Raising Gretsch bridge pickup: need advice


Alright, I'm a little bit lost about all the different gretsch pickup mounts and whatnot.

I just picked up a 6122jr and need to get the bridge pickup up higher than it will currently go. From what I gather, this involves putting some mousepad rubber up underneath the whole pickup? Are there any shims to pop/remove, or is that on different gretsch models?

Anything else I need to know for the process? Will I need longer screws after the rubber is added? Thanks.


On my G6120 and G6119, the stock screws were long enough. I just pulled out the pickup, added the shim material (foam rubber) and put it back together. Pretty easy process actually.
