This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized Service Centers for warranty service. The Gretsch Dealer from whom you purchased your instrument may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your Gretsch instrument.

Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge.

All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Gretsch instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation, and are not covered by this warranty.

Luv it !!!

By Michel Rousseau

from Montr���al

I am not really a Gretsch guy. I only owned 2 since the sixties and never played them live. This is about to change. Perfect action, great tone and a beauty...!!! Perfectly set up out a the box, ready to rock and blues too. Still love my Fenders and Gibsons but this one has her own personality.

Orange you glad it's not a Gibson?

By Matt

from New York, NY

This guy sounds amazing. It's a totally different sound than the Duo Jet and the Les Paul, and I love the bold look. This and the Penguin have to be 2 of the finest Gretsch guitars I have ever played. Plug one in, you'll be inpressed. If there was anything bad to say it would be that it's a little bigger than I like, and heavier as well.
