Modifications

Bone nut, better quality open-back Grover tuners, vintage "Gretsch" badged Bigsby B-5, TV Jones Supertron in bridge and Duotron in neck.

Unusual factory features

"Manufacturer Refurbished" hence weird serial number sticker over original serial number. Last 3 digits of original number have been stamped over to obliterate them.

These have a great, substantial neck, perfect balance and light weight. A good guitar to begin with, after the mods this is a phenomenal player with an amazing sound. Potentially these are MUCH better guitars than their price point would suggest.
