What can I say, it's a Gretsch! Gretsch has long been one of my favorite guitar manufacturers, and this guitar is no exception to that rule. When I found out that most Gretsch guitars are made in China nowadays, I was a bit apprehensive. But I've seen nothing but good quality, affordable instruments from the China-made Gretsches, so I had no initial reservations about this one. When I picked it up, I could tell it had very solid craftsmanship. The inlays and bindings look well done, as does the sunburst finish. Playability is very good, and I have to say these knobs are by far the coolest in the guitar industry!


Here's where the guitar really shines. This Gretsch has Filtertron pickups, which act like a humbucker for noise cancellation purposes, but have a very snappy, almost single-coil-like sound. The clarity is off the charts - no matter what crazy jazz chord I thought of, this guitar presented each note in high-definition sound. It is a great sounding axe for rockabilly, blues, jazz, country, and classic rock.


This guitar is an outstanding choice for a person on a limited budget - it absolutely rocks! Nothing is lacking in any way - the finish is excellent, all the detail work is spot-on, the pickups sound great, and the Bigsby vibrato is a big plus, of course. This is a highly versatile instrument that will provide years of enjoyment, and make the player look stylish while doing it! Gretsch is a class-act and is really onto something here. Highly recommended to all.
