Stylish and affordable, the Gretsch G5420 Electromatic Hollow Body features dual-coil pickups, adjustable bridge, chrome-plated die-cast tuners and Bigsby-licensed B60 tailpiece.

Deep bodied and sounding with plenty of vibe, this is just about the most amazing guitar we've ever seen!

The body is large and deep, 72mm deep in fact all around, across the lower bout it is about 390mm at its widest. Here finished in a striking metallic Fairlane Blue, with the beautiful swirly Maple grain showing through.

The G5120's pickups are their familiar Dual-Coil humbuckers, large Chrome plates with 2 rows of polepieces in amongst the black tape.

Played acoustically the G5420 sounds woody and mellow, plenty of volume for acoustic strumming with pleasing jazzy tones.

Plugged in, the Dual-Core pickups prove to be very powerful, picking up just about everything you do! Loads of clarity, brittleness and chime - perfect for your clean and mildly distorted channels. Not really designed for heavier stuff though, as you might imagine.

In all, a very good value proper Gretsch semi acoustic guitar. If you can't afford the real deal US made ones, the Electromatics are perfectly good enough, with all the vibe and character, for a quarter of the price.

Great sounds, lovely to play and character in abundance.
