Welcome doctorock 78, how YOU doin'? Sounds like the madness has begun.
Sorry I just realized that in my initial post I said Players Edition!!! I am wrong, it is actually a 2009 G6118T !!!! NOT a Players Edition. I thought I would keep the 2016, but the 2009 stole my heart... Still love the guitar, just put on a SS Tru Arc Serpentune and it is perfectly intonated (11-52 gauge unwound G). Tonight the Chet arm and string through Callaham shaft go on. Then as soon as it arrives the T Series TArmond in the neck position!
OK gonna give pic upload a go!
Really digging the Tru Arc! Also used it at a gig Sat and was very nice sounding! Growly... The only issue was every time I went for the Chet arm to wiggle I missed it. So used to the Jazzmaster trem that it's like an extension of my own hand. As you can see in the pics I fixed that as soon as we got home. Now it feels so right. A little hokey as you can see some wiggly bends on the arm but it works perfectly now, as does my Jazzmaster arm! Super stoked. Next up is a T Armond in the neck position... anyone have any experience with that pickup? Aloha!
Very nice. Ebony fingerboard?
Thanks Henry! Yes on the ebony. Love it. Having a little trouble keeping it in tune when Bigbying, despite penciling the nut slots etc. Perhaps locking tuners are in order as well as a nut slot check at the Luthiers....
Welcome! Green is such a great Gretsch colour! Love my 5420T Aspen green! (even if it is currently in pieces while I upgrade! )
Nice Annie! Welcome and we also dig JM's......the Gretschiest Fender.
Installed the T Armond and so far (medium / low volume test runs) it is RAD!! Need to try at rehearsal volume still but it sounds way spankier / fuller fidelity than the stock HS Filter Tron. I love the idea of having that full clear single coil neck tone OR the raunchy F Tron bridge sound with the flick of a switch. Also swapped positions of selector switch and mud switch to get the mud switch out of accidental toggle range.
Cool, i bet tuners aren't necessary, if you get that nut filed right it will more than likely cure your tuning issues. That and make sure to wind the strings right.
Welcome and it sounds nice both with the Jazzmaster and the Gretsch guitar!
