Hey. I just purchased a used MIK, red, 2013 G5655T-CB Electromatic Center-Block Double Jet on Reverb. Newish guitar player (less than 2 yrs), long time drummer. Strictly a Gibson player until now (SGs, LP Juniors ) if you frequent ESG, I'm active there. I've been living in China last two years but returning to the US East Coast in early 2018. I'd been wanting a semi-hollow body guitar and debated between a Gretsch or a Rickenbacker. Well in the end, like many ACDC fans I was affected by MY's passing and I made an offer on this guitar and it was accepted so....here I am. I debated getting an Eastwood MY replica but in the end wanted a real Gretsch that I can modify. My first question which I have not been able to determine from looking at the 2013 Gretsch catalog is what kind of pickups are in this guitar. This model is not even included in the catalog for some reason. I have lots of questions about making some tweaks to this guitar. I'm not a Bigsby user, nor will I become one so my first plan is to remove this and go to a stop tail of some kind. Leaning towards putting in a Badass. I've read numerous threads here and elsewhere with recommendations on this and full MY conversions. Some very impressive work done by members of this forum. Personally I'm not looking to create an exact replica or to try and replicate MY's tone exactly. My first step will be to change to the stop tail and I will bring the guitar in to a local luthier to get this installed properly. I'll also remove the pickguard I think. Eventually I'd like to strip the red off as I'm not a huge fan. Most of my other guitars are natural finishes and I want this new guitar to fit in. Who knows, it may yet grow on me. Anyways, glad to be here and looking forward to advice on this new (to me) instrument. More pics will come when I have the guitar in hand in a few weeks.
