    Well, you didn't specify "Gretsch" so here's the one I made. It does have a truss rod cover on now.

    Here's my 5655:

    I've put a V cut B3, Towner bar, chambered SS Compton, and ZeroGlide nut on it and rewired it w/ Emerson and CTS pots moving all the volumes to the lower bout and the tone post master volume on the lower horn. It also got an Emerson PIO cap, treble bleed on the master volume, and Switchcraft toggle and jack.

    Two single cuts makes a double, right? Whatever, I'll post it anyway.

    This will be the next solid body guitar I buy, if I ever find one. I love it. So simple and elegant.

    I'm really tempted to try and build a MY replica out of one of the older projet double cuts.
