    [​IMG] I’m a happy bunny with my new guitar, total stunner. The only thing that surprised me when I got home is that the output is much lower than that of my Strat and my Les Paul.

    is this a gretsch thing? Do I just need a boost?

    Howdy! Welcome aboard! Pretty guitar!
    Pickups likely could use adjusting. Easy enough, and it's reversible if needs be.
    As t a boost---there are many here who'd suggest that Gretsch ought to include one of Tavo Vega's pedals with every guitar.

    Congrats. Raising the pickups may help. I do use a boost, but the amp volume knob should work too.

    I’ve never thought much about this model...until now! A real beauty. Get those pickups up real close to the strings, she’ll come alive.

    I've been eyeing those lately. Love the blue. Only problem is that I love the green too. Oh, and I'm partial to the white as well.
