Default Gretsch G5420TG-59 - Vintage Orange - Sweetwater Exclusive--Attn: Steve DeRosa

Hi Steve and All,

I'm interested in this Korean-made Gretsch archtop which I'm assuming has the great build quality of the double-cut Korean-made Gretsch G5422TG Electromatic Hollowbody Double-Cut with Bigsby we discussed last winter, and that you recommended at the time as a good value choice. Both guitars have many of the same great features such as Black Top Filter'Tron pickups and Bigsby B60 Vibrato tailpiece. Being mainly an acoustic guitarist, I'm thinking that the slightly thicker body of the Gretsch G5420TG-59 - Vintage Orange - Sweetwater Exclusive will suit me better than would the thinner-body Gretsch G5422TG Electromatic Hollowbody Double-Cut with Bigsby model.

Steve and any players with Gretsch experience I'd like to hear your thoughts on the relative build quality of each model and any features that could compel me to choose one over the other. Thanks!
