Excellent built quality, great pickups and licensed Bigsby vibrato. Zero nut looks little bit cheaper, but it does the job. Tuning stability is in normal, you don't have to have a roller bridge for stay in tune, but I recommend it if you want to you bigsby a lot. Tone circuit is interesting, master volume works great and clean the crunch sound excellent. No feedback problems, very resistant from feedback, excellent crunch sound with overdriven tube amp. Tuning machines looks fabulous. Bridge is fixed and it holds on exact place where it should be. Very nice job, finish and great sound for the price. Feels like much more expensive instrument, for that price. I recommended this guitar, and I'm very satisfied. I'm guitar player with more than 22 years of playing experience.

It makes me smile
21.11.2016
I have used the SA Yamaha series of guitars for many years. I played professionally in clubs and pubs throughout London for app. 27 years. The SA yamahas tend to be light and airy. I am now 72 and I find I am playing with a little more aggression and a bit raunchy so I treated myself to the Gretsch Snow Crest (G5422TG).
Every time I pick it up and play it I smile. It is just so good to play and after the Yamahas I have a bit of a learning curve. Gretsch have a different action which takes a bit of time to get used to. But am getting there. It won't take long.
I would recommend this guitar to anybody from complete beginners to professionals. It is also very easy to set up to suit any style of playing. I use extra light optima 24 carat gold strings 8-38. I would recommend a light gauge string for beginners.

Ich habe vor kurzem die Gretsch erhalten und dachte, dass mich als altem und erfahrenen Musiker kaum mehr eine Gitarre wesentlich beeindrucken kann. Nun, nach einem Monat intensivem Spiel (leider nur im Probenraum) fasse ich zusammen:
Die Abwicklung von Thomann war perfekt und ein kurzfristig bestehendes Preisproblem wurde kulant und rasch erledigt.
Die Gitarre ist eine perfekte Ergänzung zu meinen Instrumenten, klassischer "Gretsch-Sound" besonders für Blues und Rocknummern, spiele dies über einen Modeling Amp (Boss Katana) und habe dafür nach einigem Herumprobieren einen geilen "Röhrensound" gefunden.
Die Gitarre kam schon gut eingestellt und war nach wenigen kleinen Adaptierungsarbeiten sofort spielbereit.
Die Verarbeitung lässt keine Mängel erkennen, und die Optik in weiß begeistert mich jedesmal aufs neue. Werde noch einen goldbeschichteten Saitensatz aufziehen, denn auch Kitsch will stilvoll gepflegt werden. Außerdem will ich testen, wie so ein 8er Satz klingt und zu spielen ist, habe bisher bei der Strat nur mit 9er Sätzen gearbeitet.
Fazit: ein Klangerlebnis mit einem optischen Erscheinungsbild, das meine Erwartungen restlos erfüllt.
Danke auch an das Thomann Team für die gute Beratung und Betreuung.
Ergänzung nach einigen Wochen intensiver Nutzung: voll zufrieden, keine Mängel erkennbar. Mein Versuch mit dem 0,08 Saitensatz ist (erwartungsgemäß) gescheitert, habe ganz schnell wieder auf 0,11 gewechselt. Na ja, Alter schützt vor Torheit nicht, oder so ähnlich!!!

On va commencer par les choses qui fâchent (je vous rassure, on va faire vite....) : je ne comprendrais jamais comment un instrument à environ 1000 ¤ soit livré sans étui !

Voilà, maintenant que l'on s'est débarrassé des inepties de notre magnifique société de consommation, nous pouvons passer aux choses sérieuses. Alors, elle vaut quoi cette Gretsch ?

Certes la fabrication est Coréenne, ce qui peut se remarquer avec une loupe dans la finition des filets et du binding mais l'ensemble est magnifique. Le vernis est nickel et l'accastillage doré sur blanc donne vraiment quelque chose de classieux, rock n' roll et qui claque.

Le son à vide est très bas médium et tout cela se retrouve lorsqu'on la branche. Un niveau de sortie moyen et équilibré sur les 2 micros qui permettent de sonner en vrai clean (sans écrêter) sans problème. Mais c'est lorsqu'on lui colle une bonne OD au c.. que ça grogne comme il faut tout en restant défini. C'est super efficace jusqu' à la fuzz bien crade qui lui va à ravir.

Un dernier petit bémol, le Bigsby c'est beau mais ça fait mal à l'accordage. La belle mériterai peut être des mécaniques à blocage mais se serait moins vintage...on ne peut pas tout avoir !
