You can't beat a Gretsch in gold
Gretsch definitely does gold better than anyone else.
One of these days I'm getting a Gretsch. And it might be this one, the G5232T Electromatic Double Jet.
I've seen my fair share of gold guitars. While true I could go cheap (as in under-$200 cheap) and get an Oscar Schmidt OE20G, a gold Les Paul clone, that would work but the Gretsch just has more class to it.
I like the skinny headstock. I like the 24.6" scale, which is slightly shorter than a Les Paul 24.75" scale, making for a ridiculously easy-playing guitar. I like the thumb pad style fret inlays. I like the master volume is in the most useful place (towards the front) while at the same time the other volume and tone controls are behind the bridge and completely out of the way when strumming.
This guitar is just designed well.
Oh, and the gold is also color-matched on the headstock, and the back of the body and the back of the neck and headstock too. And the construction is neck-through. No bolt-on here.
Everything is done right all around. This is why I said one day I'll get a Gretsch. 🙂
