fine acoustically but the pickups don't work
Windowscrashed, 03.10.2020
the guitar sounds great when it works. The build quality is worse than my 120 euro Squire strat, the knobs were bent and the pickups only work sometimes. I have requested a replacement as this is unacceptable on a guitar this price. I have sent a video to Thomann as they requested but haven't had any reaction since. I hope this is a mistake. the inspection card that came with the guitar is signed by 4 different people and the fact that no one picked up on this is disturbing. Owning a Gretsch has been my dream for years, so I'm a bit shocked that it is as bad as it is. As a first order from Thomann, this does not leave a good impression.

The replacement was a little better but the pickups had terrible feedback because of the metal plate on them. still sent it back because I have given up on Gretsch.

I am in love.
Jonny Mangione, 12.04.2019
Fantastic body, terrific looking Gretsch. I keep opening the office door to see just how beautiful she is. I've introduced her to the family and they've all taken her in with open arms. I'm loving the bigsby, the tremelo is great. Spent an extra 50 euros on chrome volume knobs as I wasn't keen on the plastic ones. Worth it, if you're visually OCD like myself. I repeat: This guitar looks GREAT.

The sound: once plugged in, this beauty is very warm, very full. Even on heavy gain there is no feedback but the Boss Katama amp I've got is a little buzzy with her. Nothing that would jeopardize our relationship.

Biggest drawbacks: she is a little high maintenance. I need to constantly tune her up. I've read this on other reviews, the purchaser merely bought new tuning knobs. Also there is a teensy little rattle (not electric) out of her when played acoustically. I think it's the humbuckers. I've read reviews that say the same and their solution is to, you guessed it, buy and install new humbuckers.

Nobody is perfect, human or guitar, and I'm still in love. She just needs a bit of TLC.

excellent rapport qualité/prix
kwlzk, 27.12.2019
Tout d'abord impressionné par la rapidité de réaction des services de Thomann, bravo !
La guitare est très bien emballée, pas de risque pour le transport.
L'instrument est magnifique, la couleur rouge est top ! On tombe tout de suite sous le charme de l'instrument. C'est ma première demi-caisse je ne voulais pas investir trop et je dois dire que je ne suis pas déçu. J'ai longtemps hésité avec les versions plus chère de la même marque que j'avais déjà eu en main mais la différence ne vaut pas le double du prix...
Les micros sont bons, cependant il me semble judicieux de les changer... A voir dans le temps car je n'ai la guitare que depuis quelques semaines.
Seul bémol : j'ai du faire régler la guitare par mon luthier.
Egalement il faut savoir que ce type de modèle souffre d'un défaut type "dysharmonie" : grattez les cordes entre les mécaniques et le sillets et vous aurez le même type de son à chaque accord...
Mon luthier m'a confirmé que ce défaut pouvait apparaitre sur des modèles bien plus cher (donc rien à voir avec la qualité de fabrication). Ca gêne ou ça ne gêne pas, à chacun son avis; Personnellement j'ai trouvé une solution faite maison et qui ne jure pas esthétiquement.

Pour résumer, je conseille à qui veut s'acheter sa première demi-caisse, ou qui veut juste se la jouer avec une guitare qui en jette ;)

...was für eine Schönheit. Und nicht nur die Schönheit ist es, die überzeugt, sondern auch das Spielgefühl sowie der Sound. Oftmals wird gesagt, Hollow-Body-Gitarren sind tendenziell für Jazz ausgelegt. Spätestens, wenn Richard Fortus oder Dave Grohl eine Hollow-Body in die Finger kriegen ist bewiesen, was für Rockmaschinen diese Gitarren sind. Sehr, sehr geil!

Von der Verarbeitung her lässt sich nichts bemängeln. Bundrein eingestellt, Intonation passt. Von Grund auf bereits ohne Amp sehr laut aufgrund des semi-holen Bodys, mit Amp nen geiler, rockiger Sound oder eben auch für smoothe Sachen geeignet. Clean eine Wucht, angezerrt eine Wucht.
Im harten Metalbereich würde ich sie persönlich nicht ansehen, wofür ich sie aber auch nicht ausgewählt habe.

Sie ist vestibulär schön ausgewogen, neigt nicht zu einer Kopflastigkeit. Ein angenehmes Tragegefühl verbindet den Gesamteindruck zu einem rundum zufriedenen Musikinstrument.
