If anybody wants me, I'll be in my room.
Klingon emperor, 23.05.2019
The minute I saw this instrument, I knew I had to have it. I first saw the gold one in a local store and thought it a bit flash for me. But it just sounded so nice, when the jade green launched This year I added it to the basket and checked it out immediately. I previously owned an epiphone les Paul standard and a beginner's strat imitation, the strat lacked growl and the les Paul was missing some depth. As always the packaging and shipping from thomann was perfect and prompt.
On first opening the package it was the beauty of the finish that initially struck me. The natural wood on the rear is gorgeous. Upon plugging it in the volume, depth and sustain from the clean channel was impeccable. With some overdrive it roars into life. There is a bit of bleed between the pickups which seems to enhance rather than detract.
Overall, it's a great size, has huge tonal flexibility, stays in tune, is solidly built and just cries out to be played. Couldn't be more happy with my purchase and the service

Love it!
Claesson, 25.05.2019
The first thing that comes to my mind is character. This guitar have character! No guitar collection is complete without a Gretsch ;-).
The G5220 is one of my most played guitar, just a tad less played than my Gibson Les Paul Standard. Its a bit lighter than the LP standard (its a weight recused 2018).
I cant find anything bad to say about the actual guitar. I love it!
But... the last 4 month I have bought 7 guitars, all new (5 from Thomann). The Gretch was not setup at all, no love, just assembled ant then sendt to me (Ill guess). The neck vas not bad, but everything else had to be adjusted. It tok me less than 15 minutes to make it play perfect!
Any how, Ill give it 5 stars on all points. And if you not sure if you should buy a quality les paul copy or this Gretsch, Buy Gretsch :-)
