This guitar came to us as a brand spanking new Gretsch 5220 in Dark Cherry. It has had the full Rabid Dog Relic treatment from Leadbetter Guitar Co here in the Nepean Music Workshop. We really went wild with this one! 

Electronics

Bridge pickup is a Lollar Imperial humbucker. Neck is a Seymour Duncan SH2. These are some of the finest humbuckers available and an incredible upgrade. As always, we have simplified the other electronics down to a 3 way toggle, single master volume and Switchcraft Jack socket) installed on our Custom aluminium name plate/jack plate).

Trem

This guitar features a custom shortcut Maestro style tremolo system with a Leadbetter Rabid Fog Relic logo. 


Custom finish

Here in the Leadbetter Guitar Co Workshop at Nepean Music we have hand sanded the poly top coat away, relic’d  the colour coat to give the feel and look of a much older players guitar, then applied a new ultra thin custom Vintage Matt Clear with 0.7% yellow added for vintage styling and feel. 

Setup 

Precision setup with Dunlop 10-46 strings  by Joel in the Nepean Music Workshop.
