Plays as well as a Falcon (Gretsch) I used to Own
I love this Gretsch Hollowbody Model. I'm a Female of 45 years old and I've been playing for 40 of them. This is my third Gretsch and the most enjoyable. The other 2 were The Gretsch White Falcon and The Gretsch Tennessee Ford. This one played and sounded quite well as delivered as Sweetwater goes above & beyond what most other Gear Shops do. It still needed some adjustments per my specific wants and my Set-Up Guy took care of them. Even my Custom Gibson's have gone to my Set-Up Guy so it's no walk of shame for any guitar. It will play any type of music, however, I think it sounds its best with blues, jazz, and pop. If you like the sound of a Gretsch buy this one no need to spend more.
