    In Love

    Gretsch has always been my go-to line. I had the pleasure once of playing a vintage 1964 Country Gentleman and I have been pining for one ever since. Versatility of this instrument is endless. Tone is boundless and the build quality is beyond the norm. This is at the top of my must-have list as soon as I can save up enough!

    What a guitar

    This guitar captures all the essence of the e 60's version. I had a country gentleman in the late 60's and early 70's. I regretted selling it. The craftsmanship on this one is flawless. Top quality electronics and materials. The pickups are very hot. This is any guitarists dream.

    Truly Blown Away!

    This guitar is amazing in every aspect and detail!
    I sold 90% of my gear to have the cash to purchase this guitar, and I can say it was worth it. The workmanship on this guitar is second to none. It came perfectly set-up, with a nice low action. Every detail of the appearance of this guitar will take your breath away. Plugged in, this guitar sounds amazing as well. I use a lot of effects and through this design, I have never sounded better. Is it worth the money! YES!

    One Great Guitar

    I have been playing guitar since 1967. I remember seeing George Harrison playing his Gretsch with the Beatles. Hoping someday I could be able to buy one. Then in 69 I was with a band and our lead guitarist had this model Gretsch. Everytime I had a chance I would play his guitar hoping someday. Since that time I have played Gibson Les Paul Custom and high end Fenders and other electric's. FInally this year I was able to purchase this guitar. And was amazed and what I have been missing all these years. The quality and tone of this guitar and ease of playing is just like my old lead guitarist. I had the guitar set up and did not like the strings that were put on. I have just put on a set of Gibson 11 gauge vintage strings and now my guitar sings. I highly recommend if you are looking for a guitar with outstanding quality this is the model for you. You will not be sorry.

    Amazing Sound

    Ok, I'm a drummer--what do i know about guitars? Nothing, I admit! But here's the thing about the Country Gentleman: even I was blown away by it's sound! STICK WITH ME HERE... I am acquainted with a terrific Beatles tribute band called The Cavern Beat, operating in the Chicago area. They play with instruments that are either of the same period, or the same brands and models the Fab Four used: Gretsch, Rickenbacker, and hofner guitars through Vox amps. "George" had been playing a Duo-Jet and a Ric 12-string as had his namesake--always expertly. He finally got his hands on a new Country Gent, and did a set with it, and THAT'S what blew me away! The Duo-Jet was just an electric guitar; pretty, capable, but for all I could hear, it could've been a Squier Strat. But the Gent was a whole different matter; warm, lush and musical as all get out. I listened to that thing for an entire three-hour set and wanted more. Plug the gent into a Vox (or a Fender) tube amp, and it's sonic sex all the way... Yeah, I'm just a drummer, but the Country Gentleman really stopped me in my tracks. Think about one of these, if you can do a guitar justice! (I can't...)
