Just in the process of getting a new gretsch, either a 5420TG, a 5422TG, a 5427TG, or a 5420T. I’ve listened to all the reviews, now it’s time to go to the store and play a few. However, I just read a thread in Gretsch talk Where are the guy was talking about trying to get a switch for his discontinued 5427 And that he bought it because it was on sale. I’m concerned about this, and also concerned about the MIC aspect. The Korean factory has made quality Electromatics for years. I have concerns about the quality coming out of a new factory, and even more concerned about security and supply given the fact that China, it is now clear, is becoming a very bad actor on the world stage. Politics aside, that doesn’t give high confidence in Gretsch’s future Security of supply. And even more concerning, when I read the specifications of the new 5420s and 5422s, they are identical to the 5427s, i.e. Laurel fretboards, FE – 5T pick ups, better feel on the tone knobs, better feel on the Bigsby. Some good things, however it indicates to me that they’re all coming from China now. Can anybody confirm or reject this notion?
