Overall Rating
Really different look and sounds great!
Your general opinion of this product.
I got this today and I've been playing it four hours non-stop. The action and intonation were perfect right out of the box. I just had to tune it to pitch as it was shipped with it down-tuned a step. Other than that it was perfect- no buzzing up and down on all strings and the action was great and it was in tune up and down the neck. The finish is nice - a dark red. Nice chrome G knobs, chrome knurled strap buttons and Grover tuners keep it in tune. Two pups and volumes for each and a master tone AND a master volume at the front lower half. This is a nice feature that many Gretsch guitars have so you can adjust your neck/bridge volume balance then use this master volume to adjust the overall final volume. The neck is nicely bound and the nut was finished off perfectly with just the right nut slots cut in it and a smooth finish. Overall a great - if unusual looking - guitar.
