    A new to me Gretsch Jet G5230T (Reverb purchase). Looks great...waiting for it to settle before tuning up.

    Initial impressions are all positive. Feels great, setup is quite good (yay), plays great, tons of sustain, can really bark and seems to stay in tune. I usually like to play them a few days before passing verdict, but I am very happy with this one.

    I was looking at those. Be interesting to hear your thoughts on how she plays.

    Very nice!.
    I’m not that familiar with your guitar, so I searched for some info and it is a very solid high quality guitar. I’d like to hear from you in the future to see how you like it long term.
    Enjoy,
