    With all the Gretsch models out there it's hard to identify what is actually available. Googling I can't seem to find what I am after so I thought I will throw it out to the forum.

    Are there any GG6128 models exactly the same as the picture below but with Dynasonics? I know there are models with the humpback (and block) inlays and a tone knob but I am after thumbnail inlays (I can give or take this) and a tone mud switch. Does such a model exist?

    If not, is there a reason why only the humbucker models have a tone switch?

    Many thanks

    Historically the thumbnails and mud switch came after Gretsch switched to Filters. Most models follow vintage specs. I’ve never seen these specs with Dynas.

    Thanks Wozob. That's what I suspected, was just hoping there would be a model with the dynas and a mud switch.

    IIRC, TV Jones makes a T-Armond which will fit in a Filtertron mount, so you could go that direction.

    Yep. Buy @tsims' duo jet listed here and get T-Armonds.

    The T-Armonds are great pickups. I have a pair in the Filtertron-mount, just dithering over which guitar will receive them.

    I have so many Gretsch guitars with HS Filtertrons, can't decide which one to put them in, probably one of the center-block Juniors.

    I've seen one weird vintage transition model with Dynas and a mudswitch:[​IMG]
