    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5220 Electromatic Jet Single Cutaway Electric Guitar with "V" Stoptail:

    Beautiful finish. Like the V shaped stop tail piece. Action a bit high after re-stringing and unwound G string does no intonate well. I will change to a wound G soon that will resolve the issue. Does have surprisingly good articulation in overdrive settings. Good for classic rock.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5220 Electromatic Jet Single Cutaway Electric Guitar with "V" Stoptail:

      Right out of the box, a REALLY nice guitar. All the quality of my two other Korean Gretsch's. Pulled it out of the packing and tuned it up and it played like it looks. Perfect. Had to adjust the intonation on the "low E" the "A" and the "D" but the "G,B, and high E" were all right on. Action was perfect and no issues of ANY kind. You cannot find a better made guitar in this price point anywhere. Plus I respect the Gretsch commitment to youth musical education! In short BUY IT!
