    Love that Guitar!

    The Gretsch Jupiter.

    I have always been a Les Paul person with a great deal of admiration for the Gibson commitment to this line of guitars.But in the past two months this wild child looking Billy Bo Jupiter Thunderbird guitar has simply amazed me?This is a "VALUE" for this guitar,in such a strong competitive market the Gretsch Staff are in!Make no mistakes about my rating on this guitar!The balance is exceptional to be conservative at best,easy to play,very well manufactured as all products with the Japanese Artist!These pick ups are fantastic,combined with the acceptance of these pick ups with my Marshall 1960 original 100 watt plexi tube amp.Also the change of pedal company have brought the old Tube Screamers back,This combined with my old Wah Wah is it,With this guitar you will waste dollars,due to the simple truth,you do not need anything else! Please go to an Official Gretsch Dealer,and change the excitement into your old stale music.This is a "UGLY" beast,and this guitar gives you no reason to play it,but once you do?It will change your life!I hate what a out of price guitar such as the PRS product line has placed on our once stable market,but I can honestly say,for any new or established guitarist?This is a great accomplishment for the Gretsch Staff,it will save you a load of money on pedals with the Engineering of these pick ups!Alot of my change for sound is at the guitar now,and not on the effects pedals,or the multi three tube amps in one box shite?I will began Monday with my brothers,and two sons to re-introduce the Black Shamrock musicians.For closure,I do not advertise for no one,and I have never had a taste for kissing ***!But it feels great to feel the late 60's,and 70's music,and not "MUZAK" when all you had was you,a guitar and a tube screamer,and wah wah pedals to perform?

    The real deal!

    Put on your cheap sunglasses and crank it up! This guitar is not for the meek. Guaranteed to bring out your inner Billy F. Gibbons!

    Not a Gimmick Axe

    So, I bought one really because of the look. I never thought the shape would actually be a plus. However, my right forearm rests in a really perfect angle on the body and it has increased my speed and attack. Really an amazing change in the ergonomics. The tone? Really not the Gretchy tone; lots of snarl and bite. Fun, fun.

    Listen to Billy

    I must admit that I'm quite surprised with this guitar. It was purchased on a whim and I was concerned about the build quality but I've found myself playing it all the time. The tone is great with a wonderful grind that i haven't heard on any LP or strat. Sure, you can sound just like ZZ Top but there is much more to this guitar. This is just plain fun to play.
