Like all Electromatic guitars, it delivers the fearless and electrifying authenticity that has set Gretsch apart as the quintessential rock ‘n’ roll guitars from the very beginning. It’s the sound of honor itself—play proud.

Reviews From Buyers
I bought this guitar. I am ashamed as a professional musician with over 30 years of playing experience , whom has managed Music Stores selling high-end and vintage guitars , A Certified FENDER Technician who has worked at Guitar Center spent almost $1000.00 (with case- just HAD to have the "cool" case) on an absolute piece of garbage . Let me Qualify if this review will be of benefit to you - I am not a "guitar snob" I simply know where and what to look for in a PROFESSIONAL Instrument . This IS NOT one in my opinion. I would not consider gigging with this guitar. That Said, I will add this: IF you think "Epiphone" (pick most any model) is a suitable, fun and affordable guitar that meets your needs you will disagree with my opinion - but you'll also like this guitar. We now live in a world where bright and shiny are more related to peoples reviews and opinions about guitars than the actual quality. "It is what it is" sums up this overpriced purchase. The guitar is stunning in photographs and in the store it attracts attention like a Cadillac . I made my mistake this way. A few honest and real issues those of you who are on the fence might like to know before you buy ; 1). the hardware (all of it) is terrible quality, it has the feel of plastic painted gold (and in many cases is) Beware of thinking because it looks vintage-it must be like vintage - perfect example are the tuners on the guitar. At first glance attractive "Waverly" looking gears - "pot" metal absolutely useless. The bridge is the same way, it rattles and sounds terrible it also feels incredibly cheap. The "tusk"(ish) nut doesn't fit all the way across the neck, as if no one ever checked the dimensions to see if they even match. These are pre-fabricated parts, the dimensions don't change. Its not a "bad-set-up" , the parts just don't fit. If you keep the guitar you'll want to change all of these parts immediately.
