The three models – the G5420 (available in right- and left-handed versions), G5422 (also available in righty- and lefty-friendly incarnations) and G5422G-12 12-string guitar – are each outfitted with Gretsch's newly unveiled advanced trestle bracing system, which, the company says, provides improved sustain and a snappier attack.
The company's newly developed FT-5E Filter’Tron pickups also come aboard all three models, which are all available now. You can hear them in action below.
All three guitars feature laminated maple bodies and C-shaped maple necks with laurel fingerboards that boast 22 medium jumbo frets.
The pair of FT-5E Filter’Tron pickups on each model are controlled by two individual volume knobs, plus a master volume knob with a treble bleed circuit, a master tone knob, and a three-way toggle switch.
Though the G5420T and G5422TG both feature Bigsby vibratos, the left-handed versions of those models instead boast G-cutout tailpieces. Hardware, meanwhile, comes finished in nickel on the G5420 and gold on the G5422 and G5422G-12.
The G5420 is available in Airline Silver, Azure Metallic, Orange Stain and Walnut Stain finishes; the G5422 comes in Orange Stain, Snowcrest White, and Walnut Stain finishes; and the G5422G-12 is available in Single Barrel Burst and Walnut Stain finishes.
The left-handed G5420, meanwhile, is only available in Orange Stain, and the left-handed G5422 comes exclusively in Snowcrest White.
The Gretsch G5420T ($799 right-handed, $899 left-handed), G5422TG and G5422G-12 (both $899) are available now.
