It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud.

Manufacturer's Warranty
Gretsch® Instrument Limited Lifetime Warranty FMIC warrants your Gretsch brand instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as it is owned by the original retail purchaser, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized Service Centers for warranty service. The Gretsch Dealer from whom you purchased your instrument may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your Gretsch instrument. To receive warranty service, return the complete instrument to an Authorized Service Center, with your sales receipt as proof of purchase, during the applicable warranty period. Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge. Remedies beyond normal service repair of any Gretsch instrument require both an evaluation and confirmation of the defect and a direct recommendation to FMIC from an Authorized Service Center for alternative considerations. All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Gretsch instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation, and are not covered by this warranty.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420T Electromatic Electric Guitar with Bigsby:

I ordered my guitar from the Winter Park store. It arrived today (4/11/2018).
The guitar is beautiful, my main reason for purchasing it
I am disappointed the E, A, And D strings all have a really bad buzz. I called the store and they told me they could do a set up for $49.00. I can see if I bought the guitar from Sam Ashe and brought it in there would be a charge. This just doesn't seem like good business practice. NOt a good way to make a customer happy with their purchase.

Will Always Shop at Guitar Center

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420T Electromatic Electric Guitar with Bigsby:

Ok, I'm giving the 5 stars primarily because Guitar Center made my kid happy. 18th birthday. Wanted a cherry red Gibson. Salesman spoke to him and got to the bottom of what this little better than a beginner guitar player was hoping to achieve in the way of sound and music interest and this is what he chose. It's a beautiful guitar, it sounds fabulous to this untrained ear, and with a little tuning it was ready to play out of the box. If you want a technical review, I can't help you. But I will say that we were treated great, not rushed into a purchase (2hours) and my son has been playing his new guitar and enjoying every minute of it.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5420T Electromatic Electric Guitar with Bigsby:

What can I say? Its a GRETSCH! The red sparkle finish is perfect. ( I named her Scarlet) The sound is surprisingly good with the black tops. Definitely has "That Great Gretsch Sound" especially through my '65 reissue Twin! I am VERY satisfied with this guitar!

      I went to get the Fairlane Blue finish but when I saw the Red Sparkle one I fell in love with it. Beautiful finish, reminded me of a Hot Rod! I just had to have it! Sounds great too as well as being a looker!
