Gretsch are possibly best known for their extensive range of hollow body and semi-hollow electric guitars which are perfect for rockabilly jazz and blues. This means they’re also great acoustic instrument makers, including guitars, mandolins, ukuleles and banjos. Gretsch guitars have got a characteristic crunchy mid-range to their tones thanks to their choice of pickup (the Filtertron) and the Bigsby trem means players often coax smooth, wavy clean and crunch tones from them.
Gretsch guitars have always had the reputation of being a classy brand, their guitars are used all around the world by many famous faces. Gretsch have been around since 1883 producing banjos and drums, their knowledge over the decades have now made them some of the most sought-after vintage guitars in the world!
Below we have a review from Nasar over at our Bolton store:
The Gretsch Country Gentleman
'I think this guitar is an absolutely outstanding addition to anyone’s collection as it has the looks, the sound and most importantly the playability! The gorgeous gold hardware complimented by the beautiful walnut satin finish certainly makes this instrument an instant eye-catcher! It is also an extremely playable guitar as it offers; a nice low action on a comfortable feeling neck, Gotoh Locking Tuners, so it holds its tuning exceptionally well and of course the versatile “Filter’tron” pickups to make this guitar perfect for pretty much any playing style'
