1 Twangbanger 11 months ago Though I don't get around to posting much I check the GDP daily. You folks are an encyclopedia of Gretsch know-how and I'm hoping someone can shed some light on an issue I have with my G3140. The action feels stiff. I don't know how else to describe it. I don't think the string gauge is the issue because I've had lighter strings on it and they feel stiff too. So here's what I'm wondering about: Could the Bigsby B7 with the tension bar make it feel stiff? Maybe I should try a B6? Maybe it's fret height that causes the stiffness? Frets too low? Could it need a new nut with different spacing? Thanks all.
