They say that Black Friday is over. Who are they kidding. A lot of deals will last until Tuesday. Take this Gretsch G5427TFM with $200 knocked off the price at Guitar Center. It's still live this weekend, but ends on Monday.
The Gretsch G5427TFM Electromatic is based on the time-honored designs of yesteryear and is redolent of vintage Gretsch masterpieces like the Chet Atkins Hollowbody. Indeed, with its single-cutaway hollowbody construction and Orange Stain finish it bears more than a passing resemblance to this classic Gretsch.
This Gretsch G5427TFM Electromatic features a gorgeous laminated flame maple top, along with tone-enhancing, feedback-busting trestle block bracing. Sporting a pair of FT-5E Filter’Tron pickups this guitar is voiced for a deep, rich sound with enhanced top-end definition.
