Hi, this is my first Gretsch guitar,G2420 Streamliner, lovely build for the money. I'm an old guy but still gigging usually with an old 1965 Hofner Senator. ( no laughing please ). A few mods over the years have given me a sound I like.
The G2420 hopefully will replace my old Hofner soon.
I look forward to reading all I can on the forum.
Cheers, Rob.

I've been gigging with this old gentleman on and off since the mid 80s. Had the action and frets done a couple of times and it's remained pretty stable. Put Schaller tuners on a couple of years ago. This sounds weird I know but I put a Strat bridge pup mid way between the bridge and neck and it made the electric sound brilliant.
I hoping I can retire this wonderful guitar when I get my Gretsch up and gigging with a similar sound.
Just as an aside, has anyone managed to retro fit Filter Trons on a G2420 Streamliner?

Welcome, Rob! Pretty new around here, myself, just got my Gretsch in April, and I must say, I think the pickup mod on the Senator is brilliant.
