Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6118T-LTV 130th Anniversary Junior:
This is a great guitar. The Power Trons sound Gretsch-like but with more output: so you can do Harrison like early Beatles tunes on a smaller bodies Gretsch: the Chet Atkins model like George used to play is HUGE, and the DuoJet like he played in the early days sometimes just doesn't sound right to me.
The Bigsby is great, and I added a Vibrate String Spoiler to make string chasing MUCH easier without affects the sound at all.
The one negative is the strap buttons are a really poor design. The intent is to unscrew the button, insert it through the strop, and screw it back it. Cumbersome to say the least. I replaced them with Dunlop Strap Locks that function either as a regular strap button, or as a strop lock device (how I use it).
When you remove the Gretsch strap button, there will be a shredded "bold" that remains. It has a phillips head so it can be removed. IT IIS TIGHT so take care not to strip out the phillips head! Then use a 1/8" drill to reside the screw hole a bit and then screw in the Strap Lock buttons. They are tight, too, but do-able. If you don't drill out the hole, the Dunlop screw will be too tight. The wood to secure the screw is quite hard. If you ever have to replace the original Gretsch button, you nay have to glue in a dowel, and redial using a 7/32 or 3/16th drill to insure a tight fit.
Other than that, great guitar and worthy of five stars.
