I thought the same (the 'G' on the tail). Cal will have a good idea if it's a custom built thing. Good luck taking it apart and if you find 'Made in China' give it straight back to your mate.
TBH I haven't seen any Bigsby style tailpieces with a "G" stamp on them. As Paddy said, Gretsch use patented Bigsby's so my guess would be it's a no-name make. The headstock logo is also a new one on me.

@Nobber - I have not. Sounds very intriguing 👍.
I’m trying to get my guitar connected to my blue tooth headphones. Apparently these things have inbuilt pedal effects, eg overdrive, wah wah........

Might purchase for practicing without pissing off the family. @paddysr is usually hot on these sort of things, could do with his opinion!

@paddysr is s**t hot in these matters 👍.

@calgarywhite is also in the know; maybe drop him a PM?

I did get a wireless connection from my guitar to my amp (love it) but I'm still using regular headphones plugged into the amp. Amazon no good?

@Nobby_Troutface probably knows a bit about this stuff too.

Sorry, Nobs, I'm clueless about this. I'd be buying the cheapest that Amazon had to offer, experiment with it, and then upgrade if needed.

Or, buy earplugs for the family from Boots 😉
I once read an article in NME (I think) of the moment they gave Angus young a cordless system for an electric guitar and he ran around a venue playing without missing a note.

That will be me around our hall stairs and landing

Video please 😃.

The wireless connection to an amp, literally, liberates you and imho is worth the money.

Have you seen the boss waza airs? It's basically a boss katana amp in headphones. Expensive though.

New custom build on the go for a customer...Finally had a chance to put the new laser engraver to work on a guitar build...This was 10 hours of laser engraving on a mahogany customized strat body. Ready for a Danish oil finish with black pups and hardware.
