I got this guitar from a Florida pawn shop for $150.00 in 1994. Have been enjoying it ever since. The pickups are very microphonic and make for some very interesting sounds. Solid as a rock with it's neck-thru body and body-thru saddles and bridge, like a Tele.

I have one or these and liked it so much that I bought one for my girlfriend for her birthday. The workmanship on these guitars is outstanding — practically flawless. A couple of corrections to note about the model: Standard tuning machines are not Grover but Gotoh, the nut is plastic not bone, and the pickups are not DiMarzios but generic humbuckers usually made in Japan although occasionally Gretsch bought humbuckers directly from Gibson and installed them on this model and on the BST 5000 neck-thru-body guitar. If the market price of this guitar was $150 back in 1994, it had risen back in 2004 to about $350. Now, however, buyers have figured out that this is a very, very undervalued Gretsch guitar and prices now are as high as $800 to $850 for a mint condition Committee.
