hear about with hollow bodies. The cleans yes very clear with nice "hollow overtones" almost sounding like some extra gain is already engaged...it really surprised me how bluesy it was sounding already ...then on my practice amp Marshall mg 15 cfr I clicked the high gain setting, and slowly just kept rolling up the crunch. Now I still haven't played through my tube amp (small living area and hard to accomadate switching amps) , wow what an awesome and incredibly original sound . I whole heartedly expected to not be impressed with high gain use, I mean this is about the lowest end gretsch not a Chet Atkins, brian Setzer or other high end high dollar artist model . It hold tuning very well and was intonated as perfect as I've seen on a new guitar. The neck reminds of that fender feel but with a non natural feel on the back of the neck (painted and clear coated) my sweaty hands stick a bit more than on other guitars.....that little issue and the high frets (above 13 or so ) being in the "body " for my medium /small / beginners hands it's hard to fret quickly up there. The totally different knob configuration is always a bit confusing every time I switch to the gretsch from another guitar. I try not to play acoustically (with electric guitars) anymore , I get false representation of my practice.....but for strumming as acoustic only it got more tone and volume than my low end La Patrie nylon string. If your on a budget and looking for a real decent hollow body , I have no issue suggesting this tone machine... It's very early in the morning so if I think of more I'll try and edit later down the road....
