    What has been your experience in changing pickup elevations with the blacktop filtertrons? Higher gives more grit, lower more chime?
    I just got a 5230t and would like to hear from you and others on this.
    Thanks,
    Patrick

    I've got mine since yesterday. Have waited since 8 weeks for delivering.

    Absolut amazing fretwork, binding and everything else.

    I love it, but honeymoon... :)

    I have a 5230T : if i'd be able to play it at his top potential .... i'd be Brian Setzer ! It's a nice axe ! Some tuning issues , but with 0.12 strings ... a lot better .

    Being a lefty, I'm somewhat annoyed the left-handed version doesn't come with a Bigsby, yet they charge more or less the same price.
    I don't mind paying a little over as in the G5220 for left handed, but why can't they do the same with the G5230?
    I know they've got left handed Bigsbys in the Far East, I've got one on my limited edition G5420.
