1 catar 2 months ago I own a 1966 Anniversary ,2005 White Falcon and a 2017 5420T.To tell you the truth If you installed a Tru Arc bridge and a new pickup selector switch on the 5420 I would put it up against any of my guitars. When I first got the guitar the tone was kind of lackluster. Then I found out the guitar has adjustable pickups. I adjusted them and the guitar came alive. Just think a guitar 5 times cheaper than the pro models has adjustable pickups! I went to the Gretsch site, read the Electromatic manual and their is no mention of being able to adjust the whole pickup. The only adjustments they explain are the pole pieces. Anyway I would just like to say ,at that price point I think it's the best built guitar you can buy!
