  • Second Guitar

    As reviewed by Music Freak on 10/23/2006

    I first started playing guitar with a crappy old strat type guitar. After my first year I saw this guitar on sale for $400. I bought it in a blink of an eye. Since then it has been a OK guitar. I found that it gets a ton of action, and the string are a bit hard to change. Otherwise its been pretty good. The built-in wah bar is pretty cool and unique and the pick ups are pretty nice. Over all I do not recommend this guitar for a few reasons. For the price, $500, you can buy better guitars in my opinion. Such as a Fender strat, or a Epiphone Les Paul. The only reason I got this guitar is because it was on sale for $400 which was a pretty good deal. It you found this on sale for the much then I would recommend you to buy it. but for $500 I wouldn't.

  • Seriously Read This

    As reviewed by Pieholdensuite on 8/13/2007

    Ok there was some other user that reviewed this guitar that really didn't seem to understand basic guitar terminology let alone the theory behind baritones. Baritones are built to offer two voices in one guitar, with bass-like lower registers and guitar-like highs. As a result they tend to have a slightly higher action and require some getting used to. The bigger bottom end of baritones is very desireable especially if you use a set of strings designed for the guitar/bass hybrid jerry jones designed years ago, this particular type of strings, while very heavy offer standard tuning on a baritone scale. No new fingerings or registers to get used to, whis is a huge convenience. The drawbacks of this model are its bare boned construction including a bolt on neck instead of set neck construction. Gretsch makes great guitars with phenomenal sounding pickups however the bolt on neck joint and heel seem to mystify them, on this guitar it isnt very smooth or comfortable. The finish is catchy and smooth and holds up well, but would probably be more attractive with a bit more flash. The tremolo should probably be used sparingly seeing as the bridge is a standard tuneomatic instead of a roller bridge and will likely throw the guitar out of tune on dive-bombs. All in all though this guitar can be appreciated for its ruggedness and its goal of bringing baritone tuning and playing scale to a modest price level. Test it out, its not too bad a play.

  • Great Instrumental Guitar !

    As reviewed by HillBilly Kid on 4/2/2009

    This guitar is ideal for playing instrumentals by the likes of Rob EG, Duanne Eddy, etc. Songs like the Theme from Peter Gunn, etc, where deep, gutsy riffs are required. The Bigsby tremolo is perfect for this kind of playing. I'm pretty happy with mine, and if you don't have problems playing a bass guitar, then the high action shouldn't pose too much of a problem.
