Modern Gretsch Guitars

Putting TV Jones Classics and wiring harness in 5422


So, I've had my 5422TG for almost a year now, and even though the blacktops aren't bad, I am going to go ahead and install some TV Jones Classics. I want that classic Gretsch sound.

I'm going to order the wiring harness as well from TV Jones and have them wire up the pups before they send them (save me some trouble). I understand that I may have to ream out some of the holes a little bit for the pots and switches to fit, but that's okay.

I may have them add the treble bleed to the master volume as well.

Any other issues I should be aware of? Did I read that some people have had trouble with the selector switch fitting in the 5422 properly? TV Jones says to get the short switch.


Subbed, please take pics, I'm interested in the process!


This is going to be outstanding! 5422s already sound amazing.

Ha. Well, I don't know if I'm the best person to be a guitar upgrade guru, but I'll do what I can!
