Wonderful Guitar!

This guitar has been everything I hoped it would be. I wanted to make sure this guitar was made in Japan.I have been to Japan 7 times and I am very familiar with the quality of Japanese work in all aspects of the culture. I am very happy with the great Gretsch tone. I am using it with a Marshall MG30CFX amp, but it sounds even better on my Fender Acoustasonic amp. My goal is to eventually get the Fender Bassman for this guitar. The fit and quality is perfect all around. I am a great fan of Brian Setzer and just had to have this guitar.
