I want to hear opinions about the new Corvette III, are here some owners or somebody has tested one of this?, what do you think about it?. Somebody thinking about a pickups combination mod?...Sounds practical and simple think about the stock 3 pickups, 3 posibilities setup, but maybe some limitating (compared to a strat type combination, for example). I like the sound, still,.. Compared with new pro jet and double jet (See my second posted video in):

vette III sounds more thin, trebley, chimey? (well, no chambered body, of course) an more hi-gain sounding pups too, IMHO...

Did you buy one Leo?
I´m not a Gretsch owner yet (unfortunately, plus lefty player :( ), I´m still trying to agree with a friend of mine (living in Miami, FL) to get a lefty G5435 for me (not available in Agentina, or maybe by demand but a lot of extra $$$$ charge). So I´m thinking about "B" plans, like a (more $ accesible and available here) G5105 and adapting it to lefty (with my good woodworking skills, ha!).

I'd get the standard two pickups Corvette if possible, they're stunning guitars, and a good used buy. I'm not keen on the three pickup bolt neck Corvette.

I agree with you and thinking about that too, but, in my contry the two pickups vette are around u$s 1200 (used) and 1500 (new)!! VS u$s 1000 (CVT III new). Not a lot of difference, but...
I agree with you about the bolt on neck too, I tend to think in set necks when I talk about gretsch (maybe I only love strats and teles, in matter of bolt on necks! :) )

I love,love,love my Vette. Even though mine was pretty thrashed when I got it, (and only has one pickup) it's my favorite guitar. No matter which kind of Vette you end up with I think you're gonna like it.
As far as bolt-on Vs. Set-neck, I have a Strat copy that was made neck-thru. I can't tell any difference in sound between that and my normal strat, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.
