The action is superb and it's beautiful looking.

If you're a keyboard player as well, you might invest in Native Instruments Komplete 8 Software Suite.

I have the orange finish version, and it sounds exactly like Brian Setzer's.

I've been surprised and delighted with my 5120 since I saw it on the wall at the music store. It has decent sound with good electronics, and the neck is one of the best I've ever played, well shaped and finished. I've always liked Bigsby trems, and this one is why. BTW, mine has the silver pickguard with the Gretsch logo. Looks great. Couldn't be more satisfied with this guitar.

The only real differences between this model and the iconic 6120 are the somewhat unattractive clear pickguard (everybody else seems to change this out - I'm too cheap) and the much, much lower price. I have the orange finish version, and it sounds exactly like Brian Setzer's.

You can not buy a better guitar for the money (or even more money). The sound is great... full, clear... just a great guitar. The action is superb and it's beautiful looking. BnB Beatles Depot

Love at first site. I'd been looking around for an archtop to play jazz with, and I hadn't even considered the gretsch but picked one up while I was trying them out at the guitar store and I walked out with it that day. I even prefered it over the 2,500 dollar gretsch that I picked up. It's a beautiful guitar and makes some boogle and other jealous depending on the person. It can be difficult to keep the smug marks off the black guitar, but other than that great!

I bought a black Gretsch 5120 last summer, and it's amazing for the price. The best thing about this guitar is how upgradable it is. The Gretschbuster pickups it comes with aren't to everyone's liking, but TV Jones puts out some excellent aftermarket humbuckers you can easily swap in for about $135 each. Aftermarket pickguards run $35 to $75; I plan on buying several and changing the look of my Gretsch periodically.

Of course, the Bigsby Vibrato is excellent, a classic guitar accessory you'll rarely see on a guitar in this price range. The neck is very comfortable, and I play it through Native Instruments Guitar Rig 5 Kontrol Edition, which really makes it sing, even on a cheap amp or P.A. system. If you're a keyboard player as well, you might invest in Native Instruments Komplete 8 Software Suite. A good amp that I plan on matching it with is the Fender Super-Champ X2 120v Guitar Amplifier.
