Great guitar

The build quality on this guitar is great for the price. There are some small shortcomings here and there, but no real issues like frets needing work or anything like that. The tuners are not the most responsive ones, but they keep the guitar in tune alright - even with the bigsby. I had some issues with the TOM bridge screws resonating and rattling, but this seems to be a common problem and was easily fixed with some nail polish. The finish on the guitar looks great. The black shiny cover fits perfectly with dark wooden back. The scratchplate comes off with two screws, one near the neck and one on the bottom edge, so removing it won’t leave much marks.

The black filtertrons seem to have a bit PAFfier tone than traditional ones, but they are definitely brighter than normal humbuckers. Pickup height will affect the tone a lot. I’ve played mostly blues and rock with this guitar, and it works great for those genres. No issues with jazzy clean tones either.

In conclusion: Looks and sounds great, but might have some minor issues that come with the price tag.

Amazing for the price

The guitar has a really good finish and a really good sound. For a better performance with the bigsby tremolo I recomend changing the tune knobs to locking knobs simply to handle the tune better, but in the end a really good guitar even if you dont do that change.

Hammer Gitarre zum hammer Preis.

Ich bin von der Gretsch G5230T seit dem ersten Anspielen vollauf begeistert.
Der Sound ist der Hammer. Typisch Gretsch. Meiner Meinung muss sie sich nicht vor den exklusiveren und wesentlich teureren USA Modellen von Gretsch verstecken. Und das bei dem Preis.
Von warmen clean sounds bis erdig, rotzigen rock sounds ist alles drin. Ich kann das Teil nur weiterempfehlen. Selbst die Bandkollegen im Proberaum waren begeistert. Die schiebt den Sound ordentlich an. Unser Basser musste erstmal nachregeln ?Einzige, verschmerzbare Abzüge gibts in der Verarbeitung des Griffbretts.
Hier waren nach kurzem spielen bereits leichte Abfärbungen vorhanden.
Hab das Griffbrett dann nochmals gereinigt und eingeölt. Dann war gut.
Ansonsten ist die Verarbeitung insgesamt und auch die Wahl der Hölzer sehr wertig.
Zu guter Letzt gefällt mir die Optik mega.
Kurz um! Geiles Teil!
