Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Stumbled onto this guitar by accident on YouTube Sunday afternoon. Saw an excellent review at Andertons UK video page. Did some homework and pulled the plug on Monday afternoon , arrived at my house Wed. morning. FAST SHIPPING. Triple Boxed! 95% reviews of this guitar are positive, you get the minor few where needs set up, which i was expecting. Came with a Gretsch inspection checklist. Slight tuning, and I was off. Set up was spot on! No too high or low, no sharp frets. Tuners hold tune! Lightweight body. Chambered, which i love. Hold sustain! Neck is similar to a Les Paul. Smooth, Fast. I played clean for awhile, until i hit the GAIN..and this axe sounds more like AC/DC than my Gibson SG. LOVE the TONE. 5 stars to Gretsch and zZOUNDS! Amazing axe for the money, honey.
