1 jonathan p 1 year ago After years of longing this Christmas I finally got my first Gretsch guitar. It's the new Electromatic G5420T in sunburst and it is absolutely beautiful. I do not like the Balwin blacktop pickups though. The neck pickup is good but I was very disappointed by the one in the bridge. The low strings sound like a blanket has been put over it and the high strings sound like an icepick to me. I don't know how that's possible but that's what it sounds like to my ears. Everything I've read online people only seem to have good things to say about the Baldwin blacktop Filtertrons. I'm wondering is it just me or has anyone else noticed this? I'm thinking about swapping the bridge pickup out for a TV Classic Plus.
