Modifications

Bigsby changed for a US Gretsch one. Pickguard changed too. Pickups removed and changed for a GFS P 90 dog ear on neck and GFS RETROTRON on bridge to look like Eddie Cochran. I've also changed the cheap tuners for gold Gotoh tuners and the bridge too. In the first configuration i've put a dynasonic on bridge but it look horrible on the guitar. In august 2012 i removed the pickups, the pots and switch for a set comin' from a 6120 included a pair of dynasonic, CTS pots and 6120 switch.

Unusual factory features

just changed the pickguard for a cutom made pickguard from mikequickpickguards. i've just changed the bigsby arm for a fixed arm, a better response when i used it.
