So I've been contemplating picking up a Gretsch. Never owned one. I played a Duo Jet and thought it was pretty cool. But its made in Japan?? Over $2k for a Japanese made guitar. I thought they were American and the Electromatic were made in Asia. Why? Anyone put off by the price tag? I'm just wondering. Is the quality there? I opted not to buy a Duesenberg because it was Koren made.
