    The first of 2 Gretsch's I ordered arrived today. Perfect condition from Sweetwater, I will break it in tonight.

    That's a nice one. I think P90 pickups are wonderful!

    Nice! I saw one locally and love that green in person.

    Btw, check the balance of your pickups. Andertons adjusted one quickly during a demo (10-13 min) and it made a noticeable improvement to my ears. I believe @nickurso ended up adjusting his as well.

    Congrats on the new guitar, lot of good reviews on these.
    As soon as gretsch do one with 2 p-90's there will be one coming home with me.

    Thanks for the video tip, I will try that, I noticed the volume difference right away when I was playing the guitar.

    Love it

    Everytime one of those gets posted I have to stop myself from buying one. They look like such a fun guitar for a dirt cheap price.

    Congratulations

    Yes I did. I actually have two other pick ups for it but it sounds so good I haven’t swapped them out

    Yeah it was an easy fix. Congratulations on the guitar, mine has already paid for itself working with me on the street

    That's a very nice guitar, the colour looks great. Enjoy it in good health!
    I'd love to see a single-pickup Jet with a DeArmond in the bridge position, I believe it would get a lot of love around here!
