This way, the combined pickup sound and the bridge pickup sound should be closer to a vintage 50s/60s Gretsch Filtertron, which were about ~4.2k ohms. I realize that the output of the combined pickups and bridge is slightly "off". But, Chet and George got legendary tones with this configuration so....I went for it. :)It really gives the combined pickup sound more clarity, jangle and dimension. The bridge pickup sounds a bit clearer too. The change in volume between pickups is nothing drastic. Just simply a step in the right direction for the most authentic 50s/60s Gretsch tones. By the way, I use the Top Boost channel of a VOX AC4HW1 with Celestion Blue alnico.I used thick mouse pad on the bridge, and it didn't cause any issues for the pickup surround; it's pretty seamless. I ran a hair dryer over the pickup to dislodge most of the wax (if you want to be real thorough you can also dip the pickup in Naphtha for a few hours, without damaging it).The pickup was a great deal and arrived in 2 days from Angela Instruments. Not too bad for a 2,300+ mile voyage.Thanks for reading.
