well worth the price


from Norfolk, Virginia

This is a beautiful well crafted guitar. I has all the quality and good looks of a higher priced Gretsch. I have owned a couple of the older Gretschs and this one holds it's own alongside them. It has that original Gretsch sound with an ample amount of controls to cover just about anything you want. Mine has a beautiful flame orange top and it gets plenty of comments when I have it on stage. The Bigsby adds a coolness factor that completes the look and sound. Get yourself one before they realize it should sell for more and raise the price!


Another great playing guitar from Gretsch

By larry baldwin

from Chester, Va.

I just recieved my G5436T Pro Jet guitar today from GS. Within 20 min.I had it pluged in playing it. What a super guitar the sound, the workmanship, the quality. I beleive for the price and whay you get, it would be hard to beat. If I had any quams, I would had rather have the burandy in a shiny finish. It is like a flat finish but at the same time this is one good looking guitar. If you want a nice guitar, buy this one, you want be sorry you did. It's got a new reduced price.
