Gretsch Guitars G5810 Bo Diddley Signature

Expert Review

In comparison to other electric guitars, the Gretsch G5810 is a relatively no-frills affair, but when you’re aspiring to reach the tone and style of blues legend Bo Diddley, there’s no need to muck things up by over-thinking, either. The guitar’s two chrome humbucker pickups can seamlessly deliver a confidently smooth clean tone or a growling wail; simply adjust the volume knobs to find the sound that best suits your style.

The guitar’s rosewood fretboard and maple neck will ensure your hands never feel uncomfortable as you jam out, and the wraparound adjustable bridge on this thing makes for a sustain that will have listeners singing your praises, if you can hear them over the sound of your instrument’s singing that is! It’s a guitar with both a distinct look and sound all its own; in the world of rock blues, both elements are absolutely crucial to style and performance.Rating: 4.5/5
