    It was a Chicago Music Exchange exclusive limited edition, which is already sold out:

    Yeah, they should make it a standard model ... it could become a top seller.

    I bet the batch was larger ... the batch count of the Bradway Jade Penguin was 75, but that was sold wordwide.

    I kind of kick myself for not chasing one of these to load TAs in.

    Thought I missed the boat on the Gretsch Broadway Jade and then magically, one appeared on this site as well as Amazon and Ebay (same guitar).

    No, but I think I might order one for my Les Paul ... but currently I only play my Penguin and my Mayones.

    But Tony ( @TSims1 ) got one for his Pro Jet, if I remember correctly.

    They work very well. It’s not a Bigsby, so you have to approach it for what it is......it’s it’s own animal. However, drop in with no drilling.......smooth action......ability to position the handle as desired, and extremely tuneful(assuming the nut is properly addressed of course). I’m a fan.
