My Swiss Army Knife!!

What is your opinion of this product?
I'm a pro full time player, and I travel. I have been looking (unhappily) for one guitar that can fit many genres for the different gigs I have to take. I was a long time Fender guy, then went PRS. I was loving the Starla I had with split coils. But on a whim, I saw this Gretsch BT and loved the color/profile/name. I'm in a band with the initials BT so I honestly was looking cause of the comic factor first. The price is decent enough to gamble, and I'm glad I did!! The Broad Tron pickups are killer. Very warm when you play light and brighter/bite-ier when you dig in. The neck feels great and is a bit of a shortscale - which I love cause I sing and smaller scale is less guess work as your face is in a microphone and you can't glance down as often. The finish is beautiful on mine as it's not gawdy red but more of a deep wine color. Highly recommend

Super guitar!
What is your opinion of this product?
Exc. workmanship, just a gorgeous guitar! Great-playing comfortable neck. Super nice, versatile tone for rock or blues. These Gretsch Electromatics are a fantastic value and play, sound, and look like guitars costing much, much more.

Great Gretsch sound at a great price
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a really good guitar for the money. You really get allot for your money. The sound is really good for classic rock. Fit and finish are nice for a guitar made in China. I've never been a fan of instruments made in China but I have to say this guitar is exceptional. The only drawback for me were the tunners. I replaced mine and I am alot happier for it.

Way beyond my expectations!
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this guitar because I just wanted to add something different. I must say the Casino gold is quite sexy in person!. It plays, sounds, and feels better than most guitars 3 times the cost! The build on it is flawless (only time will tell as I havent had it long) I did not have to adjust anything right out the box. It stays in tune better than any MIM Tele, Strat, or Epi I have ever played. The pickups sound great through my Mesa and my Marshall. While it is NOT the "Les Paul killer" it's closer than one would think for a 500$ guitar. I have found myself playing this one more than any other, live and at home. If you are on the fence about buying this guitar...do it and you will not regret it! Also as always AMS is Top Notch as always! I buy 90 percent of my stuff from them. Great customer service. I have been dealing with them for at least 25 years...yes back when you ordered from a mail catalog!

Should cost more...
What is your opinion of this product?
I've played a lot of "high end" guitars and I've played a lot of guitars in this price range. What a value! I could find no flaws in the finish. It had a better than average setup on delivery. Sounds great! I mean that.. IT. SOUNDS. GREAT. Gretsch has set a new standard. Are you on the fence about dropping a little over $400 on the G5220? Here's what you do: Don't get that mocha latte on your way to work every morning—make coffee at home. With that money you save, take advantage of American Musical Supply's payment plans. Easy. Affordable. Brilliant! Rock now, pay later... thanks AMS!
