    I wanna rock with Gene and Eddie

    I purchased a DSW from my man Patrick Dennis recently and couldn't be happier with my decision. I am a Gretsch nut and being able to choose between actual serial number guitars on the site was very helpful. I found one with a nicely flamed top and was able to convince my wife that this was one of a kind. And it is. Mine has a beautifully flamed top. The action on mine is low and it plays like butter. The Dynasonic pickups are not for everyone though. In my opinion they don't handle high gain like the Filtertron or Powertron pickups do. If you are playing with a lot of distortion I don't recommend them. I do an Elvis Tribute and the DSW is perfect for the low gain fat and snappy tone I get. I did replace the stock pickups with TV Jones T-Armonds. The stock pickups sound both harsh and non-distinct to me. I know it's subtle, but I can hear it. The T-Armonds have a more focused and pleasing sound. Kind of high fidelity but in a good way. Great guitar though. I love the shape, the look and the vibe it gives off!

    Twang Monster

    This guitar sure makes you feel like you took a step back in time, Duance Eddy days in fact. It plays like a dream. The two Dyna-Sonic pickups give you the vintage twang you come to recognize with this type of guitar. From Country Twang to Rockabilly this guitar absolutely fits the bill. From flatpicking to Travis style picking this guitar will make you feel completely comfortable playing up and down the beautifully inlaid neck. So if you play Chet Atkins to Brian Setzer styles you will feel right at home on this beauty.
