I bought this guitar about a year ago for a recording project. Never gigged, and minimal playing hours. For all practical purposes, it’s essentially brand new.
I replaced the pots and caps with CTS and Orange Drops, including a no-load tone pot. Also installed a BiggsFix and ‘squishy’ spring. It’s super smooth and holds tune great now.
Check out the reviews; these guitars are really excellent. The blacktop Filtertrons are very good – authentic Gretsch F/T tones. Beautiful mahogany in the neck and body. Rich, warm tone, but not too dark. And the chambered body is light and super resonant.
The action is medium-low and it plays and sounds great. Really nice neck and fret work. Fantastic fit and finish.
Will ship with a RoadStar padded gigbag.
