Gretsch G6128TLH-1957 Duo Jet w/Bigsby
Made in Japan, 22 frets and a Bigsby, Dua-sonic pickups, setting overall tone (a bit feeble, it's basically all or nothing), a volume for each pickup and a volume usually near the handle.
The émanché is a very fine handle type C, thinner than a Gibson, very easy and enjoyable to play. The bridge is the "rocking bar", careful not to move it because it is sensitive and after the guitar is not very fair, but it's a safe bet.
The finish quality is generally excellent.

UTILIZATION

The neck is super thin and comfortable to play, the bends are ACILS, access to treble is OK, but hey, considering the format is not perfect, but it gets there anyway.
The ergonomics are excellent, the guitar is very light as hollow, and when the sound ... it rained ^ to the contrary, hard to have a bad ...
... Knowing that this is not the guitar amps of all, the sound is very rich and really took a great extent on style amp Bluesbreaker or Twin or Vox is where the ... one takes the measure of the sound of this guitar and the wealth of microphones.

SOUNDS

Suited to my style because I'm not big on the tremolo dive bombs, and I'm not taping or hard to 300 per hour, it is an instrument that can address even when different styles, rock, tolerates the distorsiion and especially the overdrive (for Neil Young is cool), jazz, blues ...
The sound is crystal type on the mic acute, very rich, nothing to do with a Start for example, is a real pleasure, the sound is not tinny, the middle is my preferred position gives a serious excellent sound for Jazz, by removing the tone, it is the foot.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had it four months, I love the sound and playability, again, it's a very beautiful instrument.
The value for money if you buy the instrument in France is rather bad, buy the USA.
With experience, I will buy 2 for the next 100 years.
