Premier Guitar: Gretsch Mod

The guitar we started with was pretty good, but the one we ended up with had far greater depth and dimensionality to its tones and playing flexibility. Dressing the nut and fret ends made worlds of difference for playability, and the Curtis Novak pickups are fantastically dynamic—every bit as vocal as any good gold-foil I’ve heard, but far quieter. The guitar now has a bright midrange character that just sings. It’s equally at home with clean tones and gritty fuzz. Honestly, this Gretsch may be the biggest surprise of the group!

Hi Curtis, they sound fantastic mate! I played the Tele through a Fender Princeton Blackface and it rocks!! – Fred Fairbrass

Right Said Fred

Using this pickup in my Fender it feels like every element of the tone is simply there — clear, well-defined low end, robust mids and highs that have a wonderfully smooth presence — all unhindered, immediate and full. Thanks Curtis for building my dream Precision pickup!” – Byron
