I haven't posted here in a while, though I'm definitely a Gretsch fan. I have just received a new Double Jet from CME and it's way better than expected. I bought the Double Jet because the color scheme was something that I really found attractive and I figure that it would be a good guitar to mod. For upgrades, I bought a TV Jones Powertron for the bridge and HiLoTron for the neck and a B7 with Vibramate. The B7 and vibramate didn't work out, but this guitar is incredible. From the fit and finish to playability and sound, this thing is just superb. The binding is especially well done and the finish is far beyond what I would expect in a sub $500 guitar. I have plenty of experience with blacktop filtertrons and usually replace them with TV Jones, but they work so well with this guitar that they are staying. Anyway, enough with the gushing, I just thought I would share.
