I am 52 years old and I have been playing since I was seven years old. I'm not a pro, but I consider myself a well rounded player. I have played cheap guitars and really nice ones too. I play Bluegrass, Country, and Rock from every era. I owned a 70's Chet Atkins Super Axe and played a Country Gentleman for a while also. The new Electromatics took me back to that time in my life. This guitar is a dream to play. I would say this Gretsch is worth every penny! Fit and finish are flawless. The pickups deliver, no matter what you ask for. Clean, clear, crisp Jazzy sound to some over-driven southern Rock. They just sound great! I'm currently playing through a Fender HotRod Deluxe which I believe is a good match for the Gretsch's ability. I've also played this guitar through a Fender Twin Reverb where its tone and personality really came through. The only negative thing I can say about this guitar is the pickup toggle switch had some noise in it, and the intonation wasn't set properly when I bought it. Both issues have been rectified and I couldn't be happier. I have owned my orange Gretsch G5420T for just over 2 years now and I have never regretted my purchase. If you want a great guitar at a reasonable price and one that can do it all, the Gretsch is the one.

Purchased this guitar and it is a great looking instrument with great tone and playability. The bridge is pinned to the top of the guitar so it can not be moved. My guitar was not tunable as the bridge was too far forward so the harmonics were all off. Guitar Center Took VERY Good Care of me and I purchased another instrument. With some extra guitar tech work, this could be a great guitar!

    I haven't had much time to play this guitar yet but I've loved every minute of it so far. It brings that perfect big bodied Gretsch sound without breaking the bank.

      Beautifully made Gretsch Electromatic Hollowbody, Fairlane Blue just Pops. Fit and finish are well crafted from Korea. Sound from the Blacktop Filter Tron pickups are the Gretsch sound I was hoping for. Perfect.

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420T Electromatic Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        Beautifully made, fit and finish are very well done. The color ( Fairlane Blue) is brilliant. Fully bound body, neck, F Holes and head stock. Sound is what I was looking for in a Gretsch Hollowbody with the Blacktop Filter Tron pickups and Bigsby B60 tremelo. Sound Post style bracing under the Adjusto-Matic bridge works well. And the Treble Bleed/ Master Volume is a nice feature. Love it.

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420T Electromatic Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

          Bought the orange stain version to replace my older G5120. The blacktop filtertron pickups are a huge improvement over the old Gretsch humbuckers and the subtle design changes (F hole binding, smaller bound headstock and different neck angle) improve the looks and playability. It feels less boxy than the G5120. Build quality is excellent and I would highly recommend this guitar.

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420T Electromatic Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

            Very nice guitar. I've always wanted a gretsch and I just fell in love with this fairlane blue color. It played pretty well out of the box aside from a slight intonation adjustment. I really like the upgrades they did this year be removing the electromatic logo from the headstock and the thumbnail inlays. I definitely would buy this again.

                The guitar was shipped intact, no damage. The tec at GC in Akron did a quick setup. It played and sounded good. I will take it in to GC for a full setup after two weeks playing per the tec's advice.
