    Walnut Stagemaster with a Bigsby, It's set up very well and it intonates very well. Guitar-A-Thon priced at $399. I felt like I was robbing a bank. I had a long morning and decided to take a drive over the noon hour; walked through GC and saw this walnut Gretsch. I worry about floating bridges intonating well but this thing is right on the money. It sounds rich and beautiful. I played clean jazz through a Blues Junior. They had a semi rigid acoustic case that fit it perfectly. I have not owned a Gretsch in 15 years. I'm a big Chet Atkins fan so I'm pretty fired up.

    “Guitar-A-Thon priced at $399. I felt like I was robbing a bank.”

    Sweet! That was a great price! I have the same Streamliner sans Bigsby. It holds its own acoustically as well. HNGD!

    The bigsby is worth what you paid for the guitar

    The Appleton store was giving Gretsch guitars away. Normal retail on this one was $649. I paid $399. That’s 39% off. Go shopping.
