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!
