I bought this from John, here ,on the forum (JLD4133). My first Gretsch and have only played once so far. I just got it Wed., waited until Thursday evening to take it out its case. Obviously in the honeymoon phase, but, after I figured out how to use the different knobs/switches, amazed at the amount of tones available from this instrument. I like playing jazz chord progressions, no problem, blues, check, and of course rockabilly, which I am just starting to learn. Not a fan of slim necks, but, I would guess this one measures at about .085 at the first fret, and I can certainly live with that. Fit, finish, as good as I could want.
Just a quick note: like I mentioned I bought this from JLD4133 (John), on this forum, and it was a real smooth transaction. Excellent seller, shipped quickly, and packaged beyond belief. He stayed in contact with me during the transaction, answered any questions quickly, and offered his knowledge to some of the questions I had about the guitar.
