She arrived a day early which was unexpected but nice. This guitar was sold as blemished because it was an open box but Ill be damn If i can find a flaw anywhere other than the plastic was removed from the pick guard so in the right light you can see very light pick scuffing. The pups still have the plastic on them and if there is a scratch anywhere on the body I can't find it. I like the feel of the neck and the reach to the upper frets. The tuners seem good but I'll have to play it a bit to know how stable they are. I'm still trying to figure out why Gretsch chose to go with 3 volume pots and one tone. One of them is the master which I can use when the others are set and maybe once I get used to it this will make more sense. I find the broadtron pups sound very good but frankly Buddha's hand wounds sound better IMHO. Her weight is 6.26 pounds which I really like. I have two 335 style guitars so this smaller size fits right in. My first electric guitar was a Gretsch Chet Atkins I found in a pawn shop in Grants Pass OR in the 60's which I sold years ago so its nice to have a Gretsch in my stable again. I only took two pics because right after I got the guitar a hose broke outside and in the process of fixing it my screw driver slipped off and drove part way trough my left hand. Playing is going have to wait for a couple days I think. Oh yeah and Trouble has given it his approval.
