If I would like a gretsh to sound like it has more of a early to mid 60's tone what mods, what pickups would I need to use in any of the above guitars. I know the 5420's p/u's are different, modeled after later pickups. Need to decide what to buy and how much mods will cost, the important ones like pickups and bridge. Thanks
