Quick backstory. About 3 years ago I went through a horrible divorce that became an all consuming nightmare, financialy crushed me, and thus wiped out pretty much all (no..wait..all) of my guitar collection. I haven't even really looked at or thought about a guitar in that time. Anyways, that is all behind me and I've fallen back into it again hard. So naturally, the first thing I start doing?... Start shopping for a Jazzmaster and start shopping for a Gretsch. I was horrified to see that Gretsch has fully embraced my archenemy and nemisis, the Bigsby B7. I absolutely loath them. I dislike the looks. I dislike the feel and action. I dislike they are screwed into the top of the guitar. I was seeing so many gorgeous models of new (well, within the past few years) models of Gretsch guitars that were just jawdropping gorgeous and otherwise perfect... Totally ruined by that stupid Bigsby model. I always wanted a Blue Pearl Jet, flipped when I saw their return, then... Oh God no... A B7. I saw the return of the red Sparkle Jet... Same thing. I saw several new models that without that dreaded B7 I would have jumped all over immediately. The B7 was an absolute dealbreaker. I'm actually incredibly bummed about this. The smoothness of a B3 or B6 is perfection to me. The Gretsch V cutout Bigsbys worked and looked classy and elegant. Now I see new versions of guitars I've always loved completely ruined by these B7 eyesores. Am I the only one who feels this strongly about this?
