Nice! You got a really good deal. They're great guitars.
I've got the hardtail version in silver sparkle. I wanted to be like Billy Zoom. Unfortunately, it didn't work. Embarassed

Yeah they can take a while to get used too. I normally glide my bigsby in(Gretsch 2001 HotRod), opposed to treating it like a normal tremelo. I<3 Gretschs.

i've been pining for one forever...and since i don't have the 4k to drop on a hollow-body gretsch...this will have to do for now.

what do you mean "gliding?

I take it from the downward(the end of the bar facing the knobs), and swing the bar upwards, as well as pushing the arm down.

<- Like this

Kind of like how Brian Setzer does it aswell(i think?). It works best for either the first use of the tremelo, or for slower tremelo use.
