Long time guitarist...hey, I saw the Beatles in concert, if that gives you an idea. I'm seriously considering a Gretsch guitar, in the range of $2-3 grand. My only requirements are it must have a Bigsby, and I prefer single cut away. Are there any preferred models you recommend? I'm a big fan of the Ventures, Byrds, Beatles, and Kinks, Hellecasters....etc. Recently, I've become enamored of a band many aren't familiar with, Eilen Jewell...call her Americana. Her guitarist, Jerry Miller (not the Moby Grape guy) is an amazing guitarist, who plays for the song, not for flash. It looks like he plays a Chet Atkins model? Thanks so much for any replies. I feel like I deserve a quality electric before I die, and my wife is ok with it.
