Being a big fan of that 'great Gretsch sound', when I seen the Gretsch G5435LH Pro Jet Black offered on Thomman.de I duly saved up and purchased it.
From when it arrived (swiftly too), I was astounded by the tones you can achieve from the Black Top Filtertron pickups, which can range from twangy, rockabilly tones to growling overdrive. The craftsmanship on the instrument is excellent as well and the hump-block inlays on the fret board and the outer-binding are very nice features.
For such an affordable Gretsch guitar, the tones you get from the pickups are second to none. I use this for late 50s rock'n'roll, rockabilly and rhythm and blues as well as 60s beat, garage, surf and blues.
This is an excellent guitar that offers great retro looks as well a great vintage sound. I would highly recommend for the above genres of music!
This guitar arrived pretty much ready to go. A quick tune and away we went. It looks beautiful and the sound matches it. I love it. I've only had it a week, but so far it is a really fine instrument. I highly recommend it to lefties. We don't have much choice for quality gear at this price point, so this is a real find.
The packaging and shipping were superb. It was double boxed with plenty of bubble wrapping to keep it all secured.
