Awesome Workhorse Guitar For the Price
I purchased this guitar second hand about a year ago in like-new condition. So far it has served me very, very well. The Bigsby system, stock, doesn't cause terrible tuning instability. Albeit, it isn't the stability of a hardtail, but it certainly isn't unusable. The stock fretwork isn't terrible, but a fret level always helps with play ability and buzzes. Unfortunately the stock tune-o-matic bridge has loose screws that have a tendency to rattle around when you play. To me, this was a minor annoyance, but I know some would find this to be a major issue. Swapping out the stock bridge for a tune-o-matic roller bridge completely solves this issue and improves tuning stability. The stock pickups aren't absolutely phenomenal, but for the price of the guitar, they definitely get you "That Gretsch Sound." They sound really nice clean and even better driven. The quality of the finish is also really great. Overall this is an awesome instrument for the price.
