Like I had said in a earlier thread, those 'vettes are hard to come by, You mihgt have to bring it in to a shop or email blackrider. He might be able to help you.

Is this anything like your corvette?
Found it in Carbohydrate's thread on 2010 Seattle Vintage Guitar Show (http://www.gretsch-talk.com/forum/gretsch-discussion-forum/17766-2010-seattle-vintage-guitar-show.html). Maybe he can help track down the owner of that example, and then maybe that person can help you.

That' s the animal that gretschrocker has, he just needs a schematic.

yes thats the one....all i need is a schematic or photos of the inside of the control panel.....ive already made an exact copy of black white pickguard for the guitar as mine was breaking up and i had a spare battery cover off a super chet....so its just the electrics to sort ive buffed up the guitar and the laquer chip on the neck has now gone as ive blended it it with nitro cel.....

Go to Seymour Duncan and get the diagram for 2 humbucker, 2 tone and 1 volume control....that should do you up just fine....
Just an educated guess:)

Can you email me pics I have a guy for ya, but he is not on this Forum, firstname.lastname@example.org
Send all the pics you can there, and I can see about getting you some solid advise if the Seymour site doesn't help...although it should:)
