BUY THIS GUITAR
By: JAMES PRESTON from BALTIMORE
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT GRETSCH PICKUPS HAD THEIR OWN SOUND, SO I TRIED OUT THIS GUITAR AND WAS BLOWN AWAY BY THE FILTERTRON PUPS.
THERE'S NOT A SOUND YOU CAN'T REPRODUCE ON THIS GUITAR. I HAVE GIBSONS WITH P-90/S AND PAF PUPS BUT I CAN'T REPRODUCE AS MANY DIFFERENT SOUNDS THAN WITH THIS GRETSCH. LOOK, GO TRY ONE OUT AND YOU'LL AGREE AND THE $$$$ YOU SAVE COULD KEEP YOU IN STRINGS AND THINGS FOR YEARS....THIS GRETSCH CAN SNARL AND GET DIRTY OR CLEAN-UP
WITH JUST A FLICK OF A SWITCH...
YOU'LL BE AMAZED....
Your general opinion of this product.
I'M SOLD. I LOVE THESE FILTERTRON
PUPS AND RECOMMEND THEM FOR ANY GENRE' OF MUSIC. I'M HIGH ON GRETSCH...
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
WHAT'S GREAT, YOU CAN GET BOTH BRIGHT AND DARK. NOT AS DARK AS A GIBSON, BUT YOU CAN GET AS "CHUNKY"
AS YOU DESIRE...
How did the stain or paint job look?
FLAWLESS..I DIDN'T THINK MUCH ABOUT
THE FINISH ON GRETSCH GUITARS UNTIL
I GOT UP CLOSE AND WAS REALLY BLOWN AWAY BY THE METICULOUS WORK.
