Last week I picked up one of my all time favorite Gretsch's - A new Sparkle Jet. The players series has all the mods I would put into a Gretsch. I am a sucker for red Sparkle - so I had to have one! I do not have a issue with the double bar Bigsby ( I know some do) but the Bigsby on this Jet is one of the softest I have ever felt. The Modern Jets of today are just impeccable! I know they are not cheap but I think worth every penny!
