I purchased this guitar recently from a guy who purchased it from Michaels Music NY some 10 years ago he had it all checked over by a luthier here in UK ,there was no pick guard so I made one out of a piece of African Black wood which is fine.
I am currently using a DeArmond 1100 rhythm chief pick up which although is for a 6 string guitar which I also use works well, through my Polytone Mini Brute, I would love to find a 4string version!! or I may have a custom made Kent Armstrong 4 string floating made. I play tenor banjo which I tune CGDA but tune the Gretsch CGD A (but A down an octave ), since getting the guitar I have really enjoyed it , I also have a Gibson ETG 50 tenor guitar but I think the Gretsch especially with the De Armond sounds nicer .
