I've been looking at getting another Gretsch and these two have my interest. Looks like they are nearly the same but the 2420t has a NATO neck and the 5420t has maple neck. The 5420t is a lot dearer. Being on a pension I'm wondering is it worth spending the extra? Will the 5420t play any better and is the quality that much better? I just play at home but appreciate a nice guitar. I just bought a G2622 and really like it so am leaning towards the cheaper Streamliner.
