    Gretsch Owners...What do you play?

    ya gotta love Gogol Bordello! That stuff is weird...I play mostly Rockabilly and Proto-Punk type stuff, but I like to mess with other genres as well.

    Here's the link to the Montaigne method.

    Pickup help(good setup?) 5120

    Paul Setzer drew this. It is a good idea. Also a member on the GDP called Montaigne, I believe, had an intersting pole piece adjustment that resembled a Tele Deluxe pickup by raising three pole pieces on each coil like these: I liked the Montaigne way for the Gretschbuckers.

    Lets talk...Pomade :D

    I use American Greaser Supply Super 90 Weight Flat-Top Wax. I like to keep it in place with a little hairspray though so I don't have to constantly comb it all day.

    Well at the Gretsch Pages it's standard procedure to veer off topic like that...I guess it's not over here.:D

    What type of strap do you like?

    I use those cheapo $5 Ernie Ball straps. Cheap, but effective at being a strap.

    Yeah, I too was in the Gibson store in Nashville when I picked one off the wall. It was one of the ugliest, most awkward feeling guitars ever. I felt embarrassed for even touching it.

    In defense of g5120 dual coil pickups

    I really hated the way the G'buckers sounded in my 5120, but they sound great in my SG. Sorry I insulted you, Gretschbuckers.

    Square block in a round hole? or maybe not? G'buckers in Epi

    They do fit and they are a simple drop-in pickup. I've since put the bridge G'bucker in and they sound fantastic...and this is an Epi SG. I would rather have GFS Nashvilles any day, but I already had these on hand.

    I think he's gonna do a Gretsch 6120 version of this:

    why do I polish my Gretsch and not my Fender?

    It's the same way with me, my SG, and my 5120. I like my SG grimey as can be.

    Just scored...

    Dang...I never score great deals! You're so lucky. By the way, is your profile pic of Alexei Sayle from the Young Ones? It's looks like it.

    Modding a 5120 - 6120 lookalike

    I wondered that as well...
