    Thanks to Tyler Ray for referring me here - I'm looking forward to using this great pool of knowledge! I'm a weak player at best, but I do like to customize stuff - I've started working on Gretsch guitars. I like Gretsch double jets - so I've been working on the less expensive electromatics and syncromatics.

    I've always thought it was a shame that Gretsch doesn't do a Round Up for the double cut jet, so I'm making up for it... here's my #2 Round Up, that I just finished. It started out as a G2923 Electromatic - see the first picture.

    Here's the specs: Spiegel locking tuners TV Jones Powertron Plus pickups Gretsch Synco-Sonic bridge 920D custom harness, pots, switches and input jack.

    Awesome guitar. Welcome in.
    I wanted to do a Pro Jet Roundup but ended up scoring a Caddy tailpiece and just had to use it, here's what i ended up with. 20180730_043359.jpg

    Welcome, Prospero! Great to have you here. That's one fantastic job you've done customizing your Double Jet. I, too, am a Double Cut Jet FREAK and you really turned an otherwise off the rack guitar into a real Western Rocker!

    Thanks for the pics!

    Welcome to the group. Love the transformation. Did you do the leather work? Like JC Higgy said, western fret board inlays. $20 on Ebay.;)

    That's funny, my actual Round Up was changed to a Caddy tailpiece by a previous owner...

    Yes, I had to learn the leather work, it's all pretty simple stuff right now...
