    Is that a genuine one?
    What are these pickups? These knobs?

    Brand spankin new model, all stock Gretsch. The pickups are a form of P90 called a staple pickup.

    These knobs seem new, plastic and introduced for these models. Should we name them "the new cheap arrow knobs"?

    I checked out some videos on these. I really like the sound of the pickups. If I was a younger player looking for my sound I would definitely be checking them out.

    I'm thinkin' I may take a look at one of these soon. They look pretty sweet.
    My older model 2622T was a great player. The only reason I sold it was to fund another guitar.

    I would call then "The 1st Thing To Go" knobs. :cool: Love the color. Is that pick guard cracked? Over-tightened screw?

    I’m a P90 lover, but I didn’t love these pickups. My $0.02
