1 knavel 1 year ago I gigged with a 58 Duo Jet last night. The pickups were recently rewound. I thought the neck pick up was very nice sounding--usually the neck is nothing special with filter and supertrons but warm and clear with the deArmonds. Engaging both pick ups was a great sound as well. But the bridge pick up in the lead position was weak and thin to me. It made the leads a bit difficult. The bridge pick up is on its 3 original tortoise risers and is closer to the strings than the neck pick up. Is this something endemic to deArmond Gretsches or is this problem unique to me?
