These newer 5420’s are seriously good guitars, so glad to have them in the house.
Is that the fairlane blue?
I’ve got one of those and I decided today to remove the pick guard.
I reckon it looks much nicer without.
Yeah it is,
I think the pick guard is a personal thing. I personally like them on
That’s a beautiful pair. The Fairlane 5420 always reminds me of my old Regal Blue Hot Rod. That’s a good thing as it was a great guitar.
I seriously think these give the prolines a good run for their money.
A lot to love with these two.
Absolutely, they play as good as most prolines
The current 5420s don't leave too much room for improvement ... they still do, but it's not much. They're great!
... no pickguard: she's most beauty when most naked.
I’m kinda biased. Here is my Fairlane Blue 5420 hanging out with a couple of my other guitars
I love the orange they put on the gold models! I was almost tempted to buy one and swap over all my chrome!
Beautiful guitars @musicman100
Agreed. I'm a pick guard guy too, it dresses them up.
I've owned several 5420s over the years, and not ONE of them has ever been bad. It is a consistently satisfying product. Gretsch nailed it with those ones.
I'm feeling that way w/ my 5420TG-CDG. Seems like the best feeling 5420 I've played so far. Bone stock aside from strings & Bigsby spring the acoustic tone is really nice & the BT Filters seem to match up really well in there too. The only Japanese hollow I've got now is the 6119-1962HT but the 5420 is its match for me in just about every functional area (& I think that Tenny is a stand out for me among the Pro Lines I've played).
