    Welcome to GT Terry. Never was brave enough to swap any pups myself so sorry, I'm no help in that regard, but that's one lovely geetar you have there. Hope the mods work out for you.

    I swapped mine out with a single coil and a standard TV Jones. Has a fat stratty sound with both and beautiful full tone with the single. image0.jpeg

    I first fell in love with Gretsch years ago when I got my electromatic 5120 .. and made a couple of mods on that

    at that time I was active on the Gretsch Discussion Pages - and went by the username of Gagsy (many years ago!)

    Then life got in the way and my guitar-ing eased off unfortunately… lately however I’ve gotten the bug back, been falling back in love with playing.. and finally giving my attention to my 5420 :)

    Guitar playing and especially Gretsch-In’ is a great cure for the stresses of life
