    What is your #2 make/model?

    I better buy another Gretsch! I’ll take a Jet in silver sparkle please!

    What is your #2 make/model?

    Heresy on this forum, I know, but my Tele is my number 1, Gretsch number 2 and then my Jazzmaster (currently). I’m down to 3 electrics.

    Black pickguard for G2622 Streamliner

    I’m in the opposite boat. I have a left handed single barrel stain that came with a black pickguard and I really like the faux tortoise. Unfortunately, we can’t trade because of my left handedness.

    Your First Pedal

    My first pedal was a Danelectro Tuna Melt tremolo. I think I bought and sold three of them over the years until I switched to using a Helix LT. Pretty decent tremolo pedal in a cheap plastic casing.

    The Real Single Barrel Stain

    I have one and it’s way better in person than the pics on Sweetwater (where I bought it). Great color and it gets lots of compliments.

    65 Princeton Tweed Sweetwater

    Agree. I like everything about that model but the tweed covering.

    G2622 pickup selector switch going

    Okay, I do have deoxit at home. Not sure why I didn’t think of that first! I immediately jumped to “I better figure out how to get that switch out of a semi hollow body!” Thanks!

    G2622 pickup selector switch going

    I’m getting intermittent cut outs after 3 months of owning my g2622 (I bought it new). I’m used to working on Fender guitars (I do all my own mods and pickup changes, blah blah blah), but I’m a little nervous tearing into this thing to switch out parts due to the harder access to them. I hate to...

    Checked out a Telecaster today

    My Player Tele is my number 1. It does everything. Very versatile guitar and the neck is my favorite. I swapped to the Wilkinson three saddle bridge and vintage style tuners. And I put Dimarzio noiseless pickups, but the stock ones are really great. Just needed to kill the hum where I play.

    A black Jet is a classic guitar. Congratulations!

    New Knobs and Switch Tip Day for g2622

    So, I wish it was the tortoise color on the lefty model instead of the plain black.

    New Knobs and Switch Tip Day for g2622

    It’s a small cheap addition, but it looks better to my eyes now. Before and after shots:

    Weird B string buzz

    The Loctite seemed to do the trick. Hasn’t buzzed since I applied it. Thanks all.

    Weird B string buzz

    Newbie Gretsch owner question. Am I putting the Loctite on the screws in the saddle on the TOM like I would for say my Jazzmaster Mustang bridge?

    Weird B string buzz

    This is the first guitar I’ve owned with a tunomatic, so this is helpful. The nut isn’t binding and looks like it was cut just fine. Any fixes for the saddle?

    Weird B string buzz

    I have a g2622 lefty and am getting some weird string buzz on the B string. The weird part is that it doesn’t always do it. I changed the factory strings out for new and it still does it. I did a set up on the guitar and it still does it. But again, it doesn’t do it all the time. When it does...

    NGD 2022 Fender Player Telecaster lake placid blue

    I put a Wilkinson three barrel bridge (came with compensated saddles) on my Player Series Tele. This will take the ashtray cover, I’m pretty sure. I also replaced the 3 ply pickguard with a single ply and the modern tuners with vintage style ones. Pickups also got switched out for DiMarzios...

    Best Gear You Got in 2022

    Just my g2622 this year but it’s become a nice workhorse guitar where I play (at church) . Very versatile guitar and very light. Gets a lot of compliments in the looks department, too.

    Sounds real good! I’m getting some Gretsch gas again.

    Beautiful guitar!

    I really miss my Trio+. That was a great pedal I never should have sold off.
