Modern Gretsch Guitars

Dynasonics, 2000s and 1 meg pots?

Does anyone know if fender/gretsch uses 1 meg pots with the modern dynasonics and 2000s like gretsch did with original vintage Dearmonds?

Yes. They don't. Billy Zoom wanted them on his model but they said they couldn't.

That's interesting. I guess they didn't want to source new parts or make new wiring harnesses. It does seem to make a noticeable sonic difference.

The BZ models have 1 meg audio taper pots. They said they couldn't get linear taper like the originals, which of course wasn't true, but at least they built the guitars right.
