I own the Georgia Green version of this magnificent creature, which I purchased in 2015 from Musician's Friend during their annual Labor Day sale. My first Gretsch. My first guitar equipped with a Bigsby. I have been playing a lot of rock and punk shows, while at the same time studying blues. This guitar handles each genre with style and is versatile enough to adapt to each. The pickups are fantastic, and the guitar has amazing neck pickup tones for blues lead. Hopefully this will be the first of many future Gretsch additions to my collection.
