Superb Guitar and service

08.04.2017
Having stumbled on a Gretsch acoustic/ electric when the Dean Guitar was struck by Cities I was so impressed that I immediately wanted to update with an electric.

Gretsch has won my heart with the history, sound and having that little we'll do it our way innovation.

As I'm just getting into guitar I couldn't push the £1000 figure so settled on the Stremliner range. Having read and watched the reviews I was impressed but the price concerned me that I've gone for the cheaper option.

Superb service from Thomann provided the instrument in tip top condition.

The Guitar was removed from the packaging and shown to my dogs who were the only things in the room like a scene from the lion king.

What a superb looking instrument the G2420T is. The depth of the varnish, the weight which is reassuringly substantial but not to a degree where it causes an issue.

After a quick tune up and smell of the sound holes it was time to give it a go.

Superb sound with ease of fingering on the frets with adequate room to make solid chords.

Then the Bigsby! Having seen and falling in love with the shape and style I gave it a go......... Crazy.

I found myself laughing like a maniac and entertained the rest of my family with imitating subconsciously the sound it made with my mouth!!

Everything about the guitar screams style. The sound and shape blew me away.

I've so much to learn but have a superb travel companion on the journey. A fantastic guitar with individual style. Just picking up the guitar gives me a thrill. I found myself last night with the guitar in the place my wife normally takes on the bed just strumming open strings t hear the sound the strings and body made.

A1 alround in the Gretsch experience thank you so much Gretsch/ Thomann

Actually I did not need this

Dirtnap, 23.08.2017
but when I saw that they released new line of Gretsch hollow-bodies within my budget, I thought I might go for it at some point. But then they released some new colours/models, and I jumped at it.

What else can I say? I'm not a full-time jazz and/or Rockabilly player, but whenever it was time to play that way, a Tele or Strat (albeit interesting) did not succeed in capturing that sound. Now I have that (mostly) and a Bigsby on top of that.

Downsides:
I don't like the knobs.
(One of) the fretboard inlays looks cheap/fake - probably only my copy.
Lastly I sort of miss the jingly, jangly sound of the TV-Jones Pinkup copies I'm familiar with on most Gretsches. These don't sound like that. Still I'm very happy with the overall sound.

Right now, this is the 1st guitar I pick up when I want to play.

I hope you like it, too
