Assuming similar condition of the two instruments, I think the Gibson is worth a bit more money (it's probably a bit easier to re-sell too). So you won't be losing out financially.

It just depends on which guitar you like better. If you have an attachment to the Gretsch and like it, don't just trade it because you appear to have a good deal ;)

That definitely helps, it's been really hard to sell the Gretsch so far have listed it multiple times. I've never really been a Gibson fan so dont know much about them. So this would essentially be a deal to upgrade.

I'd agree with the thought you may be getting the better end of the deal (assuming the Gibson is in OK shape and hasn't been messed with).

However....

I know I'm in the minority, but I've never been able to bond with the Gibson necks. If you end up also not liking the neck then does the deal still work? Just an item for consideration.

So I went through with the trade, definitely feel I made the right decision. The guitar has amazing action and it's first time I've ever played a guitar where it made the amp sound better which is shocking. Doing a trade is a fun exprience if you ever get the chance would recommend me and the person I trade with jammed for an hour trying out each others guitar was great.
