Great guitar at a great price
One of the best guitars I have ever bought and I own Gibson’s and fenders (which have all had a lot of £ spent on them for mostly fretwork) and this honestly puts them to shame for value for money. The sounds, workmanship and feel are all here, incredible. I can’t put it down! It was perfect straight out of the box, and I have read that line in the past in other places but have never have had that experience until now. So nice not to have to spend another load of ££ on getting it set up and frets sorted (flawless, and I’m picky) I am now a total gretsch convert! If they carry on making them to this standard it definitely will not be the last one I own!
Fantastic guitar. Defiantly a fender meets Gibson Sort of sound. The fit and finish are superb, I have guitars costing 5 or 6 times as much which aren’t finished as well as this. It plays fantastic straight out the box. Stays in tune, looks great. A 100% keeper. This lives up to all the hype it’s been getting and I honestly wouldn’t feel short changed purchasing the same guitar for twice the price. Buy it
Great guitar, looks and feels well made, sounds fab.
Straightforward delivery, item well packed, delivered on time. Great price for guitar and Great service.
