escobar.17's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Gretsch G5448T Double Jet w/Bigsby
Affordable and not bad finish inspired by the version malcom young (Korean manufacturing).
Full body pierced notch double mahogany table with curved laminated maple binding
Set Mahogany neck with 22 frets.
the pickups are 2 mini humbuckers gretsch (tv jones: meaning one side with his classic gretsch .....) a 3-position selector, 1 volume and 1 tone.
Bigsby not as sensitive as the Electromatic 5120 (orange) but it has a good tremolo.
only "catch" the bone nut which can be a source of concern for the tuning and maintenance of notes (to be lubricated).


The handle is nice for the game, not thinner, but it's still super playable.
the guitar is quite heavy, but I like personal.
body shape makes it easy access to acute.
the Bigsby can quickly take the lead for access to volumes and tones, but you can rotate 180 ° c so cool.
at the beginning I had a lot of problems with the accuracy of ratings, which changed during a game nothing to do with the Bigsby (albeit often using it it fair) is related to the nut in bone gene string tension (lubricate).


There's a vintage rock edge not bad.
it does not go too sharp, it keeps a lot of bass.
Personal I use it really for the rhythm. nothing to do with a Start '.
the sound does not stay too "clean" in an amount of hair your gain, you get a fast rock well.
I used it initially on an amplifier transistor (yuck) but when I plugged a lamp ... bah no photo. careful not too get your "middle" because the sound quickly becomes dull. my bass is a little higher than the middle, and treble spend a little above. the gain to 5 / 10.
otherwise the Bigsby makes a lot, but is not sensitive enough for my taste. it is still necessary to use it.


I have it now for about a year.
quite a hassle to start with, especially related to the problem must note.
the pickups are fine, but others would be better (There's more possibility: hight sensitive filter'tron, hilo'tron, Dynasonic, they worked with Seymour Duncan pickups for this matter).
if not for the moment very happy with the choice.
if I take a gretsch it will probably be a 5120

Gretsch G5448T Double Jet w/Bigsby
made in china
handle a little too round to play but not impossible
standing imbalance: the head tends to want to fall so solution: lead your belt has the opposite! )
LICENSED Bigby bridge and tailpiece no "roll on" ... (Never had the opportunity to change it but hey I do not following a patient's permanent vibrato)
its former owner was, however, change the mechanisms by luthier to put the groove that takes more than the original agreement and it is good!


more comfortable sitting, but you get to play standing up without too much difficulty, a thin coating (but with hands moitent I talc left hand if it fits too lol)

good access to acute
bigbsy tremolo style: it is particularly necessary to try and at the same time it gives a single rate that you play I really like


its rate:
Blues: Medium
rock - pop - rockabilly: perfect
hard rock: medium medium but can be interesting (I did a cover with plug in baby's funny and stunning at the same time!) to the ac / dc ca okay too (blues rock side ..)


a good second hand guitar to add a sound character has its own range but not in main guitar and it sounds gresth I like but I do not like gretsh ....

Gretsch G5448T Double Jet w/Bigsby
Manufacturing korea
Bigsby bridge type


So this guitar is for me to be uncomfortable!
The handle is a log (though I'm fairly tolerant about race in general much like the handle of a Start or a Les Paul or G5120) but then the attention! the stuff is Mastoc and the key is filthy (he forgot to shave without doubt ...)
Otherwise the access is easy to acute m'enfin not too the style of guitar ...
It is still good heavy m'enfin AC c'es not too serious
At the sound is pretty average too much sustain, not really present, enough draft (draft attention not rock'n'roll but rough in the wrong direction)


I play garage rock, blues and rock 60's and frankly it does not suit me at all ...
I plugged my jcm 900 with a 4 * 12 cab with V30 ... uh not that great: / ... That day I stopped a middle of the set by repeating change so scratched it was horrible to play the above


I played with several times (I did not stay on a bad impression) but I really do not like this guitar
So I break my head has drafted an opinion that I really do not like ...
Infact on strong point is its looks buddy has it in gold is it true that it is class! But other than that nothing interresting
I think if you look for a guitar rock and roll not covered rather too expensive gibson melody maker who remains in the same price range or if you are attached has tried a Gretsch 5120 or 5125 ...
Well if not broken your piggy bank for a true dual U.S. jet
I put 3 for the look
