I've made some modifications in my G5122: I've changed the original tuners for Gotohs and put a TV Classic pickup on the bridge and a Supertron pickup on the neck. Now it sounds fantastic and stays in tune much longer than before!
This guitar is one of my favorites! I changed the standard pickups with TVJones pickups and it sounds amazing! It does however need a tuneup when you buy a guitar like this one. Mine had a anoying buzz when I played it.
Elegant and resonant, the G5122DC is the double-cutaway version of the classic Gretsch® Electromatic® hollow body. Special features include dual-coil humbucking pickups, rosewood-based Adjusto-Matic™ bridge, Bigsby®-licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece and vintage-style chrome-plated tuners.
