    Comments about Gretsch Guitars 9555 New Yorker Archtop Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is Chinese-made replica of an early '50s Gretsch New Yorker with a DeArmond neck pickup and a volume control. The body is light weight, the round fat neck typical of the period. Some of us who play old jazz like that feel. The pickup is warm and full. I play through a straight tube amp without tone controls, so this guitar sounds just like a guitar should.
    The Chinese do a good job. I know a number of young jazz musicians who can't afford a vintage Gibson who play similar models. Of course you'll have to do a thorough set-up, but you'd do that on a new Gibson, too. The frets are sharp and need dressing. A neck adjustment is likely. But overall a good investment.
    I play swing jazz on an old Gibson archtop electric, but this little Gretsch is an excellent addition when I want a traditional archtop acoustic sound.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars 9555 New Yorker Archtop Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've wanted an arch top for quite some time. It's the acoustic that I've never had. The floating pickup gives me the best of both worlds. And, the price was right for an old, semi-retired married man.

      I like the guitar, but did not arrive in quality condition.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars 9555 New Yorker Archtop Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I like the guitar but it is probably a bit overpriced. Not enough to trouble me though. Package arrived with a large puncture on one side of the box that fortunately did not hit the guitar. Whatever punctured the package went half way through. Again...very lucky.

      The guitar itself had some quality issues. The pick guard was so loose that it had nearly fallen off. I had to fully remove it and line it back up, then screw it in myself. Not a problem for me...but not a good indication either.

      The pick guard is slightly scratched up, brand new.

      The guitar is made in China, which fundamentally does not bother me. I have bought some very well made things from China and I have bought some terrible things from China. The Chinese company that has been contracted by Gretch to build these apparently has little to no QA.
