Founded in 1883 by Fred Gretsch, with guitar production beginning in the 30's, not many companies can boast of the longevity that the Gretsch Company can. With Gretsch guitars having players like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer, Duane Eddy, Bo Diddley, Eddie Cochran, John Lennon, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Brian Jones, Pete Townsend and Malcolm Young, how can you not respect that great Gretsch sound?
Known for big guitars with larger than life persona's nothing else looks like a Gretsch. Thanks to aesthetically pleasing functional hardware like the Bigsby Tremolo, TV Jones pickups, or Dice Knobs, the Gretsch vibe is seriously cool, retro and firmly rooted in the 50's.
