    I just use files made for that and sandpaper .... cord is really good too. There's more than one way to skin a guitar!

    I only had a little bit of time with it. It feels\plays really well and sounds pretty good. But... there is a problem with the electronics for the tone control related to the bridge volume, something is definitely flaky. Also, I hear a lot of static when I move my finger around on the pic guard.

    I will contact Sweetwater and see what they want me to do about this. I can easily get this fixed, maybe there is a local warranty place for Gretsch that can do work on it.

    Well Hell. You could have done without a wonky knob.
