Gretsch® Instrument Limited Lifetime Warranty FMIC warrants your Gretsch brand instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as it is owned by the original retail purchaser, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY.

Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge.

  • Orange you glad it's not a Gibson?

    As reviewed by Matt on 6/7/2010

    This guy sounds amazing. It's a totally different sound than the Duo Jet and the Les Paul, and I love the bold look. This and the Penguin have to be 2 of the finest Gretsch guitars I have ever played. Plug one in, you'll be inpressed. If there was anything bad to say it would be that it's a little bigger than I like, and heavier as well.

  • Luv it !!!

    As reviewed by Michel Rousseau on 4/28/2010

    I am not really a Gretsch guy. I only owned 2 since the sixties and never played them live. This is about to change. Perfect action, great tone and a beauty...!!! Perfectly set up out a the box, ready to rock and blues too. Still love my Fenders and Gibsons but this one has her own personality.
