Just a raw and real dirty vid for ya. I’m a big fan of these BT-65 pickups.
These pickups sound surprisingly Tronny to me. Could be the player though.
Dig the new man cave!
Very nice! I'm guessing through the Tone Master Deluxe Reverb? (Straight in?).
Can’t listen right now, I’m in a waiting room with no earbuds. Can’t wait to hear Tony play my guitar......
Do the pups mix well on their own in the middle position?
I usually have to turn one down a hair to feel like they're balanced
Yes they do. I’m not a middle position player in all honesty. That’s my least used position. But they blend really well imo.
Great demo, Tony!
No, that’s up at the church now for live use.
This is plugged into Logic Pro X with a Vox model pulled up, verb n slap to taste, and coming through computer monitors aimed at an iPhone 11 Pro Max. So it’s EXTREMELY accurate. Lol!
As a new Gretsch owner and purchaser of a G5220 this caught my interest (as well as a comparison you did sometime back of the two guitars).
This looks and sounds a wonderful guitar and I am sure it is well worth it but where I am the G5220 goes for $620 while the G6228fm goes for $3,000.
I think it's great that Gretsch is producing something in "my price bracket" that will encourage me to aspire to the G6228 but for now I can only say what a lovely guitar that is.
Edit: I am more than pleased with my G5220 and look forward to many years of discovering all that is Gretsch.
5220’s are awesome man. They blow me away, really. I actually struggled long and hard on buying another 6228.......I kept thinking “6228 already perfectly leveled-up........vs 5220 with mods.......”. It came real close to be honest. But I’m in a good spot in life right now so......6228. But those 5220s are absolutely fantastic. Big time. Just enjoy it - you already have a great guitar there.
Sounds great, Tony. Thanks for posting.
Nice work Tony. Id love to hear that live through a proper amp. Going to listen again with some studio headphones. Thanks for noodling and sharing.
If you practice it a bit, you might get a gig.
Come to Atlanta!
Actually the 5220 needs a proper setup (a little bit of buzzing, the action a little high) but I am reluctant to get it done as I am thinking if I do "I will never pickup another guitar.!"
A bit late to the Gretsch party I know, but better late than never eh
Get it setup! It deserves to play it’s best! And if you never have to pick up another guitar? Jackpot!
Nice demo n thanks for the share
I’d rather share your vacation brother!
Nicely done! I know because I play that exactly the same way on mine!!!
I paint in an event called The Olmsted Invitational every April. Just had to turn it down yesterday due to a teaching commitment. Really bummed to miss it. But i will be down to teach a workshop this summer. I’ll let you know when!
