1 Mr_Christopher 6 months ago Well I did it and I'm thrilled to own my second Gretsch. As I mentioned in another post the neck is a little beefier than I prefer but it's playable! I took this opportunity to check out using 11s instead of 10s and I'm liking the results. I might put 11s on my 6119. My near term plans are a Serpentune bridge. I need to play a little louder to determine how much I like the pickups. At low volume they seem a little crunchy for my taste. I could see putting in a set of TVJ classics but I need to play at stage volume before I make a determination. Also the Bigsby arm has a different angel than my 6119, I come close to hitting the pickguard with my hand when doing a down sweep. I see some people use the Reverend 1" spring, that will raise the arm just a little bit but I was wondering if anyone else has found the arm to be a little on the low side? Like I wish it was raised another inch or so. And what is a "secured base/bridge" exactly? Is it pinned or?Anyhow, I'm having fun getting to know it. Sorry for the crappy photo but I was in a rush, and the body is not scratched, that's a glare you see. Oh and I have nothing but good things to say about Archie's Guitars in Richardson Texas!
