    This is a brand new Gretsch 5420T Electromatic Hollowbody electric guitar in Candy Apple Red. It has never been played at all and still has the plastic on the pickguard and truss rod cover.

    It has GOLD hardware, which isn’t currently offered by Gretsch in this color. That’s because I just bought two brand new Gretsch 5420T guitars (one orange, one red) and immediately switched the gold and silver hardware from one to the other. I decided to keep the orange one with silver hardware and sell this Candy Apple Red with gold hardware instead.

    You may recall my thread from last week where I considered going this route and asked for input. I’m really loving this color combo. Thanks to everyone for your help!

    I’m asking $749 but open to offers.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Thanks!

    I’ve never been the biggest fan of gold hardware personally (I prefer chrome/nickel), but when I saw it come to life on this candy apple red, I thought it was gorgeous. Funny how the gold looks “meant to be” on various types of colors.

    Considering how much 5420’s cost brand new from a shop, this is a killer deal!!

    (We still need to see pictures of your vintage orange with silver hardware;))

    @calebaaron666 Thanks, and you crack me up. I remember you requesting those pics of the orange one a week or so originally. Sorry, I forgot!

    It’s night now, so I’ll take pics of it tomorrow and post them for sure!

    Ok @calebaaron666, All of your dreams have come true…

    OK, maybe this isn’t that exciting :p, but here are the pics you requested of the orange with silver.

    The swap for both guitars turned out great!

    This looks dope! How much do you love this guitar?!
    It’s interesting for me to see because i’ve often wondered what my vintage orange 5420 would look like with silver.
    I’m happy with my gold though. F1DF4938-2728-4343-A049-495AA2D4B0EA.jpeg

    Hahaha ... Yep, I love it.

    Though I also definitely appreciate gold hardware, pickguards, etc., I’ve always wanted an all-silver one like this.

    Yours is killer too! I love the western touches that you’ve added.

    Thanx! Mine is almost like a poor man’s 6120 at this point.
    It plays and sounds like a dream.
    I liked the blacktops a lot, but after gigging with it once, i decided to go another way.

    Totally get it. Is that a dyna and a TV Jones? What a cool mix.

    Country western up top, hard rockabilly down low.
