WAYNE'S 1955 GRETSCH NEW
YORKER PROJECT
Jessie,
Here are some pics of the my 1955 Gretsch
New Yorker. I was important to me that I install
a pickup system that did not alter or require
drilling holes in the guitar. Thanks for working
with me to make this possible. I made a small
clamp type plate to mount the tone and
volume controls in the bottom F hole. I then
routed the external end pin jack out through
the top F hole in the guitar. I made a wooden
holder for the end pin jack and attatched the
wooden holder to the guitar using the original
guitar end pin.

No holes drilled and your dual pickup system
gives me control and the rock-a-billy sound I
was looking for from this nice old Gretsch.
WAYNE REALLY DID A
GREAT JOB UPGRADING
HIS VINTAGE GRETSCH
WITH MODERN
ELECTRONICS WHILE NOT
COMPROMISING THE
HISTORICAL INTEGRITY OF
THIS BEAUTIFUL
INSTRUMENT. THIS GUITAR
TRULY IS A SHOWPIECE
AND A GREAT PART OF THE
GRETSCH HERITAGE.
THANKS FOR SHARING
YOUR PROJECT WAYNE!!
