Long time LP user, and I just purchased a really cool G6228.
love it !
I'm sure that I'll have some questions, so I figured this would be a good source of info.
That’s what attracted me to them as well, like if Ric designed a Gretsch it would be the 6228, and that’s why I got one. Also because I never played a gretsch with humbuckers!
Both of the pickups can be raised and lowered as they are suspended from screws, English mount I believe it’s called. The treble side has one screw that is purely for height and the bass side has two screws that adjust both height and angle of the pickup. And you don’t have to remove the guard to adjust the pickups! These little things really help as I played around with the height of these pickups a lot to dial them in and it was nice to just grab a screwdriver and be able to make on-the-fly adjustments while I was plugged in and playing. I never measure, just adjust until they sound how I want and are balanced with one another.Hi hc,
I don't have an LP with real PAFs, but I have 2 Standards, one with SD APH 2S (the Slash Signature set), and one with SD Whole Lotta Humbucker (the Jimmy Page set). As far as I can tell at the moment, the BTs get fizzy a little earlier with gain, but are more articulate when clean and with lower gain.
That said, I like the Fizz, as it brightens the Orange / Supro stack, which can be quite dark.
My LP Classic with P90s is such a different animal though.
The sound I'm going for at the moment is the Elliot Easton / Creedence Clearwater Revisited live tour.
Quick question though, can one lower the Neck pickup, or is it shimmed and non-adjustable?
Cheers and thanks all
