People, opinions of these guitars please?
Howdy folks, I’m going to buy one of these guitars, but I just wanted to know which one people thought was the best. I know they’re 3/4 size, but I think that might be kind of cool as they’ll be easier to take around with me!
All of them are Gretsch, from the Americana Range.
I love the designs, but can’t decide which one, and they all seem like really great value.
I’ll be completely honest… I don’t like any of them, but that’s because I don’t like the designs.
I’ve only picked up a Gretsch once, and it wasn’t working for me. I will say that these are not high quality instruments, I mean, you can’t compare it to a Takamine or a Martin, but I must disagree with the other answerer who said they aren’t musical instruments.
Assuming they are the same model as the one that I handled, they are acceptable for beginner-level, but beginner-level only. I feel that they will play decently and provide a good guitar to “figure it out” on, but I would not be confident in it playing *well* or having the quality of construction that would ensure long-term durability, at least on the level of a more serious instrument.
On sheer principle I only buy guitars with wood grain or single color finishes – if I want them decorated any more than that I do it myself, so I’m not the person to recommend a paint job.
Go for whichever one moves you the most!
