Gresch is a guitar company that has a distinct home in sound that no other instrument can really mimic or copy. I know that sender now on scratch but their guitar sounds could not be any further or distance apart. Many other guitars look like something that would go along the lines of a Gibson product line but their tone varies quite differently. Most of their guitars are semi hollow bodies or straight up hollow body guitars. So they have this open area type sound that is either a sound that you like all the way or you do not like at all.

SOUNDS

This guitar definitely has a vintage tone to it and it really appeals to those rockabilly type effects pedals or reverb driven guitar sounds. It has two humbucker s installed in this guitar quite unusual and they only really fit the correct style guitars. It is a mahogany bass guitar see you're getting get a warm woody tone as well as the fret board is made of rosewood. This guitar has a cool sound to it but it's not a sound that is going to be something for me as a main part of my music. It could be a good addition to my guitar catalog but not something that's going to be a main guitar stay.

OVERALL OPINION

At new you could find his guitars for right around $500 which is a pretty good price for this guitar. I do believe they are made in Korea or Japan so you know the build quality is going to be pretty good. Overall this is a cool guitar for the money and I suggest anyone trying out. It isn't my favorite guitar that I have ever played but it does have a nice unique sound and a cool look for the vintage tones. If you are into the vintage vibe and sound than this is a cool guitar. Otherwise I would bypass this guitar.
