Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6040MCSS Synchromatic Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

After years of investigating many styles, mainly on flat top type guitars, I've been wanting to try blues and jazz on an arch top. The initial appeal for this guitar for me is the solid, which means carved, arch top. I also do fiddling so I know the tonal value of a good top. Although Gibson and Hofner appear to have it, the price is a little steep for me. So when I saw this guitar, I bookmarked it. Then Music 123 offered one as "used," but in "mint" condition. Well, I agree--it is mint. I had to lower the action, which is easy to do with the adjustable compensated bridge. And I still have a problem with the position of the tune/volume knobs (they are where I want to put my hand). But the voice is extraordinary! I'm willing to work around the obstacles. Everything else about this guitar is top notch and exquisite. I am not disappointed.
