1 jumperkballs 3 weeks ago I have actually had this almost 2 weeks now but have been so busy that I haven't posted, and barely played it.My group of happy hour buddies were sitting around discussing GAS and one mentioned that a handful of his guitars were on the way out to make room for a DC LPjr. He said one was a cheap Gretsch Jet and I told him I would take it sight unseen, because... beers and impulse buy pricing.Next day he showed up with this It happened to be just what I wanted. Thumbnail markers, barebones controls and oddly enough P90s. It was filthy. Covered in sweat, beer and who knows what else. He warned me that it wouldn't hold a tune.I stripped it down, bathed it thoroughly and the neck pickup fell out. Turns out double sided foam tape isn't the best method to secure pickups. One tuner was bent, the nut was super tight on the A and D strings. I had a new set of GFS Kluson style tuners in the tool box so they went on, I filed the nut to shape and dressed the fretsand while working out how to mount the pickups properly I decided to upgrade the bridge with a T90 I had in my stash.Some 1/4" Micarta was machined into adapters. And gave me something to actually screw the pickups toAnd that is as far as I have gotten. Plays nice, heavier than I am used to. Have only been able to plug it in for 2 minutes and not into my main amp so I am not even sure how it sounds yet.Next step , aside from playing it is to make a pickguard. Looks a little naked without one.
