Picked this unit up used, was told it was purchased at L&M in Fredericton...I was really in the market for a telecaster, or a strat, but I seen this come up in a local buy and sell for a ridiculous price, cuz it was late in the evening, I was unable to make the 1hr drive to get it, so I asked the seller to hold it, not knowing for sure I wanted it, but when I got there and tried it out, WOW, I was blown away for a guitar at this price point, even if they were retailing for $300 more I still would have been impressed. It needs a set up and a new set of strings, it also has a couple very minor finish flaws, but for a players axe, this thing is killer!! Sounds surprisingly "Fenderesque", more like the P90s in my Gibson, or the twang my '51 vintage modified has....great purchase, likely a keeper, and has given me the Gretsch fever!! don't hesitate to grab one at this price.

Wow, wow, wow. I came into the shop, and the silver sparkle top finish with the chrome hardware caught my eye immediately, however I was scared to ask how much it was, assuming the famously large Gretsch price tag would attached to it. I casually glanced as I was taking it down and thought I read "1370". At that price, I was very impressed with the sound and thought very seriously about expanding my budget. Certainly played better than my les paul, and to me has a much richer and fuller tone with more versatility than many of the American made stratocasters I had been playing earlier that day. Starting to get serious, I took a better look at the price tag; when I read "$370", I just about fell over. It was almost as shocking as the "Made in China" that was stamped on the back. Unphased, I couldn't whip out my credit card fast enough. After I made the tiresome journey of finding a case that fit (buyer beware, it doesn't fit any normal cases), I carefully set it in the back of my car and drove home to play it. Nevertheless, I haven't stopped playing it, and my bandmates weeped at the sheer beauty of this god-like instrument. Price= unbeatable. Sound= unbeatable. Brand= cool as can be, and none of your scumbag buddies have one. Overall= I'm in love.
