Gretsch G6120 Eddie Cochran
29.04.2015
The pickups are a P90 and Dynasonic as you would expect on this model and are both very good individually, both sound excellent, combining them gives a very nice tone and they are well matched. The Bigsby works very well for shimmery tones and has always returned to give properly tuned strings each time I have used it. The tone pot is very responsive, you can actually hear a difference as you slowly move the knob up and down.

The guitar is well made, there are no visible flaws anywhere, certainly no knots or flaws in the wood itself and the spray finish is superb. I went over the finish thoroughly and could not find any trace of missing finish or pinhole bubbles anywhere.

The frets are well seated and are all finished well with no sharp edges whatsoever.

Unplugged the guitar is pretty loud and has a nice tone to it.

The only very minor problem I see is that the strings are not evenly spaced at either side of the fretboard but this could have been caused by movement of the bridge in transit as the guitar was downtuned, I have not tried moving the bridge yet as it really is not that much of a problem (only about 1 or 2 mm off at the most).

Très bien mais attention ...
Eric001, 17.12.2018
Je n'ai pas acheté cette guitare pour la signature mais pour ses caractéristiques : pouvoir passer d'une guitare hollowbody rockab à jazz en un switch.

La guitare est très belle et sonne correctement en acoustique ( pas trop fort et propre avec les cordes d'origine )

Les sonorités électriques sont très bonnes et très typées. Le Dynasonic est inimitable et le P-90 fait le job, bien que je le trouve un peu trop éloigné des cordes.
Attention : le niveau de sortie est très faible sur cette guitare et je dois pousser mon Deluxe Reverb fort pour cruncher , donc une pédale est la bienvenue pour le rockab.
Le contôle de tonalité est efficace mais non linéaire ce qui signifie qu'il faut tourner beaucoup le potentimètre pour arriver à un changement du son , ce dernier venant radicalement.

Le problème vient des caractériqtiques " à l'anciennes " ce qui veut dire " avec les problèmes ":

Le couple bigsby + chevalet ne tient pas l'accord même utilisé sagement , surtout sur la corde de G ( sol ) qui peut perdre 1/2 ton ! Il faut donc changer le chevalet sans doute pour un rockingbar ou autre.
Impossible de jouer Summertime Blues avec le bigsby sans désaccorder la guitare (allez voir les videos de Cochran il ne l'utilise pas non plus sur scène ^^).

Un truc de bien , si vous n'utilisez pas le Bigsby : dès que le bras est rangé en position arrière, il prend appui sur la plaque du vibrato (là où il est gravé "bigsby") , c'est prévu avec un tampon de feutre collé sur le bras pour ne pas faire de rayures. Cela permet d'avoir une guitare parfaitement stable pour jouer autre chose comme du jazz. Bien entendu , à chaque fois il faudra réaccorder la guitare car cela change la tension du vibrato ...

Les mécaniques seront à changer car trop peu précises : elles sont en 1:14 et il faudrait du 1:18 , ça se trouve sur internet mais c'est un billet de 100 et du boulot en plus ... Franchement , cette obstination à vouloir coller aux spécificitées d'origines m'exaspère ...

Bref cette guitare est belle et sonne exactement comme vous le voulez ou rêvez , mais si vous l'achetez pour la jouer sérieusement ( et pas pour l'accrocher au mur à côté d'une photo d'Eddie Cochran ) il faudra prévoir le coût des modifications .
