General Your general opinion of this product. Here are my thoughts good and not so good: Let's start with the most important "not so good": No case, a guitar this great looking needs one, factory recommends Gretsch 6242L for a 17" hollowbody msrp $149.99 not avail on AMS unfortunately. Knobs are plastic it would be worth it to upgrade to the Gretsch gold plated knobs. It's made in Korea, so expect very minute cosmetic flaws, mine was a ultra tiny scratch in the neck binding and paint on the 2nd fret, and there was what looked like lint that got onto the paint while it was wet on the bottom side of the neck around the 3rd fret. But again, it was ultra tiny, and if I wasn't going over it witrh a magnifying glass, would never have caught it. Ok the Good, outside of that this guitar looks amazing, my chic saw it and said it was the sexiest music instrument she had ever seen, it sounds great, the sustain is money. My band plays traditional rock n roll, and this is perfect tone for it.
