Gretsch G5128 Electromatic Hollowbody

Who has never rv (Good any, it is on, but ...)
C'tait for me the example of the brand inaccessible only feature pros and killers (Listen to Brian Setzer ...) and also a brand connotes trs, somewhat underground, in short, the opposite of Vigier's what! I know it's childish but sometimes the choice of a guitar is an act of intention. I say sometimes because I'm 37 and when j'tais teen, you know, when you play the tennis racket in the mirror with one eye on the post of guitarist Mick Jones or Cramps, the The Clash (not the other), a silent Gretsh a Cadillac, found something crazy, the Grail quoi.Aujourd 'Today I saw the Star Acc ... Anyway, enough mtaphysique!


So here's a Gretsch makes Taiwan.
Just this sentence would dye his computer a purist!
And the opposite is true.
For the price, compared to a amricaine 3000 euros, it comes out with flying colors.
This is the classic Gresth, we like it or not, with a pan shot 21 boxes not accessible trs APRS me the 17, a Bigsby vibrato, which serves as a "trmolo" (it's not a floyd pink!), an enjoyable round, a good finish, an easel tune'o'matic (since I saw a new series with a floating bridge made of wood and the finish had the worst air, there has probably Difference as lots ...) and the United States microphones Harmond single coils with adjustable height studs.
Color: Gold glitter! So many that do!


I admit to have bought for the look, make, price, without even trying it!
No deception.Monte in 10-52, the clean sound is excellent, typical course, but full, rich and with the attack.
Perfect for a light amplifier.
Saturated in idem, to my surprise.Bien sr, beyond a threshold, began "Drooling" but fans sounds grimey and pais, you will be served.

In fact I use it on pieces trs DIFFERENT, with a versatility that I expected pas.Le choice of pickups and Tone SETTING THE enables large maps, it's really surprising!
Its got my default is common this type of guitar, it is not really ergonomic!
When the color, I can not get enough, but I understand this may be hsiter!
M'enfin even when a Gretsh golden straw! Friends mgalos shy or hidden at the bottom of the scne, you understand me!



Try it, it works!
Report quality-pleasure-unbeatable price! But it's a Gretsch, it's like hutres, y'en who like it, yet it is an aphrodisiac!
I put a 9 with the reserve when the ergonomics of the case, otherwise, total bargain!

PS: I could compare with an old Gretsch team in singles (a corvette of 60 'to the guy APRS) and Electromatic not red!

A +

Gretsch G5128 Electromatic Hollowbody
Gretsh meeting in Korea, U.S. components (pickups, Bigsby), 22 frets, single coil pickups ...


Ben Gretsh what!
Access to the bottom of the handle not very easy (12 th cargo it gets a little clumsy) but hey, who cares to do the solos we Vanhalen eh! ;)
... Should not you then buy a Jackson!
The handle is very nice, but needs a little time to adapt to the neo-users, it is rather "picked up" short, so at the same time fast enough ... It is very nice ... a real ice rink!
The guitar is very light for my taste and has the "great Gretsch sound"!
Wonderful, especially when you consider the price!


So there ... The heavy!
I see almost no difference with an American!
Truly stunning!
As listed on the previous opinion: A CADILLAC!
Sounds gretsh typed (it will appeal not necessarily for everyone), but my god, this guitar sounds great!

Small update: I certainly acknowledge that he fell on having bcp GOOD luck, because having tried other guitars of the same model, mine sounds particularly well (even if others are not shovels either eh!)!
The important thing is that it is well settled, especially in terms of harmonics etc ... If you are not familiar settings, make him a ride in the luthier)


I use it for about 6 months ... Nothing to say.
Then even if it sounded less, I would have bought anyway (c con but it's true)
It is super fun! ...
Frankly as much (at the risk of sounding like a moron for some), the detail that cracked me right away; THE LOOK: The gold glitter on it really, a bit "too much" but j'adooooore! !
But that does not detract from the charm of a femme fatale, is that this has almost all the scratching sound qualities I was looking for in addition to being beautiful!
If you still hesitate, then you're crazy or not at all rock'n'roll! ;)
COURRE JEWELRY BUY THIS !!!... or at least try, you'll be pleasantly surprised!

I note that I own high-end guitars, including Gretsch ... My enthusiasm is also due to the fact that this instrument is available in budget
It takes more than the road from her sisters in 3000 Euros (yes).
So if you want a hollow body of this type, and your budget is limited, I highly recommend this model ... I have tried other brands in same price, there is no comparison. Even equipped with double Electromatic did not convince me.
