Well GAS strikes again and I have to move some stuff along. Head to head against a VS Duo Jet and my G5128 gold sparkle hollowbody, I feel like I can put this up for sale. Bought here at G-T, it came to me with SAE steel bushings (which chipped the paint around it) and the stock bridge. It also came with a Bakelite/garolite handmade pickguard which I reshaped and added the Gretsch logo. The original is installed right now. I also added a chrome Electro G-plate, which can be removed and the guitar can be returned to a wraparound bridge. I’m throwing in the Faber aluminum wraparound, which I notched for a Bigsby at one point. The bridge is locked down with TonePros studs. There is a noticeable chip on the upper bout, and some minor wear here and there. Full disclosure, the Bigsby made a slight impression on the top from use, but it’s barely visible. The controls were also modded when I got it, I installed a 500k volume and 250k tone (quality components), with a 50s Les Paul Junior-style wiring. I think this makes it more versatile. The pickups are set-up nice and close to 11 gauge strings—it’s very raunchy, and the controls very interactive. DeArmond 2000s, no need to tell you guys about these. Mahogany slab body, the mahogany neck is chunky, fretboard nice and dark. Sounds like a Tele-Jet hybrid. The more I talk about it, the less I want to sell it 300 plus shipping, CONUS only, includes the G-plate, TonePros studs, Faber bridge, original bridge, Bakelite pickguard. More pics incoming..
