    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5445T Electromatic Double Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

    I love this guitar! It is very versatile. The sound is Gretsch all the way. The body is strong, the resonance through the body is amazing. I did have to tune it when it arrived, but the feel and action were perfect. It is live and so easy to play I'm amazed every time I pick it up and play. I have only been playing for a year and this guitar makes me feel that I have been fighting my first guitar this whole time. Great guitar at a great price! Oh yeah, the finish is fantastic too.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5445T Electromatic Double Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

    The build quality is remarkable for a guitar in this price range. Hardware is much better quality than expected. Pickups sound pretty good, but prefer the newer HiLo'Trons on some of the center block models. I replaced the Bigsby B50 with a Bigsby B70. There was nothing wrong with it, I just thought it looked more aesthetically pleasing. I own a few more expensive Gretsch guitars, and the quality seems to be consistent across the line. This a a great little guitar.

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5445T Electromatic Double Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

        This is probably the best valued guitar on the market today. Superb craftsmanship, killer looks, resonant lows, biting highs, perfect intonation, and all for less than half the price of its competition.

        I play mostly alternative, blues, and jazz, so I spend a lot of time on the smooth-and-creamy neck pickup. However, the bridge pickup has plenty of crunch and is perfectly suited for grittier tunes. The fingerboard is very comfortable and I have no problem moving around on it.

        I don't have too much to say besides that. It's a stellar piece of equipment, and if it were stolen or lost, I'd buy another in a heartbeat. I'm obsessed with it, and if you're after a beatiful, flavorful tone, you will be too.

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5445T Electromatic Double Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

            Bought this guitar as I always wanted a Gretsch, didn't want to spend $2K, and the reviews regarding build quality, etc on this guitar were excellent. I received the guitar and truthfully I was disappointed. Frets had some buzzing, came with no paperwork nor protective cover on the pick guard etc. I contacted musicians friend to set up a return and spoke to Thomas....disappointed as I was really looking forward to owning this Gretsch.

            Thomas was great! He feared I was sent a returned guitar by mistake and offered to ship a replacement next day air. He asked me to check the replacement and run it through its paces and if I was satisfied to then return the old one, or both for a full refund.

            I am glad I did! The replacement was everything I had hoped for and more- beautiful finish, perfect neck joint, great workmanship and perfect intonation (took to my luthier, he told me he would just be taking my money to pay him for a set up)

            Ive boughten and owned many guitars over the last 35 years, many I still own that are valued at much much more then this model. For the price, This is is the best value I've ever been involved with in a new guitar since I bought my Rick 12 string back in 81 from a sales associate that was fired the next day for selling stuff under cost after an argument with his boss!

            Don't even think twice...buy this...and buy it from MF where they value the customer after the sale as much as before!

            Thanks again to Thomas!

            Best Guitar I've owned

            By Justin Myers

            from Corpus Christi, Texas

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5445T Electromatic Double Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

            This guitar sounds way more expensive than it is! That great Gretsch sound is definitely present in it. I bought the gold top version and the finish is truly amazing. The neck is very maneuverable and great reaching up until about the 13th or 14th fret where the body joint is, then it starts getting large and bulky. Selector switch offers a crisp and audible tone difference, but the knobs are not really functional, it seems like every knob is the same one in a different place. But that doesn't change the fact that this is an awesome sounding guitar(sounds very vintage and fuzzy with distortion) I'm a big fan of jack whites playing style and sound and this guitar has no problem producing those thick bassy distorted fuzz sounds. The Bigsby is very nice, I've always hated vibrato bars due to where I rest my wrist when I play interfering with the consistency of the sound, but no problems with the Bigsby, not good for extreme whammy bar action but creates a nice tremolo effect.

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5445T Electromatic Double Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

            Ive been playing this guitar for about 6 months now, i also play various telecasters and PRS guitars and this is my first gretsch. Right out of the box i was jaw dropped. i chose this model because of the neck and shape and the price seemed safe, this guitar has the finish and feel of a much more expensive guitar and is instantly inviting inviting your fingers to glide along the very unusual neck. I play this guitar to the side a bit and find that you can play much smoother and faster that way.

            I will say this, i dont quite understand other reviews talking about medium hot pickups and lots of tone control.... this guitar is VERY VERY loud and if you play hard or pick hard sometimes there can be a little lack of tone and clarity but if you play with it and your picking you can get a pretty nice clean tone.

            amazing guitar, that is very aggressive if played the way it wants to be played.
