Gordon Smith GS1 60 P90 Electric Guitar Review

This review was submitted by Guitar Jar contributor: John

Proof what many people (apart from those who make BC Rich guitars) have said, keep it simple stupid. Minimal appointments, no bells and whistles – and one hell of a sound.

…This guitar has it all, it sounds amazing…

The guitar is similar to a Les Paul Junior, but more SG in its thickness. It’s also made in Manchester (though that can’t be held against it.)

Features:

A spruce body with mahogany set neck, p90 pickup, wrap around non compensated bar bridge, brass nut, volume and tone, natural finish…..do you need anything else?

Ease of use:

It has one volume and one tone making it very easy to play and to dial in.

Sound Quality:

This is one of the most responsive and tonally varied instruments I own. Even on rubbish £50 SS practice amps you can get a varied mix of sounds and tones without touching the amp.

Even more expensive instruments can fumble at this giving you only quiet/clean or saturated.

This guitar has it all, it sounds amazing though many amps and takes pedals without a problem. It was designed to be turned up loud and to let rip on.

Reliability:

With minimal parts and simple build nothing really goes wrong, except strings.

Overall Rating:

Gordon smith guitars are fantastic and go a roaring trade on the second hand market as well as brand new in shops.

They will also make something custom, but there is a long waiting list. So I got mine off the shelf, it’s perfect the way it is.
