Went out today, looking for a cheapie with P90s or Filtertron sttyle pickups. I ended up trying 3 guitars, a Gretsch G2622T-P90 Streamliner, in Gunmetal; a Gretsch G5232T Electromatic and a Vintage V100P ReIssued W/W90 (V100PBB). All 3 were under £500 and I have to say, were excellent value, with good build quality and very decent finishing. The first to go was the Streamliner. It had decent P90s on it but they didn't quite stand up to the other 2 guitars. Also, I only had to look at the Bigsby and the guitar went way out of tune. It was pretty close, between the Electromatic and the Vintage. I preferred the wider fretboard on the Vintage but it was the Blacktop Filtertrons on the Gretsch that swung it for me. Apart from a little, buzzy rattlling, from the bridge/tailpeice area (any ideas?), it sounds really good, both clean and with some dirt.
