noname123, 14.08.2013
good guitar but badly setup. made for a disappointing first play but after having to do the work myself it was much better. nut was uneven so chords where difficult. pickup is very good.

Heureuse surprise
Byrd, 14.10.2014
Reçu ce jour, j'ai tout déballé devant Monsieur UPS, pour bien vérifier l'état des choses. Impeccable ! triple emballages, sarcophage en poly machin, plus double carton d'emballage.
La bête maintenant, fini parfait, pas de coulure, de trace de colle, de flaw.
Il était réglé, peut être un luthier reverra le D aigüe mais c'est pour pinailler.
L'instrument est monté en DAdario.
Le son : très agréable , assez rond, puissant quand on l'asticote.
branché sur un petit ampli (Roland Xcube), son très propre, sortie à un niveau n'exigeant pas de DI.
J'ai par ailleurs un dobro de chez Dobro.
On ne peut comparer deux instruments dont le rapport de prix est de 1 à 3 ..... mais
le Gretsch n'a pas pas à rougir, le Dobro a un son moins rond plus fin, plus d'harmoniques, mais c'est mon appréciation subjective.
Je sens que je vais bien m'amuser.

Prima Instrument!
Ulrich391, 26.01.2015
Schöner warmer und ausgeglichener Dobro Sound klingt aus dem Instrument! Vielleicht nicht ganz so laut wie meine Recording King, aber dafür sehr angenehm zu bespielen und viel ausgeglichener.
Die Saitenlage passt exakt, somit spielt die linke Hand mit sehr wenig Kraftaufwand und ohne zu ermüden.
Die matte Lackierung gefällt! Sehr schön und praktisch, da das Instrument dadurch weniger rutscht.
Das Fishman Pickup klingt einwandfrei und die aufgezogenen d'Addario Saiten passen prima zum Instrument. Die Stimmmechaniken sehen zwar nicht wirklich nach extrem hochwertig aus, sind aber prima leichtgängig und präzise.

Nun mein einziger Kritikpunkt: Auf dem Karton steht "geprüft und getestet". Dies kann nun aber nicht wirklich ernst gemeint sein! Als ich das Ding auspackte fiel sogleich auf, dass irgend was in der Gitarre lose herumfällt und beim Spielen komische Geräusche verursacht. Da ich lieber Musik mache als Rücksendungen verpacke, Pakete zur Post bringe und auf eine Ersatztlieferung warte, musste erst mal geschraubt werden. Also Werkzeugkoffer bemüht, Saiten und Saitenhalter weg montiert, Abdeckung gelöst und Spider sowie Konus vorsichtig herausgehoben. Siehe da: Ein veritables Holzstück wurde bei der Fabrikation in der Gitarre vergessen und segelte lose im Resonanzkörper herum.
Auch die Einstellung der Spiderbrücke auf dem Konus war völlig daneben und verursachte heftige Scheppergeräusche - auch hier war noch mal ein wenig Schrauben von Nöten. Also von "geprüft und getestet" kann keine Rede sein und für die Nichthandwerker unter den Kunden bedeutet das ein veritables Problem.
Bestimmt hätte Thomann diskussionslos ein Ersatzinstrument geliefert. Doch wie gesagt, man möchte doch lieber Musik machen als Pakete schicken :)
Ansonsten bin ich restlos zufrieden mit dem prima Instrument, das seinen Preis absolut wert ist!

LE SON DOBRO pour un prix très raisonnable !
Richard7434, 15.09.2015
J'ai eu un Dobro (de marque) dans les années 80, je trouve celui-ci au moins aussi bon, il me semble même qu'il est plus puissant. Le son est parfait, Jerry Douglas like!
La finition irréprochable, il est beau. L'étui au velours violet fait des jaloux autour de moi :-)
Le fishman fonctionne bien, avec assez de niveau, pour la partie électro-acoustique, et le rendu est assez fidèle, avec peut-être une pointe en trop dans les aigus, mais facilement corrigé à l'ampli. Pas de larsen. Je compte le sonoriser en mix avec un overhead sur scène, pour maitriser le gain supplémentaire lors des chorus. Ce sera parfait je suis sûr.
Merci Gretsch pour cet instrument de qualité à ce prix abordable ! Livraison Thomann irréprochable, dans les délais et bien emballé, avec tous les accessoires ad-hoc.
