    Hey guys, so I play a Gretsch G2210 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass, and I’m thinking about replacing the pickups. The stock pickups are a little too muddy for me, so I’m looking for something with a little more twang and a bigger high pass. If you guys have any suggestions, please reply!

    Pickups ? Thought there was only one.

    TvJones thundertron comes to mind, but there would be some routing necessary , not a direct drop in.

    You should contact TV Jones through their website and ask them about a direct replacement for that model in a Thundertron or Filtertron. I bet they make one.

    I don't know anything about your Gretsch, but if it has 250k pots in it, you might try replacing them with 500k or 1M. This mod is supposed to do what you describe above, and it's pretty cheap.

    I had a G2220 (the two pickup model version of your bass) and installed TV Jones Thundertrons in it. There was no routing required, although I did have to slightly file the pickup ring to make it fit. Here's what it sounds like with the TV Jones pickups: http://youtu.be/9boHZpSF5HQ
