1 DannyR 3 weeks ago I purchased a Streamliner from a friend, beautiful Gretsch, but I dont like the sound of the pickups that came on it, didnt have that mellow Gretsch sound that I love. I put a set of Gretsch HS Filtertron Alnico pickups in it (after much blood , sweat, and tears to get them to fit so they could be raised and lowered). At first, I was getting a muddy sort of sound from them, even after raising or lowering them. I then turned down the volume on the bridge pickup just a small amount and the sound would change and sounded very good. If I turned both pickup volumes all the way up, they would sound muddy (not good), turn down the bridge pup and it would sound much better. Could it be that the electronics of the Streamliner are not a good match for the HS Filtertrons? It came with the new Broadtrons. Anyone have any ideas why it would do this?
