This is probably very preemptive seeing as the bass is somewhere up in the air right now on it's 2-day express delivery (only $10 more) from Guitar Center (Glendora, CA store - representing my home state!) to my office. On top of that, to be totally frank with all of you, I'm not even 100% sure that what's being delivered is a Gretsch G2202. It's possible that it might be a G5120. Yes, a guitar. You see, in typical Guitar Center fashion, the used gear description -- "Used Gretsch Guitars G5120 Electromatic Junior Jet Solid Body Electric Guitar Black" -- didn't match the photo (see below) which is of a G2202 bass. What did match was the price on the item page and the price on the hang tag in the photo. I e-mailed the store and, while waiting for a reply, tried GC chat but the guy, while very friendly, wasn't really able to offer any help. I decided to take a chance and hit that "place order" button. Never got a reply from the store. Yeah, I could have waited for the store to open and called but I was impatient so we'll see what arrives tomorrow. Hopefully, I unbox a G2202 (preferably the earlier Korean-made one). If I do... - Pickup: The coveted pickup stays. May swap out the pickup ring. - Tuners: I found a good deal on a set of used Hipshot tuners with 1/2" posts but I don't know what size posts are on the stock tuners. - Knobs: Will be replaced with Gretsch arrow knobs. - Electronics: Will be replaced with CTS pots, Switchcraft jack, chrome jack plate. I'll reuse the existing cap since I don't really want to change the tone, just improve the quality and dependability. Then I'll line the control cavity with copper foil tape. - Bridge: I'm thinking Hipshot "A" style unless I find a good deal on something used. I'm also toying with the idea of dropping in a piezo bridge. Not 100% sure about that yet. Honestly, I probably won't but if I do it will change the electronics obviously. I would likely add a switch or make one of the pots a push-pull to engage the piezo and then either a 2nd volume knob or blend knob to control the level. - Strings: Will be replaced with D'Addario tapewounds because I haven't used tapes in years, not since switching exclusively to flatwounds, and want to try them again. So yeah, I'm definitely counting my chickens before they hatch here. We'll find out tomorrow if I'm the new owner of an awesome bass or if I'm returning a guitar.
