tl;dr: what kind of replacement tuners can I put in this thing? Also, master volume and tone pots swapping to log/audio rather than linear... see below Hey folks, just got a new Firestick Red G5220... went into the store to check one out, along with an Aged Walnut G5622. I wanted to like the G5622 better -- I think it looked just ridiculously amazing (seriously, the Aged Walnut is a very special looking finish!!!), and it probably sounded just a bit more resonant, but as soon as I stood up with a shoulder strap, it was over. The 5220 balances nearly perfectly. The 5622 neck dives badly--I had to keep fighting it, sadly. The 5220 had 95% of the 5622 tone and just felt better to me overall. And she isn't ugly, either! Anyway. This is my first Gretsch. There are a couple things I feel like I need to do to this guitar: 1. Better tuners. These tuners are okay, not great. Frankly... they're annoying to use. I've never had to buy replacement tuners before, so how do I find ones I know will fit? I understand Gotoh makes drop-in options... Grover? Does it matter? 2. Replacement output jack. This is self-explanatory. I couldn't believe how garbage the jack is, it's essentially a paper clip. My Mexican Strat came with a Neutrik. For shame, Gretsch. 3. Swap the Master Volume pot for a log/audio. It is linear right now. B500k. There seems to be very little change until there's too much change - maybe I'm used to the Fender style, which I believe is log/audio? 4. Swap the Master Tone pot. Not sure what is in there right now, but I'm switching it. Same problem as the Master Volume. This sounds like a lot of changes, but (at least for the pots and the jack) we're talking $5. Moreover, the guitar itself is absolutely wonderful. Sustain for days, beautiful finish, warm gooey sound. It very, very nearly does the round semi-hollow jazzy thing on the neck pup, and can grind out some real spank and grit on the bridge. Think like a thicker, chunky Tele sound on the bridge. I know the Broad'trons aren't everyone's favorite, but the synthesis of this guitar, with these pups, and this tone, is excellent. That said, I can totally see why people would want to swap the neck (especially the neck) for a barkier option, but I'm not going to give up the reedy, jazzy, ice-cream-clean thing this has going on. Thing is, they make an Electromatic Jet with the Filter'trons, so why not just buy that one... But I could totally see the neck going P90 too, that would kill as well. BTW, I tried this one out along with the 5622 as mentioned (a perfect sit-down guitar!), as well as a Les Paul. This thing does all the Les Paul stuff but a little better, to my ear.
