Which two other two did you get?
Nice. Mine is showing loose connection somewhere. Plugged the sound more and more is intermittent. Toggle switch in terms of pick up sound selection seems to be ok though. How is your's holding? Bit disappointed as I've had for two months and did not play it that much.
Little disappointed though. Sound is coming intermittently for about a week now. Seems a loose connection/faulty electronics. Any ideas?
Thank you. I am in New Milford.
Any good techs you'd recommend? I've had it for two months and the sound for about a week comes intermittently. The problem is getting worse. The other evening, except for a few seconds in the beginning, there was no sound.
Hey , you're not too far from me . My guy is in Blauvelt , N.Y. ( borders Orangeburg / Pearl River ) Al Anzalone of Anzalone Guitars .( facebook his info , if no luck send me an email through the forum )
I'm actually in Tappan
A 5422 and a 6119. Then a Sundown Seranade, just for fun.
Thank you. Found his website.
I modded my 2622 to fit my tastes but had it about 6 months before I did that. I don't have any tuning issues but I use Nut Sauce as an insurance for that. Sounds like you have a warranty issue with the output circuit. does your seller handle warranty work?
It sounds like you've got a bad solder joint somewhere. If you bought your guitar new, it should still be under warranty. Any Gretsch dealer with a good tech on site should be able to fix the issue free of charge.
As for the 2622T: most tuning problems are caused by the nut or the tension bar on the Bigsby. Both issues are easily fixed. If your strings go sharp after using the Bigsby, then your strings are probably getting stuck in the nut. A skilled guitar tech can solve that problem in about five minutes by filing the nut slots. (If you don't have experience with nut work, take the guitar to a good tech. I do a lot of my own work on my guitars, but nut work requires special files and a lot of skill and experience.)
If your strings go flat after you use the Bigsby, then they're most likely getting stuck at the bridge. In that case, the problem is usually that the Bigsby tension bar is putting too much downward pressure on the strings behind the bridge, causing them to bind. The solution is to restring your guitar and run the strings overtop of the tension bar. If that leaves you with a string break angle that's too shallow, you may find that you're lacking sustain or your strings are popping out of the bridge saddles. In that case, you can replace the Bigsby tension bar with a Brick's BiggsFix. It gives you a better break angle and rolls more smoothly.
Another possibility: instead of buying a 2622T, you can just add a Bigsby B6C to your existing guitar. Combine it with a Towner Down Tension Bar and you'll have a setup that looks great and plays very well.
I had slight tuning issues on my G2622T, so I did the following and it now sounds great.
1. New bone nut, cut correctly!
2. BiggsFix (search it up here)
3. New tuners (Grover 18:1 NON locking)
4. Step up to 11s
5. Tru Arc bridge
Best/cheapest thing to do first is a new nut made of bone and cut by a pro.
Mine is fine but sounds like you might have a faulty output jack. Cheaper hardware is always a bit of a worry on a semi hollow. I'd return it and ask them to repair or replace.
I have a G5430T TVJ and to honest tuning hasn’t been a headache, even when gigging it. Also string changes aren’t really difficult.
I’d go a Bigsby model, they’re a lot of fun
