This is a Brownsville NY guitar I bought at Sam Ash last fall. I compared it to the Gretsch 5120 Electromatic and liked the Brownsville a lot better. The action is low and comfortable and with a .12 fret-board radius (estimation) it plays nice and fast. The sound is more mellow and a bit less 'chimey' than the traditional Gretsch trademark sound. At one point, I did modify it slightly to accommodate a different tremolo. Three very small screw holes were filled (dowel) and glued when I put the original tremelo back on. The only evidence is a small dot just below the back strap button (see picture), otherwise the other screw holes (filled and glued) are hidden under the tremolo unit. Also included is a brand new hardshell case. If you're looking for a beautiful, solidly-built hollow body that has a cool unique sound, a straight neck, and stays in tune better than guitars costing much much more, this is it. To hear it in action (excuse my sloppy playing) go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1Gz_s2BohE. Please email if you have questions. Thanks, P.S., no reserve, plus I'm setting the starting bid quite low at $150.00 (the case itself cost me $80.00).
