1 BuddyHollywood 1 week ago I've had my 2011 6128T-DSV Duo Jet since February 2012 so it's been 5 years now. It is and has been my favorite guitar since I first held it. I have always loved the inherent tone of the Gretsch DynaSonic pickups which I heard are based on Duane Eddy's pickups on his original 1957 6120. However I've found myself always living in the middle position with these pickups in my Duo Jet because the bridge pickup by itself sounded a bit thin and the neck pickup by itself sounded a bit boomy. The middle position took these two extremes and combined them into an amazing tone. About a year ago I swapped out the pots for 1 meg and that improved the clarity of the neck pickup and gave the bridge pickup some more juice but when I took it to a gig and played it loud I realized it still wasn't quite there. My sound is a mix of natural overdrive crunch along with some spanky cleans for funky rhythms. In order to get this Duo Jet to its full potential as of last Friday I was all set to take my tax refund and splurge for a TV Classic Plus bridge pickup and a T'Armond neck pickup. I also contacted my pickup guru friend Sayoko Kuwabara to see how much it would cost to rewind my Gretsch Dynasonic neck pickup. In a last ditch effort I thought I would try to flip both the bridge and neck pickups inspired by reading Tavo's thread from a few months ago to see what kind of difference if any that would make.Yes! It's science. The neck pickup poles line up directly under what would be the 24th fret harmonics now. The clarity of the neck pickup has increased. I'm not getting too much low end boominess any more. I can play funky or bluesy riffs on the neck pickup setting and it sounds like funky and bluesy riffs. The bridge pickup poles line up directly under the picking sweet spot. This pickup now has the body it was lacking. It sounds full and clear. It sounds great clean and I found it can handle more drive than it could before. In fact it can handle as much drive as you want to throw at it. The middle position also sounds better. I wasn't expecting this. Before I had to turn down the neck pickup a little bit when I was using both pickups but now it sounds great with all of the knobs on 10. If I turn down the neck pickup I'm still getting my original middle position tone. It seems like a very small space the pickup poles go from the stock position to the flipped position but it really makes a difference at least on my Duo Jet. I look forward to my next opportunity to crank this guitar up at club volume to be sure but as of now I'm extremely happy with the Gretsch DynaSonics in their new position. When I bought the guitar it was 95% there. It's taken 5 years, a new nut, a new bridge, new pots, TV Jones shims for the bridge pickup and now flipped DynaSonics to get this guitar to at least 99%. Would TV Jones get it to 100%? Possibly. I'm going to live with this for a while and enjoy it. The guitar is balanced.
