1 Surfysonic 6 months ago I got a Gretsch G5135 CVT FSR in vintage white from Music 123 on Reverb. Fun guitar as a modding platform and for banging out some garage rock and punk. Nice neck, stays in tune fairly well, but will likely replace the delrin nut for a bone nut and get in touch with Tim (Proteus) for a SerpenTune Copper CU-120 / ES-2 to replace the stock bridge. For now, I had to tweak the bridge's b-string saddle for buzziness. Got rid of the buzz and I fiddled with the b-string slot in the nut, too. However, the b-string bridge saddle worked itself loose again after playing for about an hour so I had to re-tighten it. I've had blacktop pickups before and they aren't bad, but I think I'd like to put in some TV Jones Super'Trons.
