"I love it."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This guitar is amazing. I’m only a beginner and upgraded from an Ibanez Gio to this guitar. What a huge difference. It sounds awesome. Loud enough to play it unplugged and it cranks when it’s plugged in. The pickups sound great and are very attractive to look at with those silver covers. I love the smaller body and slightly shorter scale, makes it easier for me to do those big fret stretches at the top of the neck. The Bigsby is pretty awesome and the guitar stays in tune perfectly even with heavy use. The tuners are pretty heavy duty compared to my last guitar. The smaller body is also easier to maneuver around with if you’re a shorter gal. The setup was perfect for me straight out of the box, and I haven’t changed the strings yet. I wanted this guitar to play more acoustically than electric and it’s perfect for my needs. The paint is gorgeous too, metallic blue that’s a dream to look at. The smaller size is perfect for my smaller frame and arthritic hands. If you’re a girl and are struggling with finding a smaller guitar, try this one out. I also purchased the hardshell case and it fits in there like a glove! Thanks zZounds for a perfect experience!

"Simply Put it's a Gretsch"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The Gretsch G2622T is an amazing guitar, well made, glorious sound, capable of handling anything you throw at it sonically. It is comfortable to play, has a solid voice through the sonic spectrum. It plays well right out of the carton, without any real setup needs. The value is there in spades. See for yourself, pick one up.
Sound
Having played the G2622T for the last few hours, I must say, its voice is Gretsch. For someone who knows guitars and is familiar with different guitars voices, they would know it's a Gretsch. The G2622T's voice is warm, woody so-to-speak. There is bottom end galore, solid mids, and lovely highs. It is articulate at any volume, whether dialed down on the amp or the guitar itself. Although, I've not driven it at higher volume, yet, you hear a hint of its growl and what is in store. You can play, pretty much, any genre, doing justice to it. It is going to be very interesting getting to know this guitar, given the fact, at the same time, I'm getting acquainted with my new JVM410. Between the two, a myriad of sonic wonder awaits. I like the Broad'Tron BT-2S pickups, they've a bit more aggressive nature, without, sacrificing that crystalline clean, when not in overdrive mode. Yet, there is that insidious growl, lurking, waiting to be unleashed. The Bigsby is something new for me... but, I'm finding it a nice tool for a bit of vibrato in the right spot.
Features
I have the Gun Metal version/model of this guitar. Like my Gretsch G5422G12 12-string, the control layout is the same. Which is comfortable and familiar. The controls are responsive, unlike other guitars where the tone controls are ineffectual. As stated above, the Bigsby is a new animal to me, but I do like it and given the style and nature of this guitar, I cannot see anything else being used, other than making it a hardtail The big block inlays are nice, given my other instruments are, either without inlays on the fretboard or they're just dots. I would, if anything, like to have seen nickel metal knobs, or black metal knobs, verses the plastic.
Ease of Use
Ease of use... hmmmm. For me, it was just a matter of picking it up, forming a few chords as I strummed, then running through a few riffs... It is a comfortable guitar to play. And, it begs to be played, so-to-speak.
Quality
It is a Gretsch, to begin with, but I am duly impressed, with the quality, especially at this price point. The fit and finish is flawless. It was extremely playable right out of the carton. The action is just fine, as is, although, I may experiment just a tad with lowering the strings. I will here in a week or two, put a set of NYXL10's on it, as those are my favorite strings. The 2622T appears and more importantly, feels solid and well made.
Value
This guitar is an extreme value. There are similar products out there, costing more, but as far as I'm concerned, this the biggest and best bang for the buck.
Manufacturer Support
Other than zZounds, I've not dealt with Customer Support, but zZounds is and has been, the 4 years I've been doing busy with them, flat out flawless.
The Wow Factor
This guitar will turn heads, given the metallic finish. It's Gretsch style, Iconic. But, the real WOW is in it's voice. I am looking forward, with great anticipation, to getting up on stage with this guitar and watching audience reactions. When at a show, given the guitars I have, in between sets and after the show, people will, typically, come up to me, and compliment the look and sound of my guitar(s). This one will be no different. I would tell any and everyone, looking for a solid, great priced, amazing guitar, they owe it to themselves, to acquire a G2622T.
