I can not believe that the characteristics can be found on the website of Gretsch

UTILIZATION

Handle: The handle is a strong point. I think he is fine and not too thick (vs. Telecaster).
The strings are close to the neck (low action) and all frets are easily accessible.
Body: This is a guitar rather imposing in size. The finish is perfect.
Tuning: It is good agreement in spite of my tendency to use the Bigsby:)
Drawing: I recommend taking a high enough for this guitar: 11-52.

SOUNDS

It was a very original sound okay I guess, but I changed the pickups with TV Jones (Mod fairly common on this type of model). After the break of TVJones and adjustment .... Whaooouuu. A real gretsch.
I use a VOX AC15CC1. The clean sound is superb and the crunch
I play Rock, blues, pop (Radiohead, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Oasis, BB King, Clapton, Coldplay, etc ...)

OVERALL OPINION

Everything is in the title
