Welcome! Cool guitar. I want one!
Welcome @Ronald91 - that's a beautiful guitar you have!
Thank you all for the warm welcome!
I appreciate the opinions on the pickup change.
The reason I was thinking about changing them, is that I'm after that chimey, sparkly, cutting trough the mix sound of the Filtertrons.
I'm playing mostly in church and those DeArmond are a little noisy as well.
But with all the comments on this topic and the one I made in the 'Pickups' section, I think.
I will copy this message and paste it there
This is an example of the sound (riff at timestamp 0:41) I am looking for:
Nice guitar ... Welcome to the forum!
You have excellent taste.
Before changing pickups you may want to consider changing strings first. These pickups respond very well to the type of and size of string that you use.
These are very pretty guitars in looks and sound.
Welcome aboard, we are happy to have you, I changed the strings on a Gretsch G3155 using Elxir Nanoweb for someone that needed the sound brighter and wanted an acoustic sound. I was pleased at how it well it responded.
The DeArmond 2000 pickups are single coils, and therefore will hum a bit. You probably won't find many others that are brighter sounding. You'll also never recoup the cost of the mods if you sell it later on. That's common with mods.
The 3156 and others with the Cat's Eyes are the Historic series guitars. They're probably the best kept Gretsch secret. Great bang for the buck. They've only appreciated in value.
Welcome. Great place for Gretsch and a great place for guitars. Nice Gretsch
Welcome! I always like those whammy bars better than the typical Bigsby.
