Gretschbucker pole height


Ok I know that the gretschbuckers are not even close to Filtertrons or Tv's but for now they have to stay in my 5120. Does anybody have a good idea on pole heights on the gretschbuckers to make them sound atleast a little closer to the gretsch sound? At what height should I set the PU too?


I think the best way to find that great Gretsch sound is to adjust the poles on the pups yourself, then plug and play and see if that is the sound you are after.

There are other threads on the GDP that detail various members attempts at finding different outputs from the pups. I just have to find them...


I am currently using montaigne's "staggered" method and like it a lot. It took some fiddling to get right but was worth it
