It's been overdue, and now that I've added the 6128T-TVP (new yesterday) I owe the post on both of them. The G5420T is nearly two weeks old - it's an electromatic and I've upgraded the bigsby, pickups, bridge, and tuners. The 6128T-TVP is a power jet (TV Jones powertron pickups) so I intend to do nothing to it. The 5420 has a nice chunkier neck - but the 6128 is fun to play, and very resonant with its chambered body. Both sound great plugged in - with the edge going to the TV Jones pickups in the 6128. Action on both is excellent. In fact, tbh, the 5420T is the nicer playing of the two, with the medium jumbo frets. If you've been on the fence about Korea quality, get off of it - the electromatics are insanely good guitars. A little history on this 5420: I saw they had this FSR model on sale for $749, and there was supposed to be one at the nearest Guitar Center. After driving 2 hours to get there, when they got the guitar down, it had scratches, nicks, and dings on it. I was pretty depressed about that, but I could tell I wanted that model because it played and sounded great. Maybe that's why it was so knocked up? They had finally locked it on the top rack to stop it being beaten to death. I was offered a discount of $185 including a real Gretsch case for the guitar, so I bought it. I took it home and got busy with the sandpaper, and micromesh sanding pads. It looks pretty good now. Having gotten such a discount on the guitar, I immediately purchased the Gretsch bigsby on ebay, along with a set of filtertrons on reverb (only $60 wow), and the tuners from stewmac. I didn't bother with the pots as these new electromatics are coming with the full size pots and a treble bleed circuit on the master. The power jet came as is, a perfect new guitar. The only thing I changed was adding the rocking bar bridge - I had a spare one in my parts bin. Gallery is here with full size photos!
