Excellent value for your money!
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm going to try to write this review as honest as can be. First off I ordered this for a customer from my shop. The plan was to get a guitar that could match both Malcom Young's tone and looks. I've never owned or played any Gretsch guitars so my only knowledge of quality control was by the country it was made in. When it arrived I was blown away at the factory setup. It was setup very well. I've seen Gibsons with worse setups. The filterton pickups sound very good and can match Malcolms tone rather well. This guitar looks, plays and sounds very good! I'm only going to upgrade the TOM bridge and tuners for my customer because that's all this guitar could benefit from. I'm now jealous of my customers guitar and now a Gretsch fan. This guitar won't leave you disappointed.

Suprisingly Great sound and action
What is your opinion of this product?
Very surprised at the sound and quality, especially given the price and place of manufacture. Needed very little tuning out of the box, very lite, awesome look and feel, and the sound and action are very smooth.

Don't Expect This To Function 100% Out Of Box !!
What is your opinion of this product?
looks great and black top FT's do sound much better than older version of the electromatic line...overall workmanship is good,seems on par with the other similarly priced big name import guitars. biggest prob is that the TOM type bridge is not so capable of intonating properly- the E,A and D strings are still significantly 'flat' even with their saddles all the way forward. ...you will absolutely want to buy a better quality replacement bridge with a longer front to back adjustment range if good intonation is important to you. ...it is fixable,so i am keeping it despite there being no excuse for this nonsense these days . this is directed at the manufacturer,btw - AMS is great,very fast free shipping !!

What is your opinion of this product?
The first one that was delivered had a ground problem that produced excessive hum,it was exchanged for a second copy,all of the pots were defective on this one,the volume came on like a light switch and the tone did not work at all. I called FMIC who ownes gretsch and there customer service was absolutely USELESS !!! So the second one was returned for a refund.

Super Guitat for $500
What is your opinion of this product?
Very hi quality, much better than the competition in this price range!
Nice gloss finish. The Black looks good!
Neck a bit wide but nice. Like the master volume control. Spunky pic ups good variety of sounds.
Bright sound even comes with good strings.
Super finish sure beats those faded stain jobs lol
Blows the others away, amazing for the $
Action is good easy to adjust, I made it a little lower.

Huge tone and stunning to look at!
What is your opinion of this product?
The tone on this guitar is huge. The black top Filtertrons are absolutely amazing. I have a $2500 Malcolm Young signature model with Filtertrons and I really can't tell a difference. They sound incredible clean and very raunchy when the gain is turned up a bit. Played a gig this past weekend and played everything from the clean tone on Purple Rain and Wicked Game to scorching blues and rock leads. This guitar cut right through the mix and was a dream to play.
All the switches and pots are perfect. Volume rolls off really well, no sudden drops. Pickup switch is solid and the Bigsby stays in tune once the strings have been stretched a bit. I stretched all the strings, retuned and repeated the night before the gig. No tuning issues at all and intonation was spot on. Strap buttons are the great Gretsch screw on type, the strap is never going anywhere and they look great.
Love the feel of this neck, has a bit of heft to it and you can really dig in with it. Mine has a beautiful finish to it, you can really see and appreciate the wood grain. It's absolutely stunning and I received a lot of compliments on it. The fret wires are all polished perfectly and there are none that don't seat into the fretboard perfectly. No frets sticking out on the neck at all. Tuners hold tune very well once your strings have been stretched a bit.
The tone is incredible, nothing like some of the older Electromatics I've had in the past. Some of those had dull sounding pickups. These suckers sound amazing. Again, I can't hear much difference from my super expensive Malcolm Young model. Gretsch has really stepped up their game with this line. Plays and sounds better than my American Telecaster, it has a special tone; clear and strong. There is no muddiness to these pickups at all, each note sings through in chords and the guitar has amazing sustain when playing leads. Played some old Neil Young and the tone was beautiful with saturated tubes. The guitar even sounds nice when played unplugged, very lively and you can feel it resonate against your chest.
I picked the gold top version and I'm very glad I did. I already have a black and white Les Paul so even though the black and white version looked beautiful I wanted some variation in my collection. I had an older silver sparkle Gretsch double cut and I loved the way it looked, wasn't a fan of the tone of those pickups though. The pictures I could find of this guitar don't really do it justice. It has a nice, deep, sparkle finish that just looks classy and absolutely shines under the lights of a stage. The finish is very deep and has a 3D effect at the right angle. Everything about this guitar is superior to the past models under the Electromatic range. I had a Cadillac Green Elliott Easton Jet that had a pretty nice finish on it but this paint job blows it away. The guitar just screams class and makes you want to play it every time you walk by. My Les Paul, Telecaster, Stratocaster, Taylor are all collecting dust since I bought this guitar.
I was leery to buy another Electromatic after some of the guitars I'd had from them in the past. After reading reviews and understanding the money back guarantee from AMS I decided to give it a go. I'm glad I did. I don't think you can find another guitar with this much tone, this much mojo, feel, finish or playability in this range or even costing much more. The black tops are amazing, as good as the "real" Filtertrons in the $2500 guitars Gretsch offers. Would love a case but at under $600 that wouldn't make any sense without them having to cut corners on the guitar. I'd rather have an amazing sounding, playing guitar and find a case down the road.
Action was great right out of the box. I tuned it, stretched the strings, tuned it, stretched the strings again and then checked the intonation. Spot on. Action is low, no buzzing anywhere on the neck. I've given the Bigsby a workout, especially with the Neil Young stuff, and it holds tune perfectly. Strings "pinged" a bit when I first brought it up to tune but once I had stretched the stings and put a bit of graphite in the nut slots that issue disappeared. The guitar had to go through some pretty nasty temperature changes coming from NJ to GA and brutal temperatures at 30,000 feet in a cargo hold (I had it overnighted via air). No issues whatsoever once the guitar acclimated to my house temp. Guitar feels like it plays itself, no neck dive at all and right hand feels great with fingers resting on the pick guard.
