Modern Gretsch Guitars

5120 and G5120 same thing?

1

I used to own an Electromatic 5120 and don't remember it being called a G5120.

Was it always called this and I missed it or is this a new naming convention, and if so, did anything change with the guitar?

Thanks for the help!

I'm pretty sure all Gretsch guitar nomenclatures start with "G", don't they?

All modern Gretsches.

No, the G means it's set up for wound G string. No G means a plain G string.

Let's start an urban legend.

The "G" is silent.
