Sorry about the fingerprints. This was my first Bigsby string change and it wasn't easy until I figured out the trick about halfway through.
Anyway, I've wanted a Gretsch for a while. I was going to order the Corvette from MF.com but I found one locally for only $499, which is $130 cheaper than ordering from MF, plus I supported a local business and feel good about that. It's a great guitar. Only 21 frets, but they're all accessible. Tuners feel cheap, but string the guitar properly and it's hard to throw it out of tune even with the Bigsby. Pickups sound great on both channels of my Valveking. All around a better guitar than my Gibson SG (much lighter too!) and will probably be my primary guitar for live use.

Thanks! The Bigsby is fun. I'm not going to be using it excessively, but it's nice to have.

Indeed, of course everyone has different preferences it just seemed like a massively negative first comment for a NGD, not even an 'HNGD'.

Edit: 'An', not 'a'.
