Been meaning to take the scratchplate off my Gretsch 5120 for a while; partly in the hope it would reduce the general buzzing you get with this style of guitar, and partly in anticipation of taking it to see a man about fitting new pickups on Monday. If my plan works, the bridge pickup will be replaced with a dogear P90 and the bridge with a standard humbucker-sized P90, something a bit like Eddie Cochrane’s Gretsch. The TV Jones pickups currently fitted are a bit too middley and muddy for my tastes.
