    I used to have a bra like that. But seriously, this photo gives a whole new meaning to "Stick it in your ear."

    It isn't the owner who wants to make mods, it was Stephan7, who asks the owner whether he was planning any mods. You must have missed that.

    What mods would you make to this guitar?

    This model guitar can be found with a full description at: https://reverb.com/item/19038762-gretsch-g6128t-gh-george-harrison-signature-duo-jet-w-bigsby-rw-black-w-case?bk=eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJqdGkiOiI4OTY3Y2ZhMS03NzExLTRjOWUtOTRlYy0xNDZmNDY1YTE0OTUiLCJpYXQiOjE2MzQwNzg0OTAsInVzZXJfaWQiOiIiLCJzZXNzaW9uX2lkIjoiIiwiY29va2llX2lkIjoiMGZkOTJjNjgtMmJhOC00YzNiLTllNDgtNzQ3NWYwMGY3ZTRlIiwicHJvZHVjdF9pZI6IjE5MDM4NzYyIiwic291cmNlIjoiTk9ORSJ9.WACqm5ZWq4jeAxLfO5u8ncSuxMpPXKDRYMeJKoGNWJw

    I don't own this guitar and am not personally interested in it, but if I was stuck with it as the only guitar I could play, as a hypothetical? Definitely the bridge. For this hypothetical, ebony board, thumbnail markers, double cut, shorter tenon, and I want it close to 7 lbs so weight relief as needed. Lol my next gretsch guitar may be a custom shop.

    I would remove the giant fret inlays for thumbnails too, but double cut would make it too lean in the lows for me.

    fwiw.
    This body is slightly deeper than a standard jet and way more hollow. I would though have the body in thin nitro lacquer black, instead of the poly. And I'd replace the crummy plated hotdog bridge for a solid steel tru-arc serpentune (which I just did) and I'd replace the bunk grover tuners for vintage locking gotohs (which I did), and I'd dump the cheap film tone cap for a PIO cap (which I did) and I'd replace the stock dynas for tvjones repros since the originals had real DeArmond Dynas. (which I'm about to do).

    Tavo doesn't leave much alone lol, it wouldn't surprise me if he was to customize a guitar that was worth $10 000.00.

    I'm half expecting a pick up swap at very least.

    EDIT, and there you go (see above post).

  7. :( Maybe we need more emojis, to underscore where the jokes are? :rolleyes:

    Just please don’t tell me it says “George Harrison” on the truss rod cover! :D

    Nice Tavo! Just change the truss rod cover and move on, but I understand. I only recently learned to put up with some of their songs, otherwise I have always disliked their music as well.

  10. Gorman Harmons really belongs in the
    under-rated guitarist thread, doesn’t he?

    OK, now that we've figured out whose tribute model this is and we know how it will be modified, I'm curious what your opinion is of this model. If anyone can tell us what we don't already know, it's you, Tavo.

    he is under-rated horribly in my opinion. it could be his diversions into experimental drugs that canceled him
