I was in Nashville this past weekend and went to the GC on Thompson. While I was there, i thought id play some high end guitars. particularly some Gretsches. All 5 Falcons, Pro, and Player models... and i mean ALL, had sharp fret ends. I was really disappointed. Really cured the GAS id been having for them. But then i thought maybe its just GC not taking care of their stuff. I will go try some of their new electromatics. Every electromatic was perfectly stunning in every way. And they have this new G5422tg LTD in white sparkle that was exceptionally dazzling. i prefer the blacktops anyway. are the Japan models just hype? are electros just as good or better for less than half the price??
