Modern Gretsch Guitars

Centerblocks - pics of electronics access?


Does anyone have any photos of the electronics access channels under the pickups of a centerblock Gretsch? A friend has asked me about updating a guitar and I don't know how much space there is to pass pots, switches, etc into the wings of the body. Would a Varitone type rotary fit?


I can find some I took a couple years ago of a Panther. There’s plenty of room in there, no need to drill or chisel.

Not sure about the rotary, I’ll check.


From what I recall when I looked inside one at a shop it's quite similar to a 335 internally.


Thanks Curt, judging from the photos, it looks like a rotary will fit.
