This is a high quality instrument! The new Filtertron pickups produce that vintage Gretsch sound and the colour is right out of the fifties. A joy to play, it'll take you back ?

This guitar got my attention at the store due to its nice "vintage" aspen green finishing. I decided to give it a try and was impressed by the following: a) Craftsmanship: I could not find anything wrong with the guitar. The 2016 model has an "aged" multi-ply binding that matches the aspen green perfectly. Fretboard was impeccable. 5-ply maple, good quality rosewood (fretboard), pearloid inlays and GraphTec nut. b) Playability: comfortable neck, frets with rounded edges, great action and no buzz. c) Sound and electronics: the black top filter tron PUs have lots of twang and the Gretsch sound I was looking for. I like the midrange as well. They sound very dynamic and responsive. These are great PUs. Pots are not CTS, they are made in Korea but no concerns so far. If needed, it would cost me almost nothing to replace the pots with CTS ones and install a Switchcraft output jack. d) Hardware: good hardware. No issues and no need to replace anything. Bigsby B60!!! The 2016 model plays, sounds and looks great right out of the box. It sounds amazing with my Vox and Carvin amps. This Gretsch guitar is proof that you don't need a very expensive guitar to sound great, in the studio or on stage. Just be careful with feedback as this is a full hollow-body guitar. I have many guitars (classical, acoustic and electric), made in USA, Europe and Asia. I have bad g.a.s. and always look for a good deal based on quality, playability, sound and value. Please trust me. This is indeed a great guitar. I couldn't resist and brought one home. By the way, I never sell or trade my guitars, so my kids will also enjoy this beauty. Thanks Fender/Gretsch/Korea for another great instrument.

The nut might need to be replaced after a couple months. But best gretsch I've brought.
