A Diamond In The Rough

Groovy Szekler, 15.09.2016
My first impression: This is a beautiful guitar. I can find no flaws in the finish. If Maserati or Ferrari designed a guitar it would look something like this. Playing it is another matter--it will not stay in tune, and I have the red hardtail model. I suspect the nut, so off it goes for a professional setup. This is to be expected at this price point so I can't complain. The pickups sound good, especially at the neck position. The bridge pickup I'm not so sure, I might opt for a hotter one. The bridge is OK, but a TonePros wouldn't hurt, this guitar deserves one. The frets badly need polishing, but that's not surprising. Finally, the input jack comes loose and might have to be replaced with a beefier one. These are minor issues, overall I am very happy with this purchase.
Gretsch, please make a 12-string version!
p.s. I installed Phat Cat P90s and the guitar now growls rather than purrs. Highly recommended!

Beautiful and great sounding guitar

Jormsie, 01.03.2018
This guitar is absolutely awesome to play. It looks great, sounds great and is effortless to play. It can even handle heavy distortion without any feedback like regular hollow-bodies. An all-rounder for sure, very versatile.

Out the box the action was a little too high but a little work with the truss rod and the bridge and it handled like a dream. I do have an issue with the nut, the guitar doesn't stay in tune even especially the G string. A little trip to the luthier is needed, even though lubricating the nut helped a lot.
I'd recommend this rather than the one with the licensed Bigsby, since it seemed to me that it's easier to play when comparing the two in a store.(just my 2c)

Pros:
Great sound
Great looks
Easy and fun to play

Cons:
Tuning stability
Neck heavy(consider buying a grippy strap)
