I've had this guitar for about a month and a half now and I'm very impressed with it's quality.
You get a beautifully finished guitar for a very affordable price. It comes in the same price range as an Epiphone and is of a similar quality to those guitars.
I've a tele and an SG and this guitar is somewhere between the two tonally.
If you're hankering for new guitar I'd highly recommend this Gretsch. Considering a Duo Jet would force you to remortgage the house, this guitar allows you to experience the Gretsch vibe and not feel too guilty.

Good sound but less than perfect

This is an extremely nice looking instrument, a stunning beauty. To note that the back is is painted dark brown, so the wood grain cannot be seen. I was not expecting this from the pictures.
There are some traces of oxidation on a few saddles. Tuners are pretty hard to turn and have a somewhat cheap look. The pick ups output the expected powerful Gretsch sound but were too close to the strings, resulting in a muddy tone, and not parallel to the strings. The action was far too high. About half of the frets, on the high side, shows discolouration (yellow) and would need polishing.
The finish is impeccable, no dents, scratches etc. The gold top is absolutely beautiful.
All in all I am happy despite the flaws above, which however I did not find the Epi's in the same price range or less.
