    Gold Medal

    Absolutely gorgeous guitar. Especially for the price. My daughter absolutely loves it. Just wish the 55 point set up was a bit better. The low E string has a lot of buzz and shoud not have passed. I'm sure I'll get it worked given time. Otherwise fabulous guitar and service.

    a very good value for the money - Gretsch G5438 Gold Top

    This guitar is made in China. The build quality is similar to a Korean made guitar, which in my estimation is EXCELLENT ! The fit and finish are flawless, and I looked very closely for any defects and could not find ANY. The playability is great right out of the box thanks to Sweetwater's inspection / setup and no adjustments were needed.
    This guitar has that true Gretsch tone and the blacktop Filtertron pickups sound top notch, clean when played lightly and they have that 'grind' when pushed -- nice !! The body and neck have good feel and balance and the Kluson style tuners are tight and responsive.
    The only issue with this guitar is that it is not well shielded from 60 cycle hum, but I will get out the copper foil and do this myself.
    All in all this guitar is sweet ! Thanks for reading !

    Very NIce!

    I am really impressed with this guitar!
    I now know what the Gretsch tone is all about and it sounds really, really good!
    This is a great guitar for rythym playing......In clean, or slightly overdriven modes it really shines.
    I have had a few other guitars in this price range and this is right up there with the best of them.
