that's what doesn't square with any mention (they (C &G) were the same..
Can't imagine Jasper making two diameter of same layup, But possible
...and Camco indeed may have used a different layup than Gretsch. But...I bet there was gumwood in those shells, not all maple. Somewhere along the way, an undersized specification made its way into the Camco contract. Then there was the magic that happened in Oak Lawn with the edges.....and both the undersized shell and the precision bearing edge remained, even as production shifted to L.A. They knew they were on to something. They probably didn't care about the layup.
