Have this exact guitar. Excellent for the price. Plays as well as guitars 3x the price. Note: Stable tuning is always a bit of an issue with these type gretsches so you may have some tweaks needed. Also, the pickups are sorta mild humbuckers and not really twangy Gretsch traditional tones. Pups are a bit darker and Jazzy.

Locking tuners and a rolling bridge would fix any issues staying in tune. Great price.

Had a Gretsch with the same wiring/control scheme and found it very wonky. On a typical Gibson-style 2 pickup setup, each volume knob acts as master volume. Same thing here but Gretsch also threw another master vol up near the neck. That means 3 identical vol knobs when the toggle switch is in the middle position, and toggling down/up simply disables one of the rear knobs. Their rep told me it was an easy mod to make the two lower knobs act as independent vol controls, but I sold it. Prob a bigger deal for some than others, but just wanted to throw out that FYI to help potential buyers.

Gretsch has been doing a great job lately. I hope they do a deal on the semi-hollow again.

I need a beginner solid body electric guitar (or amp combo) for my 17 yr old son coming from playing an acoustic. Any recommendations?

There is no such thing as an "easy mod" when it comes to rewiring a hollowbody. You have to prewire it to a template and fish it through the holes with fishing line.

I really loved my Gibson SG. It had a great sound and was really light. It set well on my leg. I personally hate Les Paul style guitars. I find them very awkward when sitting down.

I would take him to a guitar store and let him handle a few to see how they feel in his hands. Be sure to sit down and stand up with it.

totally agree! if you go to a store that has a very large selection you can try a bunch and one will be more comfortable and easier to play than others.

Agree with the others...take him to guitar center and have him mess around with a bunch of different style guitars plugged in.

Then find the cheapest model of the guitar style he likes best and be strong...

Replace the strings IMMEDIATELY. I had bad tuning issues, but it was properly set up on delivery. Just needed good strings attached properly.
