The Gretsch should do fine. I haven't tried that particular model, but the other Electromatic Gretsch guitar I did try was a very nice instrument for the price.
Do YOU know who Les Paul is?

-Epiphone Dot Studio
-Fender Stage 112 SE
-BBE Soul Vibe
-Boss OD-1 Overdrive
-Ibanez DE-7 Delay
I played one a little at a shop, it's fine for rock. It's worth what you think it's worth.
