Hi , got lots of guitars , just never owned a Gretsch . Couldn't spell it until I started looking at them . I got a electromatic (not sure that's spelled right) double cut jet ? Maybe ? It's sea foam green and white with gold hardware . The wife says it's the ugliest guitar she's ever seen . I got it because I love the way it looks . I really didn't care what kind of tone it would have or how it would play . If nothing else , I could just look at it . It makes me smile . I'm not disappointed with anything about it , sounds good and plays great . It had an issue but the kind and intelligent Ricochet helped me out and got me fixed up .
