too many guitars and not enough hands

Well I've had it now a week and first off let me say it's

Gretschy Good ;)


Fit, feel and finish is great no blems or unsightly grain there's even a slight flame in the neck.

The orange in the photos on eBay page does not do it justice its more of a burnt orange a great looking colour.

Necks a nice carve super comfortable, std nut no zero fret on this guitar.

Action is a tad low for me but that's an easy fix the intonation was perfect straight out of the box. could have gigged it the day it arrived

Bigsby is a little stiffer than I expected but I've never used a Bigsby before. I'm sure the spring will loosen over time.

The pups great clarity and yep unsurprisingly it sounds like those Gretsch's we here in all the rockabilly records.

The guitar features the 3 way tone toggle the mid the one that cuts the highs the most, I don't think I'd use but could pull jazz at a pinch playing with the amp controls.

The next slight high cut gives it a meaty throaty quality. but I really like the position where the switch is out and its the wide open pup lets the Filter'tron's shine

I ran it through my DRRI today tomorrow I'm going to put it through my marshal 1974x.

If the suns out tomorrow I'll snap some pics
