Wunderschöne, vielsaitige Bariton Gitarre
galoon, 11.06.2021
Die Gretsch Baritone ist super verarbeitet, perfekt designed und was man hier für diesen Preis bekommt ist wirklich unglaublich.
Danke an Thomann für dieses tolle Angebot.
Made in China macht mich immer skeptisch und eigentlich mag ich das nicht. Ich wäre sofort bereit den doppelten Preis für ein derartig tolles Produkt zu bezahlen, wenn man in freien Ländern inklusive aller Menschenrechte produzieren würde.
Die Gitarre klingt sehr gut, klar, definiert und hat ordentlich Sustain in allen Lagen. Sie eignet sich genauso für Cool Jazz als auch für ordentliche Verzerrung.
Es handelt sich hier um ein eigenes Instrument. Tonal irgendwo unter der Gitarre, aber trotzdem Gitarre, dass, vor allem bei verzerrtem Sound eigene Einstellungen am Amp bzw. Software braucht. Ist aber kein Problem. Bisschen weniger Bass und schon sind "die Schuhe weg" und man merkt gar nicht, dass man eine Quinte(oder mehr) tiefer liegt.
Die sehr lange Mensur (im Vergleich zu anderen Bariton Gitarren) macht dieses Instrument zu einer kleinen Herausforderung. Ich als Bassist bin da weniger schreckhaft, kann mir aber vorstellen, dass ein Gitarrist hier erstmal die Finger sortieren muss und ein bisschen braucht, sich in die 1.Lage vorzuarbeiten. Das lohnt sich aber. und dafür kann man dann locker in B A oder sogar G stimmen ohne das der Sound "matscht" und die Intonation ist grossartig - viel besser als eine runtergestimmte "normal" lange Gitarre.
Mit den 2 Reglern und dem 3-way-toggle-switch kann man in gewöhnter Gretsch Qualität den Sound einfach und direkt justieren.
Fazit:
Ich kann diese Gretsch hier nur loben und wärmstens weiterempfehlen. Wenn man neue, Jazz, Metal oder deep Desert Sounds kreieren will, oder die coolen open E Riffs halt nur in B oder A singen kann (wie ich) dann ist man damit perfekt ausgerüstet.

Guitare Baritone/Basse VI très agréable
Maxime2021, 10.04.2021
Initialement prévue pour être une guitare baritone au jeu de cordes D'Addario EXL157, j'ai modifié sans problèmes cette Gretsch pour la faire devenir une Basse VI au jeu de cordes D'Addario EXL156. Je vais plutôt m'orienter vers une évaluation sur sa période basse VI étant donné qu'elle n'a conservé ses premières cordes seulement le temps d'une journée.

Basse très agréable et très polyvalente, le son est top et les cordes se sont installées sans soucis. La longueur du manche est idéale pour tout bassiste cherchant une guitare ou inversement. Le bon entre-deux.

J'ai acheté le produit "à l'aveugle", sans le tester ni même un quelconque modèle similaire et je suis satisfait, même si je recommande tout de même de se préparer à la forme très plate du bas du corps. Et un peu le poids mais c'est parce que je fais 50kg pour 1m66...

Musicalement :)
