this guitar is so playable. I can't put it down.
Delivered quickly. I had questions for thomann customer service regarding the pick up on this product and they answered quickly. Telling me just what I wanted to hear.
Guitar fully set up on arrival, well packaged and quickly despatched.
The guitar sounds amazing unplugged and the D Armons pick up lives up to the hype I heard about it. A great sound. A real quality build with quality components. Hard to beat at this price.
I have to comment on the action on this guitar too. The fret handling is the best I have ever experienced. I can't praise the sound and playability enough. I'm blown away. I can only imagine what the original models from the 1950's were like. I bet they were amazing.
A guitar for life certainly. Excellent plugged and unplugged.

A very striking guitar.

Manuel615, 16.04.2015
Nothing more to get it out of the box, I tuned it and I was not too convinced by the sound, it sounded medium and a little poor, but according to I was playing and the strings settled very nice sound, with many voices according to the technique you use to play it and A lot of response to the dynamics.
The V-mast can be a bit of a stretch if you do not like fat masts, I really like it.
Strings 13-56 are not hard at all.

The finish is a bit rough, but gretsch in theory makes this finish to post, if you are a bit fussy and you look deep you can find some minimal defectop, but in general it is a lot of guitar for little money.

Very versatile sound and even more pickup with a lot of output.
If I had to put some defect would be the diapason, with a wood a bit "rough", although I like the sound it makes when making vibrations, it may not be for everyone.

I have tried genuine 50's guitars and has a very similar tone, but much more versatile, if you play with pua you can get a brilliant tone, with fingers a more muted tone.
Almost like having 3 or 4 guitars in one.

Very happy with this Gretsch, which is the first one I buy the brand, and I think it will not be the last.
