Great all-around instrument

Having read a load of users reviews of the G5220, I still thought that it was a good guitar *for the money*, and that it would look good. Since my budget was really tight, I couldn't really ask for more, but man, did I get a whole lot more!

This is surely one of the best guitars I've ever played, let alone bought. Does "the Gretsch sound" like a pro, but can still tear it up like a certain "Les-something". In this price range you usually go fo Squier or Epiphone when looking at classic stuff, but Gretsch has really surprised me in the best way. I play some experimental stuff, mixed up with blues, rockabilly and country, and it's perfect!

Of course, it doesn't play as smoothly as my old American Standard Fender Tele, but it's still pretty darned sweet to play it, and it certainly looks the part!

So, basically,

Pros: Sounds great, plays really well, looks awesome

Cons: Some minor cosmetic dings, probably due to it being an under-500-bucks instrument. And even still, unless you take a magnifying glass to it, there's no way you'll feel like it's a cheaper guitar.

10/10 would buy again

First of all The Thomann team and the experience they provided was outstanding. From the second they approved the purchase i was in the loop of were my guitar was and so on . The UPS service was very welcome and it was for free!!! It took 5 days for the guitar to come to Bulgaria witch i though would be a 30 day wait really ... The guitar even came almost in tune well packaged.
Now on the guitar it self.
Sounds like it should !!! Witch is versatile and just an easy overall instrument to play. I'm so happy !


Beautiful guitar visually and to play.

I bought this guitar recently and I am very happy with it. The finish is very good and the chrome really adds to the classic looks. The Broadtron pickups have a wide range and can still produce the classic Gretsch sound. The tone and sustain is impressive. The neck pickup was recessed on delivery but it was very easy to adjust. The communication and delivery from Thomann was, as usual, excellent.

Très déçue de la qualité de cette guitare !

J'ai commandé cette guitare il y a deux mois.
La première est arrivée avec le manche fêlé. Le SAV Thomann a été efficace, mais j'ai du attendre 3 semaines que le retour se fasse etc...etc..
Nouvelle guitare reçue, premier essai le bouton de switch ne fonctionne pas : pas de son au micro chevalet. Là le SAV de Thomann me dit de la renvoyer !!! et on serait reparti pour au moins un mois. Alors non seulement je suis déçue de la réponse de Thomann, de la qualité des matériaux, (elle est très belle c'est vrai ... mais ça ne suffit pas).
Les micros ont l'air pas trop mal, enfin pour les positions que j'ai pu tester. Par contre beaucoup de plastique, en entrée de gamme chez Gretsch on pouvait s'y attendre, mais bon ... ça gâche un peu le plaisir.
Bref, c'est peut être pas de chance mais je ne referais pas cet achat si j'avais le choix.
