I purchased a 5420tg a few months ago. My first ever Gretsch and my first hollowbody . I favor strats and 335 types . My first inclination was to pull off some Western Swing and Rockabilly licks on this , but after a while I play everything that I play on my other guitars and it sounds great . Anything from country to AC/DC and blues . It sounds good thru a Marshall , but really shines through both my 68 Custom Princeton and DRRI. Clean or OD it sounds great. What style of music do you use your Gretsch with?
