Short or Long Switch?
If your guitar is thinner than 2 ⅛” then you will need a short switch.
Split or Solid Shaft Pots?
Electromatics, Streamliners, and ‘89 -’03 (pre-Fender) Gretsch guitars will require split shaft pots if you want to keep your stock knobs. Vintage and post-Fender pro-level Gretsch guitars will require solid shaft pots to fit stock knobs. If you are upgrading with our Gretsch or TV Jones knobs then you will need solid shaft pots.
Fender-era Pro Gretsch
The pro-level Gretsch guitars of the current era already come with quality components like the ones we use. If replacing the harness, you will need solid shaft pots for your stock knobs.
Metric Pot Replacement
Metric pots (like on Electromatics and Streamliners) generally come mounted into smaller mounting holes (5/16"). These will need to be enlarged to 3/8" with a reamer or small sanding bit to fit our CTS pots.
Switch Tip Replacement
Electromatics, Streamliners, and ‘89 -’03 (pre-Fender) Gretsch guitars will require a new switch tip with a TV Jones harness. The stock switch tips for these guitars are metric and will not thread onto the new switch.
