Slight differences like neck radius and nut width:

If you just want any guitar, I highly agree, but with these, they have a very distinct look and sound to them that you're not really going to get from the ones you mentioned.

FYI, lots of confusion on the Gretsch lineup nowadays. The Electromatic is now the Middle level, but they're still a nice guitar for the money. Even better, they no longer say electromatic on the headstock. However, I own this exact same guitar in black, with upgraded pots and wiring harness from TV Jones, and ive had it for sale for $500 for a year with no bites. Demand seems to be dropping.

The green one, and almost all of the Gretsch guitars on here lately have been the Streamliner series, which is their new lower line. This guitar is the electromatic series.., hence the confusion and why people are thinking the recent deals have been so great. then you go to Reverb and the market is flooded.

I agree the Gretsch has a certain following for sure...I had 5420T I think it was for a short time...seemed to bulky for me,but to each his own,really didn't notice much difference in sound,the original owner had swapped the pickups,I was able to flip it for a profit,which is not easy to do with a non USA axe...also seems like most products these daze, the quality has waned the past 20 years,or perhaps just have to spend 2-3x the cash for the same guitar!
