This Gretsch is FLAWLESS! Plays like a dream. The sustain on this guitar is amazing even when not plugged in to a amplifier. The finish on this Gretsch Falcon is absolutely beautiful. Such a beautiful instrument to look at and play. You can play about any kind of music on this tone monster, whether it be Rockabilly, Rock and Roll, Country, Classic Rock, it fits the bill! Could not ask for a better purchase. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Gretsch to anyone looking for a high quality Hollowbody Guitar. The sales staff at Sweetwater are GREAT, they go out of their way to make you happy with your purchase. I really enjoy working with Adam Crampton as my sales engineer. He has ALWAYS been Johnny On The Spot to help answer any questions I may have.
