Anybody out there making some good Gretch style pups beside's TV Jones? I have this crazy Idea to throw some in one of my PRS singlecuts.

and i have watched my children grow,
stood by graves of friends departed,
and found out just how much I do not know" (m.stanley)

Those Lollartrons sound GREAT. I said I'd never pull the harness out of my 335 again but listening to that clip makes me think that the '57 Classics might be in danger of replacement! Wow. I'll wait for my ears to heal before doing that though .

I got some Brian Setzer pickups for a Gretsch I had. Loved em! Sold the guitar, but kept the pickups. I actually had one of my teles routed to be able to mount them in the guitar. Man they sound awesome!
More gear than the law should allow. Why can't we be satisfied with one guitar, one amp and a few effects!?!
The thing about the Lollartrons is that they're designed as a drop-in fit for a standard Gibson humbucker rout. They're not meant to be a direct replacement for a Filtertron/Gretsch pickup--for that you'd probably want the TV Jones. Not sure if PRS pickups are the same size as Gibsons--I've got no experience with PRS guitars.
Not entirely relevant here, but I've got two Gretsches with TV Jones and one with whatever they're doing for Filtertrons these days, and the Filtertrons are bolder, fatter, and have more output, while the TVs in my Horton Heat have a warm, slightly underwound, more vintage sound. The TVs in my Setzer Hotrod are hot and bright. Love them all, and they're all great for different stuff, but if I could only keep one right now it'd be the Falcon.

A dozen other Z amps/cabs I've sold or traded. I may have a problem--but I'm an excellent customer.
Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

Joey Beverages: hayesgary307 try a Z 210 or Z 410 with Galaxie ... also, yes the G1265 is most tasty and excellent

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
