    NGD - Cadillac Green Duo Jet

    G6128T '57 Duo Jet with TV Jones T-Armond Dynasonics. Beautiful sound and playability except for the antique bridge which makes palm muting difficult if not impossible. This baby replaces my Electromatic G5238T Pro Jet with P90s which I gave to a buddy...

    NGD - Meet Betty

    Meet Betty, named after me best mum - new G6118T ISV Anniversary Players Edition hollowbody. I was looking for a thin hollowbody but decided against a Country Gent - not interested in a double cut or Broad'Trons. I got it from StreetSoundsNYC and it's a used in near mint condition. I love the...

    Anniversary on the Way

    Difficult family problems and a pandemic has triggered my reliable method for combating depression and frustration. Decided to go ahead and order a G6118T-ISV Player Edition Anniversary. I had been looking for a thin hollowbody, and an Anniversary looks like a good option. It's the "iridium...

    Replaced the Mini-Gretschbuckers in my G5238T

    The mini humbuckers in my Pro Jet sounded muted and definitely not inspiring, so I had a set of GFS Slick P90s installed along with a 500-KΩ volume pot and bass contour (1-MΩ audio taper pot with a 0.0022 µF cap) replacing the treble roll-off tone. The bass contour works just like on my Reverend...

    Gretsches - what was missing...

    I modded my Steinberger GL2 to a 3PU version with a 6-way rotary switch and series/single/parallel switches for the Duncan humbuckers. Ever since doing this mod, I have always looked at doing similar switching to all my humbucker guitars to get a clean, noise-free high end with the humbuckers...

    New Pro Jet

    Hello all - I got a deal on an gold top Electromatic G5238T Pro Jet with mini humbuckers. Do any of you folks know when this model was made or any construction details? No longer a current model. I assume it's got a laminated maple top on chambered mahogany - but I cannot find any info. It's one...

    Are Gretsches Doomed to the Dustbin of History?

    I do not think so - I think there will always be a core baseline of enthusiasists who will love the vintage vibe these wonderful guitars offer. I also think Gretsches and shredder guitars share the same physical benefit of having very low action and ease of playing that will never go out of...

    I was looking for a single cutaway center block and this Broadkaster Jr Players Edition fits the bill. Wonderful fit and build quality. Low action. Beautiful flame and transparent finish (I LOVE purty wood on my guitars!). The PowerTrons sound good, too - more versatility in high gain territory...

    ¡Hola, Compadres!

    New member here on Gretsch-Talk. I usually hang out on the Gear Page, but decided to get involved here. I am posting the same question many others have asked - are stock Filtertrons wired in series or parallel? There are conflicting opinions, strongly stated. If you have some official...
