It should have Alnico Hi Sen Filtertrons. Around the time FMIC took over manufacture and marketing of Gretsch in late 2002, early 2003, the stock Gretsch Filtertrons switched from Ceramic to more vintage correct Alnico magnets along with a general upgrade in electronics to fullsize CTS pots, Switchcraft jacks and switches and Belden wiring.
