1 Curt Wilson 1 week ago Stephen's 55 Duo Jet had issues with the fretboard when it was introduced to some slow steady drips of water that was discussed in an earlier thread. As a result it lead to the neck pickup, which is the only one he uses, to required it to be rewound and the selector switch needed to be replaced. As many know the old black wire in these guitars becomes brittle and it's almost impossible to replace the switch without breaking wires and raises concerns for a guitar that gets a lot of use. So I replaced all the wires in the same path Gretsch used in Brooklyn. There are no schematics so I took a couple hours to draw it up for future reference.Since guitars are all about tone and some of the smallest things can make a huge difference, why isn't FMIC/Gretsch or the Custom Shop wiring guitars like they did when everyone discovered that great Gretsch sound?Was it easy, hell no! I ended up locking the doors and closing the shutters so I could concentrate. Old brain, not much short term memory... If I didn't have another one in the shop I'd probably still be working on it.
