Here at MayosMusic, in addition to offering great guitar, bass, ukulele, banjo and autoharp lessons, we are also a complete luthier service that includes guitar/bass, all string instruments plus amplifier, studio, stage, sound reinforcement and guitar effect electronics repairs/restorations.
Below are pictures of the Repair, Restoration and Extensive Electrical Modifications to a Gretsch G-6129 Sparkle Jet. This guitar belongs to Dylan Greer (Theatre Arts and Music Major) who plays and performs with it. Dylan wanted this guitar to create and emulate the sounds of many different types of guitars and that would match up with different amps and fit various styles of music. We started with two USA T.V. Jones Pick-Ups and went from there.
The before pictures shows the stock guitar as-is and before any mods. Note that there is No Shielding in any of the electrical control cavities.
These pictures show mostly the electrical mods, shielding and switching lay-out.
Here are pictures of the finished modifications/work done on this Gretsch. Look out for an upcoming video of this guitar in the future. Early and Later George Harrison - My Sweet Lord.
