Hello Pete, welcome to GT, it's good to have you here. Lots of good choices in the Gretsch lineup. Good luck with your search. I've not played the two you asked about so can't comment on them. As others have said the G5420T series gets a lot of love.
Okay I was up late last night and early this morning searching & comparing models and looking at secondhand ads for G5129 & G5124, also came across a G5120.
But I decided to go and check out the G5420T and it was in stock about 70 miles away.
Love at first Twang is best way to describe it!
Home now with it so thank you all for your help and tips with making my first purchase, you’re all great and friendly on here.
I’m sure I’ll be posting more pleas for help as time goes on, cheers for now
That´s awesome!! The blue 5420 is soooo pretty!!
That blue is just beautiful.
Nice. The 5420 (Aspen Green) was my first Gretsch. You'll be very happy with it. I'll never part with mine even keeping it over a proline (6659).
Welcome! Best of luck out there. Congrats on the beautiful 5420!
You did pretty good. I bet it will become your #1. That one will hold your attention for quite a while. Welcome.
I am a total rockabilly fan and have been studying it for about four years. My Gretsch guitar choices were first a 2622, then a 5422, and now a Tennesee Rose. I matched those with a VoxAC10 and an MXR carbon copy pedal, and found the sound I wanted. What I have discovered is there are myriad variations within the genre, and what made me most aware of this is an internet station coming out of the UK. They’ve got a huge library and it’s fun to jam along with their playlists. You may already be aware of it, but if not, here’s the link.
Congratulations, Pete, on that beautiful new guitar!
Thanks for your welcomes and help, much appreciated.
I hadn’t listened to RockabillyRadio.net so that’s handy and I’ll give it a try. I’ve got a decent size rockabilly and rock n roll vinyl collection that I’ve collected over last 40 odd years.
I’ve always stuck with listening to vinyl on my hi-fi separates and just had maybe 10% of my collection on iTunes but time to get the whole collection on to digital now, easier to learn playing along with I should think?
When my retirement starts in 4 months I’m going to have lots of time to get practising.
absolutely in love with that blue sparkle finish, congrats!
All guitar players should study, at least a little, rockabilly. It is how I improved my right hand skills. Just playing rock and roll, I was hiding poor right hand technique. Can't hide poor right hand technique playing rockabilly.
Great choice Pete! Congrats. She'll come in useful during your retirement Congrats on that as well.
