2 1/4” on mine.
I worked with a lady from Brisbane. The Men At Work song mentioned Vegemite and during the course of making conversation I made the mistake of asking her to bring some in so I could try it. The next day she brought some in and made two pieces of toast and slathered that stuff like jelly all over the toast. I cautiously, and as it turned out, very wisely took a small bite. But that was enough. I think it was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever tasted in my life. An acquired taste to say the least. Later on I read a culinary expert mention it is best used as a seasoning of sorts in preparing other foods. If I were a spy who happened to be captured all they would have to do to get me to talk would be to show me a jar of that stuff. My apologies to those who have a more refined palette than mine.
Argh! Why, Gretsch??? Did the specs change? If so, when? Or was the web page just a little too informative for Gretsch standards???
The original Filter design had 1/4” magnets so I want to try that. I plan to put the 1/4” in the neck first and play with the stock bridge. See how that combo grabs me. I’ll have to make some test recordings just to listen later on for any differences once I put the 1/4” magnets in both.
Never swapped magnets before. I’m assuming the important thing is location of the poles and keeping them the same.
I probably speak for most Aussies on here when I say a beginners approach to Vegemite is all about the butter/vegemite ratio. Start with 4 parts butter to 1 part vege and take baby steps
I assume people rarely drink their first bourbon without cola or dry?
Gee you're taking a more scientific approach than I did, but then you'll probably end up with a lot less solder on the back of your pick ups too .
the stock magnets have 2 black lines on one edge - keep them on the same side and it worked for me. If you're using thicker magnets its best to have 1/4 thick strips of rubber (or whatever it is) to pack out the edge of bobbins. I'm sure this mod has been done without them but I preferred the added structural integrity. I'm sure there are plenty on here with more experience than I however. Perhaps grab some longer bobbin screws too, there small self tappers but I can't remember the size or length sorry.
Mate, you failed the Aussie initiation test!
The example on the far right is what she gave me.
Must have been like eating beer flavoured ashphalt for a beginer?
I must have deliberately blocked the memory from my mind because I don’t want to remember what it tasted like. Haha. I’ll take your description for a beginner as accurate.
Huge congrats! The white looks great and the matching headstock adds a touch of class on these. Enjoy!
Wow! I love the mods! Well done!
I'm thinking htey may have changed the specs, this review done a month ago says it is a 2.5' body.
I'm Aussie but I'm with you on the vegemite, can't stand it.
Hey now! Those modifications look super, very classy!
They even call out that the specs at the time of publication said 2.25” but they measured 2.5”, so there’s no ambiguity there. I guess it changed for 2020, but that’s ONLY a guess.
@RatRod Gentleman, welcome to the forum. I really like what you did with yours mods, looks great.
Congrats, very nice!
Congrats and very nice mod! Well done! I love my Rat Rod, too... my rat rod/hot rod/racing theme may be a tad less subtle
Man, that thing looks SWEET with those p90s!
