Happy with purchase
Leftygaucher, 17.08.2018
I cannot find a serious fault worth mentioning with this instrument. I quite like the feel and shape of the neck. I cannot think of any reason why anyone would dislike it. I very much like the pickups which have a richer, more complex sound than single coils, and more high-end response and clarity than full-size humbuckers. They remind of traditional mini-humbuckers with a slightly more present treble response.
Only design fault I can think of is the strap pegs: very easy to dent and mark the body if dropped even slightly hard. Mine was delivered with a circular gouge around the lower peg. Yours is liable to experience the same issue. Best bought from a brick-and-mortar store for this reason.
Nice color to boot, hard to find in a production lefty.

A Step Up For Electromatics
Sammy_Slade, 30.04.2018
Build quality and that unique Gretsch sound make this a great buy for a gigging guitarist needing that Gretsch growl.
Hardware is solid, but a couple of pots arrived loose, and felt a little cheap. On the heavy side for a chambered mahogany body, but it gives the guitar a very sturdy playing experience.
Very good setup out of the box, and tuners and nut were faultless.
Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to add this to the rotation of a live rig.
Creeping ever closer to proline Gretsch quality.

Incredible bang-for-the-buck
Blue Swede, 10.03.2021
This guitar arrived heavily packed in bubble-wrap and a thick paper box within a paper box. When I tuned it up to test it I realised that it was already set up and intonated (!) After having played it for a few weeks, I have made minor tweaks to pick-up heights and string action. Build quality is more than adequate for pretty much any price range, but quite frankly unbelievable for the price. And this guitar is built in China. Pick-ups are perfectly serviceable and there's no problem getting great sounds out of them, but they might be something I'll upgrade at some point. Highly recommended with no reservations.
