Doubles as a striking western art piece!
The Limited-Edition G4500 Sundown Serenade guitar is the third installment in the Gretsch Americana Series. Reminiscent of the ol' cowboy guitars of yesteryear, this acoustic steel-string guitar features distinctive looks, original western inspired artwork, and playability far beyond it's affordable price tag.
The short-scale length and 3/4-size design makes the Sundown Serenade a great beginner's instrument or portable acoustic, and its unique look virtually guarantees that this limited edition guitar won't be around for long. The Sundown Serenade has durable real-wood construction, a precise factory setup, and tone that just begs for strumming at the nearest campfire.

You can tell that this guiatar is constructed cheaply, but it play really good! I'm not lying when I say this: this thing came with better intonation and fewer buzzes than my martin acoustic! You get what you pay for, but this thing is perfect for traveling, flying, whatever! Buy one of these!
Be realistic in your expectations and you won't be disappointed. This guitar is reminiscent of the Silvertone acoustics out of the Sears and Roebuck catalog of yesteryear. The artwork makes it a conversation piece. The price tag makes it a guitar that I will take camping and down to the beach, enjoy and not worry about it getting damaged. No, it doesn?t sound like my Taylors. But yes, this guitar is worth what I paid for it and has its place in my collection.It did pay a premium for the Gretsch logo and the artwork. If that?s not important to you, then check out the Rogue acoustics before your next sing-along around the campfire.
For what it is - a plywood guitar made in Indonesia - it is very well-made, easy to play, and sounds pretty decent. It's more than adequate as a beach/camping/couch guitar. (After owning this for a few weeks, I sold my Martin LXM.) It has a sort of twangy tone that is surprisingly pleasant (especially after you replace the crappy strings). Intonation and factory set-up is excellent, and it stays in tune with no problem. The graphics are wonderful, and the vintage-y red-yellow satin finish reflects nicely in direct light. The polished wood neck feels great and the frets are well-dressed, with no sprout. (I wish the frets were bigger though.) This guitar is too fun to merely hang on a wall!
