Peacefrog, 15.03.2021
beautiful guitar.
came with a good set up an dcorrect intonation. A quick tune up and it was ready to play.
It was a big change for me after spending 30 years playing humbuckers, but once you get used to the low out put pick-up, and how to blend the treble bleed, this guitar is a winner.

My son, has also started to play the guitar, and he's a big fan. So the guitar is suitable for different genres and ages of player.
only negative was the loose jack. quick tighten with a pair of pilers and all is good.

Une superbe Gretsch à un prix abordable ...
Manuel Green, 02.12.2017
Très belle guitare, la finition bleu métallisé est excellente, parfaite, pas un défaut à l?horizon, la qualité des Electromatics coréennes s'améliore avec le temps, et on est pas loin des fabrications japonaises.
Elle a tout d'une grande, on a bien le son typique Gretsch avec les micros FilterTron Black Top, que je pensais changer au départ puis finalement je les aime beaucoup.
Le seul point faible à mon avis, c'est le chevalet Tunomatic de qualité moyenne, les pontets bougent, ce qui créé des vibrations désagréables, ainsi que des dés-accordages fréquents à l'utilisation du Bigsby, j'ai donc changé mon chevalet, j'ai acheté chez Thomann le chevalet Gretsch Rocking Bar, plus de problèmes, avec une augmentation du sustain.
Pour ceux qui veulent garder un chevalet réglable je recommande le Duesenberg Steel Saddle Bridge, le rayon est de 12 pouces, (numéro d'article 363308), j'ai un ami qui a fait l'essai, c'est parfait, la réputation de Duesenberg n'est plus à faire.
J'ai maintenant cette guitare depuis plus d'un an, j'ai eu quelques réglages à faire au départ, maintenant elle est parfaite, le travail des frettes est parfait, facile à jouer, on tombe facilement amoureux de ce genre de guitare, je recommande sans hésitations.

Das ist Rock?n?Roll Pur
Stratobartschi, 12.04.2017
Das Teil hat mich komplett umgehauen. Erstmal sieht die Klampfe tierisch gut aus. Wahnsinn! Dann die Verarbeitung:
Spitze! Alles ist sauber ausgeführt. Ich habe nichts zum meckern gefunden. Natürlich muss einem bei diesem doch recht günstigen Preis klar sein das da nicht die hochwertigste Hardware eingebaut wird. Da kann man aber nachbessern. Ich werde z.B. die Bridge und die Tuner tauschen. Wie gesagt: das möchte ich nicht als negativ bewerten. Eine Japan Gretsch kostet schließlich das dreifache. Die Bespielbarkeit lässt ebenfalls keine Wünsche offen. Butterweich trotz 11er Saiten. Der Sound war die größte Überraschung. Göttlich. Eigentlich sollte sie für unsere Stilechten R?n`R -Klassiker herhalten. Leicht anzerren, SlapBack-Delay rein und Feuer frei. Dann habe ich festgestellt das man so gut wie alles mit ihr machen kann(außer High Gain) Da war ich platt. Super. Und wenn man das Bigsby behandelt wie seine Liebste gibt es auch keine Stimmungsprobleme. Divebombs kann man natürlich vergessen. Wer also mit einer Gretsch liebäugelt und keine drei großen Scheine ausgeben will, sollte sich die 5420 mal zu Gemüte führen. Ich bin sehr zufrieden.
