...What would be the first thing you would do?
Put a Duane Eddy handle on every Bigsby
Do a 1955 silver jet reissue with a G tailpiece and an aged silver top
Fix all the typos, omissions, and disinformation on the website and in their catalogs.
Implement a similar program that Fender has done allowing you to “build” an American model (Japanese in this instance) with your choice of color, standard pickups, and hardware. It’s not custom shop, it’s just mix and matching their American Standard equipment, and yeah I realize how this works easier with Fender’s bolt on necks
I would demand the custom shop build me a 1958 6120 and a 1958 White Falcon.
I was just thinking that when I saw the thread title. At least offer different pickups, bridges, tail pieces, tuners, etc ... Those are easier to do than paint jobs, but if Warmoth can do the latter, Gretsch should be able to figure out a way, for an extra charge of course.
The rectangular Bo Diddley guitar as a tribute,
I would change the name of the “Billy Bo” to it’s original name “Jupiter Thunderbird”.
More Electromatics with Dynas.
Bo Diddley and Billy Bo electro model.
Offer more colour options for pro hollow bodies.
Bring back the G tail piece.
As @audept said.
Have the Custom Shop make a White Falcon for the new boss.
Probably release my own signature model then a Poison Ivy signature 6120
Release a Paul Pigat signature model.
And then make the BiggsFix standard on all tension bar Bigsbys.
Lower the pro-line prices... I'd be fired quickly.
I'd come out with a single coil electro model with a jack plate
That is a brilliant idea! I often see a new guitar and think "Wow, if that had those pickups or that color or hardtail or..." You pick a body, then neck, pickups, tailpiece, pots, switches and wiring, color, etc. Charge a little extra and implement that option at the Japanese and Korean factories.
Is it just me or is it almost impossible to determine which Gretsch case fits their guitars. Someone needs to make a chart, or have I just not found it?
Call Sweetwater. They can set you right.
Give Joe Carducci a promotion and a raise.
