1 Cirecc 7 months ago Just introducing myself:I've lurked around here for a while, getting opinions about pickups, hardware, etc. and have finally signed up. I've loved Gretsch guitars since high school and have played a '57 ri duo jet for the past 11 years. I built a thinline jazzmaster with a spruce top that's modeled after a 6120 (has setzer signatures in it) and just a week or so ago acquired a restored/hot-rodded 1966 6117. This is my first fully hollow gretsch and is quite the player. It had trestle bracing added during its rescue and was dressed up like a country club. It has quite a bit of wear but plays like a dream. The pickups are the popular tv classic/classic+.
