About to upgrade
About to pull the plug on some (standard) filtertrons for my 5120
Also need to get pickup surrounds + ring risers from tv, and Ripley's mounts (Do I need much else? Certain screws etc?)
Just looking to confirm everything I need, and if anyone has pictures or advice; Not sure what pickup surrounds I should get
I have a white 5120, and am torn between black (gibson style) surrounds or the classic gretsch (clear or silver? I'm thinking silver) ones
Are your Bigsby and knobs chrome? If so, the silver pickup bezels will look best. The white/chrome color combo looks classy IMO.
Just found 'Mikimatch's' 5120 Looks like he doesn't have ring risers?
Are they only needed for TV Jones's pickups or are they still suggested for HS filtertrons too?
Yeah they are chrome (the standard) =\
Alright I think I'm going to go with silver
If I could just get some confirmation on everything I'll need:
Pickups (HS Filtertrons) Pickup surrounds (EM mount, silver, filtertron style from TV Jones) Ring Risers x3 (from TV Jones) "English Mount Gretsch Ring Mounting Screws x4" x2 - Not sure about these Ripleys hill-billy mounts
I updated the Gretschbuckers in my G3161 to TVJ Classics and I had to order the EM (English Mount) option and I needed 3 clear risers, 1 under the neck and 2 under the bridge pickup.
