    Hi all, I’ve had a few guitars over the years but just got my first Gretsch this past week, a Jet Club in Firebird Red. Thanks to this forum I have already learned 1) that some people think Gretschbucker pickups suck, and 2) that raising the pole pieces (staggered) improves them greatly, which I did, and I can tell you that if you do that you will have a very good pair of humbucking pickups. I love the guitar, great neck, frets, everything, all for a ridiculously low price!

    Welcome to our new Canuck member. There are as many opinions on pickups and set up here as there are members. Don't sweat it too much and have fun.

    Welcome Mr. Twangy. I also have a G5421 Jet Club in Firebird red.
    Great guitar for the money and then some. Enjoy it loudly.

    Hello and welcome to G-T. Glad to have you join us. Show us a few pictures, and jump right into the discussions. Nice choice on your first Gretsch, they are addicting though so be careful.
