I was going to get cartridges for my printer and stopped by the local GC to cruise the used items. On the wall was this gorgeous white Ibanez with gold hardware and a Bigsby. I snapped a quick pic and texted it to my wife who said "buy it". And I did. Even had a hardshell case and the price was really good. I took it to my guitar tech who set it up and put "12" flatwounds on it. I really liked the neck when I played it in the store but was a little worried about how it would play with those heavier strings. But when I picked it up it plays like "butta". Of course you can't really bend like you can on a LP or Strat, but that's not this guitar is for. This one is to play standards and chunk out those Freddie Green 4-to-the-bar chords. Even at the new price I think this guitar is a steal and used...even more so.
In 2010 I was looking for a hollow body in the lines of a Gibson 335, something that could capture the classic blues per a BB King style. Not quite ready to folk out the big dollars for the Gibson the guy at GC pointed out the Artcore AS73. The guitar is great and after ~4 years and a lot of notes pushed through it, it sounds better than the day I bought it. The pickups and hardware are top notch. Not a complaint with it in any way. Fast forward to 2014 and having an opportunity to do some work in the rockabilly vein I thought about and looked real hard at the Gretsch models. I've got a lot of respect and admiration for Gretsch and all they have done for the history of the music I love so I'm not going to get into bashing round but I picked up the Artcore AT75 (white with gold HW) and hands down it was the way to go- and the +$1500 savings was a nice twist as well. The AF75 doesn't miss a beat filling the rockabilly sound with a little slap back and your good to go. I also use it in a version of Sleep Walk that our band does and it Artcore is perfect. If you are looking at hollow bodies I would encourage you to head down to GC and put one of these through the paces. Money aside (they are a fabulous deal) these are some really good instruments. Spend a little time setting it up to your taste and I'm sure you would be happy with your purchase.
I've had my Artcore (in creamy white) for almost two years now. When I found it, I was tossed between the Epiphone Joe Pass (which I didn't get because it did not come with the trem bar, although it was a great guitar for the price too) and the Gretsch G5120 (which I passed on for the price, and I liked the Artcore's white finish better). All in all, I think I made a killer choice! The Artcore AT75TDG plays like a dream, I love the fact that the neck (and body, and headstock...) is bound, and the covered humbuckers are thick and articulate without being overbearing. I've heard complaints that the Artcore pickups are underpowered...not so, I think they are perfectly balanced to the sound of this sweet guitar! The finish is simply to *die* for...cream white with gold hardware, are you kidding me? I thought "White Penguin" immediately when I first saw it! If I HAD to pick out any flaws, they would be 1.) the limited upper register access due to the cutaway design, and 2.) the fact that it came set up with ultra light strings...not that I'm against anyone using light strings, but this guitar screams to be set up with heavier strings than 9's, preferrably with a wound G string! With a minimal amount of setup work and a set of D'Addario medium light Jazz strings, I had it playing and feeling exactly as I like it. Overall, I think this super sweet work of art would be an awesome deal for twice the price! If you're looking for a versitle jazz box that can do country, blues and rock and roll too, you've found it right here!
I once owned a Gretsch 5122, which I didn't care for. I ran across this baby and fell in love with it. It has great hollowbody sound and can jam out Stevie Ray with a flick of a switch. The quality is superb for the price, I even got $100 knocked off with the year end special from GC!! If an affordable hollowbody is what you're looking for, this is the guitar you need to get.
I am a Jazz Guitarist and I play a Gibson SG, when I was looking for a new guitar I went strait to the Gibsons and was unimpressed. While in Guitar Center I saw this and decided to give it a shot and fell in love with it. I knew right there that this was the guitar I wanted and bought it. It is an incredible guitar. It sounds amazing on Jazz and is awesome through my Line 6 Spider 3. I would recomend this guitar to anyone of all levels.
I've had my eye on this guitar for a while now and finally have gotten several chances to test it out. I must say I am very impressed. It sounds full and warm just like you'd expect a hollow-body to. Plus it is very well put together. I can't wait until I own my own and get a chance to set it up!
Awesome investment. I had got this guitar last summer by saving up for it. I had played around with ALOT of guitars and finally saw it! It was instant love! Amazing feel for intermediate and advanced players. Nice overall tone and even though the neck is thick it's an easy slide. Never use the whammy but when I do it does! And everyone will complement the looks. I mean who wouldn't!
I bought this guitar at Guitar Center over 6 months ago and still play it almost every day. It's a sweet sounding guitar, with or without an amp. I sometimes connect it to my Ibanez TA35 acoustic amp and it's an incredible combination. Buy this guitar, you will not regret it. I have an Epiphone Casino and a Gretsch ProJet, but I play this guitar more than those.
I was initially shopping specifically for a new Gretsch, and stumbled across this model in the process. On a whim, I played two of these (for consistency's sake) against a couple of the moderately-priced Gretsch models, and was rather pleasantly surprised! The stock pickups handle a range of tonal changes well - from a sweet, smooth trad jazz passage to a bluesy rumble - the workmanship is far from shabby, and the Bigsby-style unit functions well. The overall feel of the neck is a bit on the boxy side, and the pickup switch is a bit awkward to use in tandem with the trem, but these aren't worth a condemnation. Check one out!
You cannot go wrong with this guitar. It plays like dream right out of the box. Well made and solid. I have had numerous guitars over the years and this is one of the best I've owned. Plays better than any Les Paul or ES335 I have owned. Very nice tone from clean to crunch. Nice overdriven tone. I would recommend this guitar to anyone.
