Who would have believed even five years ago that a Guitar made in China is better put together than a hand built one fromthe USA. ? Not me. Well things change. The pickups deliver that definitive Gretsch sound, the controls are all fine, there are not faults at all, (none at all) with the neck, nice low action, no sharp edges on the frets, good machine heads and faultless finish. The Neck is hard fixed to the body and the finish is second to none. Controls are all noiseless and there was nothing to do when I got the Guitar. Not even the intonation! We teach, and we always tell pupils to get the best instrument they can afford. The days of buying a cheap guitar to start with are over. Buy one of these, it will last long past people are bored with it. You might have gathered we are impressed. So much so my wife bought one as well.
