General What is your overall opinion of this product? It's an absolutely beautiful looking and sounding guitar. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? It's a Gretsch, so you go into it knowing it's not the ideal guitar for everything, but it rocks the oldies, and you can have a blast playing early Beatles, Stray Cats, or even Chet Atkins, if you can hang with Chet. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It has a nice neck, and it's very light for a guitar of this size. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone was what you expect from the great Gretsch tradition. I had originally bought it to record some Beatles songs and play it on any oldies or whatever, but I rarely play that stuff these days, so the guitar sat there never being touched most of the time. Then I had the idea to set it up for slide guitar, so I jacked up the bridge, put heavy .012 gauge strings on it, reset the intonation, and WOW, what a tone for slide this guitar has! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish I got is walnut, and it looks amazing. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I got plenty of value. Usually, you think big $$$ when it comes to this brand of guitar. I've played a Country Gentleman many times, and there isn't a real noticeable difference. Playability How was the action out of the box? The action was fine, but now that it's set up for slide, I won't be playing any fast licks on it anytime soon.
Well worth the money !!

General What is your overall opinion of this product? This is a very nice looking guitar ! I have big hands and it feels really good when I grab ahold of it. I couldn't beat the price with the easy payment plan they gave me. I put different strings on it as soon as I got it but I just like the elixir extra lites anyways. but this played right out of the box and sounded great. nice tones clean or dirty. I'm very glad to have gotten this guitar and maybe looking forward to getting the 12 string later. thanks guys ! :)
