What is your opinion of this product?
I own two of these, actually. I got really into Brian Setzer stuff and was at Guitar Center one day. They had a new orange 5420 there, and a mint condition used orange Chet Atkins 6120. I played both, and much preferred the neck and feel of the 5420. I ordered an aspen green 5420 from AMS and later bought a mint used orange 5420 that I found online. I love both guitars! Great to even sit and play unplugged.
The aspen green one has the secured bridge, which I prefer. The craftsmanship on these guitars is just excellent. Stays in tune, well constructed, and absolutely beautiful. I love my Les Paul, strat, telecaster, and Epiphone Casino are all great looking guitars, but none of them will ever get the kind of compliments that my Gretsch 5420 guitars do.
