Smokes the rest
By: Tom from Ames, IA
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Favorite guitar by a long shot. I've got an LP, SG, Strats, Teles and this thing blows them away. With a little boost through the Marshall it has a throaty growl with a touch of Gretsch magic that makes me want to play the thing all day. The ebony fingerboard plays so much smoother than rosewood.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Top notch. Will play anything.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Light compared to the LPs. Comfortable weight, good layout. I like the individual pickup volumes and master volume for blending in a little warmth from the neck.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Amazing. Gretsch sound. It gives that rich feedback that you want without the low howl.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
How was the action out of the box?
Lowered it just a hair.
