  • Dear Mr Kenna


    Beautiful retro. Comfy. Bizzarly came with a cancer warning! The world has gone mad!

  • David


    The guitar arrived quickly and well packaged. I tuned the guitar and started playing straight away, was well worth buying the Archtop as it sounds different to my other Gretsch guitars. It has its own sound and fits into my collection well. I always give my guitars a good look over when I buy them so that there are not any blemishes and this one was like the others 'Mint'. The neck is a bit chunkier than usual but I will get used to this the more I play it...no negatives on this guitar as it is a fantastic instrument
