We would have to disassemble one of these pickups to verify the thickness of the magnet, which we are unable to do at this time.

The first two photos (the pickup without tabs) are pictures of the bridge option, while the second two photos (the pickup with the tabs) are pictures of the neck pickup option. The two options are different in construction.

It appears that the Gretsch G5420T uses Blacktop pickups, which are larger in size than these FilterTrons. Modifications would need to be made to the guitar to properly install these in that specific guitar.

Prompt. No phone, but it didn't matter. I emailed a question and it was answered quickly. My order was shipped for free in less than 24 hours and arrived soon after. Very happy.
