With a pair of Black Top Filter'Tron Pickups located at the bridge and neck, the G5420T amplifies the deep tones of the hollow maple body. The Filter'Tron Pickups deliver a huge, punchy sound that works well with rock music, yet it still produces excellent balance and transparency that allows the woods natural tone to shine through. With full, focused lows and sparkling highs, the Filter'Tron Pickups provide defined tones for a variety of playing styles.
This Gretsch G5420T is crafted from 5-ply maple, producing a full bodied resonance that is beautifully distinctive. The maple body delivers exceptionally bright and twangy tones, as well as exceptional sustain. A pair of classic F holes allow the sound to be projected even further, and they also add a touch of elegance to the overall appearance.
The Gretsch G5420T Guitar features a standard ''U'' neck profile, providing players with comfortable playability, and the perfect choice for those who play with their thumb on the back or side of the neck. This comfortable neck is crafted from maple for even brighter tones, and it is topped with rosewood, for enhanced articulation and sonic warmth.
One of the most recognisable features on this guitar is the Bigsby tremolo, which has featured on Gretsch guitars since the 1950s. With the Bigsby tremolo players can add tremolo and pitch-bending effects to single notes or full chords, while remaining in-tune. There is also an Anchored Adjusto-Matic Bridge that is common on Gretsch Guitars due to its reliable tuning. Introduced in the early 1970s, this innovative bridge offers superb, individual intonation for each string, with its six adjustable saddles. A secured rosewood base is also included in this design, and offers better resonance and stability.
