Super Versatile Guitar
I purchased my Firebird Gretsch about 2 months ago as I was looking for something other than my Fenders and Les Paul's. I heard a friend playing his Gretsch with the TV Jones Filitrons and loved the tonal versatility he was getting going through the different amps in the studio. He let me play the Gretsch and I instantly fell in love with the neck shape, smooth run up and down and the variety of tones I was able to get from the guitar. Now granted, this model has the TV Jones "Power Tron" pickups. The difference I'm told is that the Power Trons give more "mids" and get closer in tone to the Gibson PAF's. I'll leave that up to the individuals ears. Either way, I love the pickups and would buy again. This model also has the 3 x Volume, 3-way pickup switch, 3-way tone switch. I encourage those looking at this model to try one out and run it through the various amps you're likely to be using. I bet you'll love what you hear!
