Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? High quality product, nicely set-up with no defects. General Your general opinion of this product. Pleasantly surprised at the workmanship and quality of this relatively inexpensive guitar. It's a keeper! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Nice surprise here. Pickups are great with a good range of tone from clean to crunch. I was originally going to change them out for American Filter Tron's, but I'm in no hurry now. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish blew me away. Very well done, with even paint/stain and nicely fitted binding. No issues here.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I've owned it a couple of months but I think it will stand the test of time very well. General Your general opinion of this product. This guitar is absolutely one of the best I've played. Easy action, great tones and very very comfortable in your hands. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Pickups can range between bright and snappy to soft and jazzy. I play it through an old Fender Super Reverb and it sounds great. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish is absolutely flawless and beautiful.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Quality is top notch, absolutely nothing loose or unattractive. It is a jewel among diamonds. Is was packed with considersation for anything that could happen during transport and to the unknowing it is a floating bridge which means when you get it loosen the strings and tak out that foam under the bridge. Replace the bridge and tune it then set the intonation. Look it up on youtube if you don;t know how. Basically the distance from the nut to the 12 fret will be the same from the 12th fret to the bridge. Basically. General Your general opinion of this product. I was considering the Ibanez Artcore at the time but I decided to go for the tried and true Gretsch. I'm no too much of a twanger but I love my Tamamine 12-string and have fun with my Schecter shredder. I play where I needed something in-between these and this hollowbody was where I needed to go. The Gretsch just seemed more solid feeling and more rich in tone for me than the Ibanes AF75TDG I was considering. Plain and simple I made the right choice. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I am in the process of changing the bridge and pickups to suit the tone I want but you will love the stock tone and some will never change them. I really notice a change when I flick the switch and change pikups, which is not always the case with the guitars I have owned. Of course the amp you run throu gh makes a lot of difference to the sound your getting. I have a Blackstar HT Club 40 which delivers in its all tube richness and tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish is wow. I proudly put it on a stand in the front room. You have to wipe down the dust more but it looks that sharp and mirror like. Trust me, I'm among the first to complain about regrets but I have none because I knew what changes I was going to make before I bought it and I bugdeted those in.
Great Instrument, great sound, good price

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Zero issues so far. The jack has no reinforcement and I'll be putting a jack plate on right away. Other than that, it looks to be great General Your general opinion of this product. This Made in Korea guitar costs about what you would pay for an American made base mode Tele or Strat, high end MIM Fender or the higher end Epi's or Ibanez hollow and semi hollow bodies. For the money, it is a bit pricey. That said, it is an amazing looking and sounding guitar. It's amazing for blues, classic rock, country, punk, alt rock and all of the little niches in between. People are afraid of feedback. Unless you are playing high gain, drop tuned sudge or trying shred through speed metal, the 5120 is perfect. I play with a fair amount of gain or OD and have had no issues. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The guitar was a little subdued, but a pick up replacement was part of the purchase plan. There is some twang and the neck pick up was surprisingly warm and full. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Terrific. It's a hot looking guitar, no getting around it. The wood grain was more visible that I was expecting and it came with the silver pickguard, not the clear one (which was fine by me).
