  • Country Gentleman meets all my expectations!

    As reviewed by Bob The Guitar Player on 6/3/2009

    I have dreamed of owning a guitar like George Harrison's since the 60's. Finally got it. Finish, fretwork, and hardware are all beautifully perfect and work! Beautiful neck, straight as an arrow. I removed the cheap, wimpy strings the guitar came with and loaded it with Gibson Vintage Reissue 11's (I tried 10's and the guitar's sound was lifeless). Had to tap the unpinned bridge into place to set the intonation and it seems to be staying in place..although I'm pretty careful about that. Played my first gig with it last night. Really nice Gretsch tone..exactly what I expected (I had owned a Brian Setzer Nashville for about a year). It's heavy and huge, but I suspect I'll get used to it and my dream is fulfilled. I have no criticisms of this guitar. It may be foreign made but it's as good as my American ES-335, Les Pauls and Strats and I will gig with it regularly. Go and get one!

  • Country Gent...What a Dream

    As reviewed by Rich Bell NYC on 7/23/2010

    I am a professional musician who uses a array of guitars. None of these guitars compare to the sound and tone quality of this Country Gent. I use a Vox AC30 for live shows, and boy this guitar just gives you the feeling that you are in heaven. Playability is perfect! Intonation perfect! Finish and hardware all prefect. This guitar is actually made better that the original US made which always had neck set problems,and binding problems. I just can't say enough about how great this guitar is!

  • What a Dream

    As reviewed by Dr. Dave on 11/23/2009

    The Gretsch Country Gentleman is a dream. It is one of the cleanest sounding guitars I have ever played. If you are into the actual sound of a hollow bodied electric guitar, without mucking it up with effects, this is the guitar for you. It is the perfect compliment to my Teli, LP and Fender Accoustic Electrics. Beatles forever. Dr. Dave
