Best guitar I've ever owned

By John Small

from Reston, Virginia

I've owned many USA guitars including Music Man, Fender, PRS, Gibson, Rickenbacker. I traded in my Fender American Strat and Tele and a Gibson J-45 for this G6120 EC. Best move ever. It's got the twang similar to a tele, a shimmer of a strat and the growl of an Les Paul. The Gretsch sound isn't for everyone. But if it clicks with you you'll never go back to the others.

Come on everybody!

By Robert Stahl

from E.Elmhurst, New York

Just opening up the case was a trip. This guitar is absolutely gorgeous. The playability is par excellance. The sound brings me back to the late fifties. Rebel Rouser, Cannonball, Ghost Riders in the Sky, Summertime Blues,20 Flight Rock. I can't stand it. Right now I like it more than my ES 335 or Strat or Goldtop. Stays in choon too! Only two weeks old so I can't comment on reliability.I'm totally in love. I used to feel this way about my wife.
