    Kung Pao Brussel Sprouts.

    Don’t even get me started on more things you’d like, or do! Depends how much time you have lol. I’m a chef, so sadly my restaurant takes way too much of my guitar time away these days but I channel the rock and roll into food!

    Did the G6128 VS 53...

    I have an incoming new guitar that I was gonna buy exactly one year ago; it was $1799 and now it’s $2049, a lot of prices shot through the roof for no apparent reason.

    Jumbo Stainless Steel Refret?

    I love bigger frets. My 6120RHH has “medium jumbo” and I play 12-54 strings with a slightly aggressive right hand but a pretty light touch on the left and I love it. At heart I’m Strat guy so I’ve got an incoming YJM Strat; super jumbo frets and scallops!

    Heavy gauge strings and tension

    No damage, just set the guitar up properly for heavy strings and you’ll be solid! I use 12-54 on my 6120 and have no fear that I could go heavier if I wanted.

    Rockabilly with a jet

    Jets are perfect for many things, rockabilly being one of many strong suits. You will not be let down!

    Super strats

    It'll be interesting to hear what you think of playing with scallops! I will definitely report back for sure!

    Super strats

    I had a Kramer Baretta 84, it was real nice but the heaviest guitar I’ve ever had due to the solid maple body and neck. It also had a very fat neck. I’m currently waiting on an Yngwie Malmsteen Strat, those are sick!

    HELP! I need some nice Dynasonic shims/risers

    Angela parts sell the black plastic risers with the curve you speak of to match the top and TV Jones sells the foam risers. I used a combo of both on my 53VS jet; foam/plastic/foam on the bridge and just foam on the neck.

    Big Lazy

    I absolutely love Big Lazy. I talk to Stephen Ulrich sometimes, trying to set up a time to do some one on one lessons with him.

    Steve Marriott with Gretsch

    I forgot about that! I also saw a pic of him with a Tennessean with the painted F-holes

    D minor -- saddest of all keys?

    I have something I play that’s super sad but I don’t know what it is, maybe someone can help me if I tab it out or post a recording? It’s just a lick I’m sliding into a song I wrote

    Steve Marriott with Gretsch

    I think you’re right, but then I also think I saw a pic at one point where he had PAF type pickups in the same white guitar

    Steve Marriott with Gretsch

    I think you’re right that he had just one and continued to mod it; I saw another pic with the guitar in the original orange with no pickguard. Didn’t his house catch on fire and that’s how he died? I imagine the guitar went with the fire…

    Steve Marriott with Gretsch

    Must be the same guitar twice refinished, except this pic it’s got a V cut bigsby with the arm removed

    Steve Marriott with Gretsch

    I knew Steve Marriott sometimes played a Gretsch but I’ve only ever seen him with what looks like a white refinished jet, which could be this same guitar, but I came across this pic of what appears to be a heavily modded 6121. The horseshoe on the headstock gives that away, but then it’s painted...

    High sensitive filtertrons?

    Are the classic+ or the setzers hotter and do they still sound Gretschy?

    Treble bleed stock?

    Actually, I think the whole VS line has treble bleed, no? For some reason I remember my 53VS jet having it. My 6228 had the no-load tone pot which the 53 definitely did not have.

    Treble bleed stock?

    I think all the player’s editions have it, I know they have no-load tone pots which still seemingly do very little

    Will 10-52 strings require filing?

    I play 12-54 and no problems, so much better. The guitar came stock with 11-49 and I didn’t file anything; it holds tune amazingly well and my nut is still in tact with hours of daily playing.
