Hi all This is just a basic run down of what I've been up to during lock down. I had a g5230t given to me for my birthday in May last year and truth be known I have never really bonded with it and to cut a long story short the reason is that it was kind of like playing a les paul copy. It just wasn't Gretsch enough for me, even after new pups, Bigsby b3, Compton bridge etc etc. The Guitar sounded great and played nice but something was not right. NO FLOATING BRIDGE! So..... 0ff came the neck and timber was added to the heel to raise the neck height. I'm going to post a more detailed post later but here is a couple of pics of progress so far. It's all lining up nice. But I'm pleased with the way it's going You will also notice that I have sanded down the poly finish, it got a bit messed up in the process, but that's OK because I'm giving it a new nitro paint job, And just for a bit of fun, have a guess what colours Its going to be, note I said colours!
