The rockstage guitar

Shaio, 27.04.2017
This is it! This is the guitar to be with onstage!

I have to be honest I bought this in large part due to the aesthetics of the silver glitter body and full trust of the many reviews on this absolutely stunning showpiece guitar. The pictures do not do this guitar justice, the glitter finish does stand out like it should.

I didn't expect much from the sound as I have a Fender Strat and Tele. I also own a few Epiphones (Nighthawk, ES339 Pro, Wildkat, Riviera P93) and expect this Gretsch to be among the Epiphones. This being my first Gretsch ever and not really ever tried one out in store, I didn't know what to expect.

But the moment I took it out of its box, the fretboard just feels silky smooth, fast, and the action was spot on. The resonation is as loud as a semi hollow. This baby just feels natural. I'm 5'8" and the size and weight is just right. Everything about it is just right, like a samurai to his favourite katana, the feeling of old shoes and all that.

The machineheads are responsive and parts are absolute quality. If I were to nitpick, the knobs feel a bit loose than I would prefer than to. The pickups are insanely sweet sounding it has its distinct character and tessitura. Wonderful wonderful work. It sounds better than my Strat and Tele and it goes for less than half the price! How is that possible?

I recorded a few songs with just a mic pointing to the guitar. It holds its tune and the sound was naturally acoustic. When plugged into an amp this guitar can both serenade and wail. the pickups don't buzz, the tones are unlike other makes, it's Gretschish. I realised I don't have to tweak the EQs in my DAWs as the tone is well-balanced. I love the kill switch capability as well.

I've had this guitar for months and it has been awhile since I last fell asleep in bed with a guitar strapped around me apart from my first Hohner guitar when I was 14 (almost 20 years ago blimey!). I am tempted to buy the gold finish because I know exactly what to expect in terms of quality from this model.

This guitar has a lot of character sound wise and look wise. I do have one regret after buying this. I should have gotten one with a Bigsby tailpiece. But of course this will be something that I will add to my Gretsch in the near future, I love this guitar so much it feels like an affair. I'll call her Serena.

A great part despite Made in China

Marco D., 05.02.2015
I am a great Les Paul construction fan in the small to medium price segment and have really got a few home numbers. Actually I wanted to get the red Electromatic Jet Club for about 140 euros less, because I felt the price-performance ratio even better. In the end, however, it was also a decision of the optics, since the nice waist inserts as well as the Gretsch-typical-Gurthalter were not present at the very cheap version. Apart from that, the Jet Club has a screwed neck and this one just glued. That just told me more.

When the guitar arrived, I checked and adjusted the typical things. What you do when you have a few orders behind you ;-) Pull screws, adjust string position, etc.

I am in principle very satisfied with the purchase. The quality is for the price in order, the pickup sound absolutely cream (mix of P90 and humbucker, nice bright but still sat). Visually, it is a force.

What remains sublime is the fact that you always pay for the name. I now have various Les Paul copies of different brands (including Epiphone, HK, VGS, SPEAR).

By far the best of the price / performance ratio are from VGS (eruption) and a brand that Thomann (currently) does not lead, namely Spear Guitars (RD Series). Both brands are made in Indonesia and Vietnam. In the area
From 250 to 350 euros I find there Les Paul copies, which in contrast to the Gretsch again make an enormous leap to the top. Although you have saved money monetarily.

Well, as always. Who has the choice, has the agony. I would buy the Gretsch always again and again and can recommend them.
