It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud.

Available in a limited edition stunning Candy Apple Red finish with gold hardware, the G5420TG offers premium features such as dual Black Top Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups, versatile upgraded controls including master volume treble-bleed circuit, oversized bound F holes and aged multi-ply body binding, larger early-‘50s G6120 bound headstock, Graph Tech® NuBone™ nut, pearloid Neo-Classic™ thumbnail fingerboard inlays and Bigsby® B60 vibrato tailpiece.
