Highly recommend this guitar, bought it during one of the past deals. I have a number of custom guitars and the quality of this one is up there, the paint finish quality is amazing.

Bought one of these on the last deals. Arrived in good condition. Would be nice if it came with a case...

A few intonation issues, does not stay in tune terribly well especially if you are really smashing on the bigsby... the bridge also was a let down had rattling problems (well known issue on these, check the gretsch-talk forums) - applying nail polish clear coat fixed most issues but I plan on replacing the bridge with a Compton bridge as I hear this clears up all rattling/intonation issues.

A couple headaches aside the guitar looks really great and sounds really good too. Easy to play, the neck is comfortable and action is pretty low. I recommend this guitar. With the hollow-body you can play it acoustically which is nice too if you don't have an amp handy or want to practice quietly (although the sound is definitely diminished/flat compared to an acoustic guitar)

I have this guitar in Asprn Green, it almost looks like a mint colored sparkle. Gorgeous guitar and sounds amazing. Definitely get that country twang and Beatles chime. Changing strings on the Bigsby does take some time(do it string at a time)

YMMV, but possibly save an additional $50 buying Adorama gift cards through Google Express. $30 savings for GE App new user (Promo code APPSPECIAL for 25% off $30 max) stacked with $20 off $60 GE Amex offer. Sweet looking guitar!

These are made in Korea. I just bought a used G5620T with case for just a little more - wish I saw this first... I'm still happy with mine, though. Good deal!
