A great guitar for a great price. Im a devoted Fender fan but Gretsch is tho only other brand i play. I hope this review helps in your choice of a guitar! Cheers and God bless!
Personaly I prefer my instruments with not to many contols just a volume, tone, and a pickup selector and thats just what it has! Mine i purchased from a pawn shop and the wiring on the volume came lose but that was easily fixed with a soddering iron. (what do you expect from a pawn shop) For me the tone is perfect a nice Fender twang but with the smoothness of a Gibbson. and if you know your way around amp effects it can sound EXECTALY like a Rickenbocker!
One word, AMAZING. i cant stress how quality this instrument is. besides that wiring issuse (as stated above) there has been NO problems.
This price for a Gretsch is a steal espicaly of this quality.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5425 Electromatic Jet Club Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar used from a second hand store, I saw it and figured I'd get a Gretsch at a cheap price and probably sell or upgrade it. When I got it home and cleaned it up, the finish of the guitar blew me away. I restrung it and plugged it in expecting to get a low quality sound. I was dead wrong. I own several fenders, both mex and American, as well as several high end les pauls. This guitar sounded better than all of my fenders and most of my les pauls. The sound quality in my opinion rivaled the most high end guitars I have played and the feel of the guitar was a dream. Much lighter than most of my les Paul's.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5425 Electromatic Jet Club Electric Guitar:

      I picked one of these up in a pawn shop like the other person who posted a review. I got it for a good price and it's in exceptional shape, and if I had to buy it new, I would certainly pay the price that Musician's Friend charges. In my opinion, this is guitar is great value for money. When you pick it up, it feels solid, looks attractive, and sounds great. The clarity of the pickups is awesome and when you pour on the distortion, you can still hear every note, and the chambered body makes the sound very rich. It's got a real cool rock n roll vibe to it in looks and in sound. I've played more expensive guitars that I've been much less impressed by. The neck is very nice and (for me) just right. I'm not terribly familiar with Gretsch guitars, but I'd be willing to try others based off of this one.

      The only issue I have had with the guitar, other than setup (it was pre-owned, so I don't attribute that to the Gretsch QC) is that it doesn't sustain quite like I wish it would, but it's a good enough guitar that I'll still give it a 5/5.

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5425 Electromatic Jet Club Electric Guitar:

          Although I've never had a problem with anything I've bought from MF, this has to be by far the best set-up guitar, straight out of the box, I have ever seen. I did nothing but slap a new set of 10's on it and it was ready to play immediately. The intonation might need a bit more dialing in, but other than that: it's already there. Action: perfect. Great tuners, definitely solid. The Electro-matic pickups are unusual, sort a noiseless single coil sound, but they are powerful and I like their uniqueness. Despite the 'bloated LP' shape, the guitar is not particularly heavy and is comfortable both sitting or standing. And the looks cannot be beat. Fans of the seminal punk group "X" might recognize this guitar... if there was a "Billy Zoom Signature Model Gretsch" this would be it. Lovely. In an era where Gibsons and Rics are astronomically priced, and Fender's quality control has become consistently inconsistent, I thanks the Guitar Gods for Gretsch!

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5425 Electromatic Jet Club Electric Guitar:

          This is really a good guitar and even better for the price. I don't believe you can beat it for the money. Fit and finish was great right out of the box. Strings were tolerable. Tunners ok. Easy to play with no adjustment. Only drawback was the weight. A very few other come in at 2/3s the weight. If this is not a concern, BUY IT and never look back. I love it.

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5425 Electromatic Jet Club Electric Guitar:

            This guitar is pleasure to play...size and feel of a LP...without the weight and a slightly thinner neck. Good setup and action (out of the box), I did tweak the intonation and replaced the strings. Fit and finish were excellent for this price point. In fact, the setup and fret work are superior to the last LP Jr. (Gibsxn) I purchased. Pickups sound more like humbuckers than Gretsch pickups, so don't expect the jangle. Don't under estimate this instrument, the Chinese craftsmanship is to be taken seriously. It is production unit and it is definitely comparable to the high end Epiphone, Squire, and lower end major brands. This guitar can compete with models 3 to 4 times its cost. I highly recommend anyone interested in a LP style guitar to give it a sound check.

                I bought this so I wouldn't have to worry about practicing, or letting someone else practice, with it. It's not just a beater, though. Mine plays as well as some makes that cost two or three times as much. Fit and finish is great, too.

                Bought from MF as level 2. Guitar in great shape. Excellent action out of the box. Beautiful black gloss finish,smooth frets. Standard Gretsch pickups are fine for my needs- will keep as is. Highly recommend if you want an entry level Gretsch that plays well!
