UTILIZATION

-The handle is it nice? Very. Lots of character though.
- Access to acute (last string) Is it easy? Cutaway. Access worse than a Steve Vai is on! But it's not really what I expected from this type of guitar!
- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)? Very well balanced and not too heavy on the shoulder. Weight equivalent to an ES 335.
- Do you get easily a good sound ...? YES.

SOUNDS

- Are they suitable for your style of music? Yes. I use it only to play rockab and rock.
- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play? Twin Reverb / BOSS digital delay / MOJO Boost COBRA.
His warm-but not fat nor serious. Very far. good offense. Close feedback very controllable. Sustain good to very good.
- What are the sounds you prefer: the big bigsby crunchy and good clear sound reverb.

OVERALL OPINION

- For how long have you been using it? 18.
- What is so special that you like best? Bigsby and microphones.
- What is so special that you like least? I removed the pickguard just after purchase and never recovered since.
- Did you try many other models before getting this one? Many models in this price range (Gretsch, Gibson, Rickenbacker ...)
- What is your opinion about the value for the price? Not excellent but very good in that this guitar sounds great.
- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ... Without hesitation.

Guitar very rare on the second hand market (there is no new either). Very nice look approximating an old Gretsch. Lots of character for her not her only gretsch all for the blow but very pleasant with a slight crunch and very balanced.

Nothing has changed since I bought it except that it has learned to play "Bales of Cocaine," "Mystery Train" and "bop Bluejean" alone!
