    Got a question about Gretsch pickup surrounds.

    I'm considering building my own Gretsch-O-Caster. If I have the body routed for two humbuckers, will the traditional silver gretsch pickup surround cover the humbucker hole?

    Does anyone have dimensions on the gretsch pickup ring? Or can anyone who has a Les Paul and a gretsch measure both and let me know? That would rule... thanks.
