D'abord réticent du fait du prix et du 'Made in China', j'ai rodé les vidéos et les critiques. Je n'ai pas été déçu, bien au contraire : sacrée gueule, des finitions plus que correctes (d'autant plus pour le prix), une prise en main d'emblée agréable et fun. Le son est assez typique d'une Gretsch - ça gronde comme il faut.

On peut noter un discret manque de précision/clarté dans les aigus (en hi-gain), cela semble être plus un choix qu'un défaut des micros Blacktop Filtertrons. Les tuners ont tendance à ne pas tenir l'accordage, à voir dans le temps.

Proprio d'une Telecaster Reissue '52, pour ma deuxième guitare j'ai fait le choix d'un instrument complémentaire, moins cher mais à upgrader d'emblée au niveau des micros Filtertrons (Gretsch HiSensitive, TV Classics, Powertrons.... faites à votre goût), probablement les tuners par la suite. C'est un choix personnel ; elle sonne déjà très bien et je n'ose imaginer avoir eu une gratte de cette qualité à mes "débuts" pour ce tarif.

Les + :
- Ça sonne ! Sustain et résonance présents
- La jouabilité du manche et le diapason : idéal pour des petites mains (comme moi), on se lâche tout de suite
- L'esthétique et les finitions chromées : pas du plastique comme sur d'autres modèles Electromatic ou Streamliner
- Rapport qualité/prix pare-balles : enterre des grattes 1000 euros plus chères
- La note du gaucher : elle n'est pas noire, bordel !

Les - (rien qui ne se règle pas) :
- Discret manque de définition dans les aigus, notamment en hi-gain
- Tuners un peu faiblards ?
