    Hello,

    I came across this forum when searching for information about a pickup change.
    This looks like a nice community. Thanks for having me.

    I own a G3156

    Hello and Welkom :)

    What's wrong with this Pickups? I love this guitar with these F-Holes and the PUs. Wish there would be something like this for lefties easier to purchase and without customizing :(

    How ya doin'?
    I have a similar guitar, a 3140.
    Don't change those pickups. The DeArmond 2000s are special in their own right.
    Try them thru a Vox tube amp for sonic goodness.
    Everything sounds better with Cat's Eyes.
    Just get another Gretsch.

    Welcome! I don't think I've seen one of those in that color before- it's beautiful! I agree with wabash slim- don't change the pickups. You'll be grabbing another Gretsch soon- you can't have just one.;)

    Welcome to G-T! Thats a beautiful guitar, I have no experience with one so can't offer any advice for a pickup swap but so far it sounds like folks like them "as is".

    cheers

    Welcome to Gretsch-Talk, Ronald91! You have a beautiful G3156!

    What is it about the pickups that makes you want to change them?

    Hello and Welcome. nice guitar you have there, depending on what sound you are after don't give up on the pick ups just yet, the dynasonics can sometimes just need adjusting to your tastes and they are great pick ups.
    But if in the end they are not for you then that's ok too.

    Welcome! I have a G3156 just like yours. Well, it was before I modded the living daylights out of it. I changed the pickups out, but I’d recommend giving them a try. I changed mine because they were noisy (they hummed a lot) and not him-canceling in the middle position, at least mine weren’t. But they really sounded good when playing. If you want Gretsch info, this forum is the right place, and the natives are quite friendly.
