What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gretsch G5420LH Left-Handed Electromatic Hollow Body Single-Cut Electric Guitar is a fantastic Electromatic hollowbody model by Gretsch.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Gretsch G5420LH Left-Hand Electromatic Guitar's big-bodied single-cut archtop maple hollowbody, 22 medium jumbo frets, adjustomatic bridge and classic-sounding Blacktop Filtertron humbucker pickups.
What Gretsch has to say:
No nonsense, Electromatic hollow-body guitars are the perfect real, pure and powerful Gretsch instruments. They’re your next-step Gretsch—bold, dynamic and articulate, and crafted with essential Gretsch sound, style and playability.
Alive and resonant, the G5420LH has fully hollow build with a true Filter’Tron™ voice that explodes with a huge punch and clear, strong presence.
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 honour 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 and a Gretsch G-cutout tailpiece.
