Gretsch G5420 LH Electromatic Aspen Green

Like all Electromatic guitars, it delivers the fearless and electrifying authenticity that has set Gretsch apart as the quintessential rock ‘n’ roll guitars from the very beginning. It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud.

Premium features include dual Black Top Filter’Tron humbucking pickups, versatile upgraded controls including master volume treble bleed circuit, oversized bound F-holes and aged multi-ply body binding, smaller late-’50s G6120 bound headstock, Graph Tech® NuBone™ nut, pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail fingerboard inlays

Bright and spanky “Black Top” humbucking pickups

Gretsch uncovered a set of Baldwin-era Filter’Tron pickups with incredible punch and twang. They reverse engineered those special pickups to create the set of “Black Top” Filter’Tron humbucking pickups that you’ll find loaded in this G5420LH. With their robust character and trademark cut, the Gretsch Black Top Filter’Tron humbuckers keep you ready for everything from rockabilly and country to blues and classic rock. They’re quickly becoming very popular at Sweetwater.

Exceptionally flexible electronics

The Gretsch G5420LH Electromatic allows you to pull off a lot of tonal tricks. Volume controls for each pickup help you create a perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you have the pickups dialed in. And thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. And of course you’ll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually.

Gretsch twang and punch for lefties

Finding exactly the right guitar can be difficult for left-handed players. But Gretsch’s G5420LH Electromatic hollowbody electric guitar puts the company’s unmistakable tone in a left-handed hollowbody that’s sure to please. With top-end features like the “Black Top” Filter’Tron pickups and expertly applied body, F-hole, and fretboard binding, left-handed players searching for the powerful tones of Brian Setzer, Billy Duffy, and Duane Eddy can rejoice in the quality of their new guitar.
