Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5435T Electromatic Pro Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

This guitar is fantastic ....with some tweaking. Let's get the bad out of the way first. The bridge to bigsby transition is too close so the angle of the strings makes staying in a tune an issue. This is remedied by getting the bricks Biggs fix. Also the stock spring is a little too stiff. Easily upgradeable. The master volume pot takes a lot of the highs out. Again, easily upgradeable with a cap. The binding is a little uneven transitioning on to the neck. The pickguard builds up static and will "pop" now and again through your speaker. Just take the pg off or rub it every now and then with a fabric softener sheet. And finally, the bridge rattled and buzzed due to some looseness. I just put a drop of super glue over the part that was rattling and that was fine.

Now to the good! The neck feels great, it looks fantastic and to my favorite part of the guitar, THE PICKUPS. Very bright and articulate and sound great with overdrive. Sounds better than the 5420 and is more fun to play imo. Love this guitar and again, everything I said that was wrong with it is easily fixed or not a huge deal. Not as good as the Japanese gretsches, but for the price, you can't beat it.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5435T Electromatic Pro Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

    This Pro-Jet is one of the best buys on the market. You get a lot more guitar than you are paying for. Surprised it's not priced higher because it is top quality made. The quality of these foreign made guitars is as good if not better than American made at a lot cheaper price. Quality is not sacrificed at all! Not knocking American made but, you are paying a stiff price while robotics do most of the work on American made goods. Roses grow all over the world, not just in America!

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5435T Electromatic Pro Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

      This guitar came with perfect setup on the string height. Just a touch of adjustment on the intonation on a couple of strings.Some strings are a little low if you strum vigorously. A light touch is all that is necessary. The pickups are very good as well as being fully adjustable for a variety of tones. All the hardware was secure and appears to be sturdy. The finish is excellent with no flaws.

      If you want a good sounding guitar, this one is hard to beat for the money. It is comfortable, responsive, and holds the tuning very well for a tremolo mounted string instrument. It takes a little time getting used to the controls, but it works well. All in all, I would buy this guitar again.

        I bought this guitar as a back up for my studio not really expecting much and now finding hard to put down.
        Sounds and feels like a guitar twice the price easily. The tremolo is awesome if you haven't tried one yet.

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5435T Electromatic Pro Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

            I bought this guitar about two years ago. I absolutely loved it when I got it, it was perfect right out of the box. Looked and sounded great. I have recorded a couple tracks with it, and enjoy playing it every time I do. I think it could use a locking nut as the Bixby can have a tendency to throw it outta tune at times. I really do love it, have had a few comments from others they like the tone of my SG better, I think I might too, but I feel this guitar has a unique tone, it's called GRETSCH. Thats why I bought it and I am so glad I did.

              Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5435T Electromatic Pro Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

              The G5435T plays fine and set up is great right out of the sealed Gretsch carton. The fret work is very
              good. The pickups have a cool and unique sound. I was glad to get one untouched by in store hands.
              The overall quality, form fit and finish is outstanding for the price.
              I have more expensive guitars but enjoy playing the G5435T just as much.

              Side note: Added a .001uf "bleeder" capacitor to the master volume so the volume output remains
              consistent throughout the control sweep eliminating the bassy muffle sound at lower volume setting.
              I will tweak the Bigsby a bit when I change strings by lubing the nut and bridge saddle with a bit of
              light oil. That and setting in new strings so not to bind on contact surfaces. I have a "wedge"
              method for installing new strings on the pins to keep each in place while winding the new string.

                This is my first electric guitar and I found the value was great. It has so much to offer and get acquainted with on a guitar. One problem for me is that the Bigsby mounted hardware has a sharp edge to it and irritates my palm, just inside the thumb.

                About Me Experienced

                Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5435T Electromatic Pro Jet w/Bigsby Electric Guitar:

                I bought this model a couple years ago WITHOUT the Bigsby, a very fine guitar in its own right, completely comfortable, easy to play, easy to get a good sound, and much admired by my jam partners.

                But I've been wanting to learn how to play a bit of Rockabilly style guitar--gotta have that whammy bar.

                Changing the strings on a Bigsby equipped guitar is challenging--it wants four hands. Buddy system required.

                Great guitar right out of the box. I'm an amateur player for 45 years, basement jammer, living room picker. Couldn't be happier with this guitar. Fine instrument and can NOT beat the price.

                I'm twanging out Summertime Blues and loving it!
