Warning: I’m a guitar player.
You’re comparing a sunburst hollow body electric with a single venetian cutaway to a sunburst solid body electric with a single florentine cutaway. I’ll break it down by looks only.
- The sunburst on the Gibson is subtler than that on the Gretsch. I’m not a fan of sunbursts, so on that alone, I’d lean towards the Gibson.
B- I like the looks of a venetian single cutaway better than the looks of a florentine single cutaway. So, Gretch wins.
III) The hollow body is bigger than the solid body. I like that look. And it goes with the venetian cutaway. So, Gretch wins again.
But B and III sort of blend together, yanno? So it’s close. Since we’re judging on looks only, not sound or playability, I’d rather have the Gretsch hanging on my wall on display than the Gibson.
Mr. Natural, is that what you wanted? Hey… you’re not THE Mr. Natural, are you?
