I bought this model mainly for its colour and also it was positively reviewed on a number of sites. I have other Gretsch guitars in a much higher price range but this one is impressive. Less trebley than my other two due to the pick ups, they have more of a rocky tone. Excellent instrument and great value.
Beautifully made, pleasing to the eye, excellent sound and a joy to use.
Beautiful guitar, especially finished in Azure blue with gold hardware. Excellent value and sits well for something different in my collection of various Gibson and Fenders.
Fantastic product for great value
