    A Christmas gift from my fiancée.
    After 45 years of guitar playing I've finally have my first Gretsch and 1st Bigsby.
    This guitar is just too cool to even try to describe! I've owned 100s of guitars over the last 45 years and this jewel is in my top 5 favorite guitars I've ever owned. TV Jones Filtertrons and a Bigsby B3. The guitar was built to perfection. All I had to do was tweak the trust rod a quarter turn to straighten the neck a bit.
    I've been blessed to be around and own some super high end guitars and this Penguin is in the same league.

    As soon as the Covid virus is under control I plan on using this guitar frequently on certain gigs. I really get a kick outta this guitar!
