"What is your dream guitar?" It's a question that every player will ask themselves sooner or later, and more often than not, their answer will be a Gretsch. With a design that dates back to the 1930's, Gretsch guitars were highly sought after during the 50's and 60's. And throughout the decades that followed, the unmistakable look and sound of a Gretsch guitar became the go-to choice instrument of rockabilly swingers and revivalist rockers from around the globe. Today, the Gretsch name is still amongst the most widely recognizable guitar brands, and can easily be found gracing the world's biggest stages and legendary recording studios.
When you buy a Gretsch guitar, beautiful craftsmanship and impeccable precision go without saying. It's what Gretsch has built their reputation on after all and exactly why some of the world's most legendary player's continue to identify with Gretsch guitar models. From Chet Atkins to Brian Setzer, Gretsch has firmly cemented their place in rock'n'roll history, and throughout their extensive selection of electric and acoustic models, you'll have no problem finding a Gretsch model that perfectly represents your personality and playing style.
Looking for an exceptional dreadnought? The Gretsch Sunburst G5024E Rancher dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar is remarkably affordable given its astounding construction and high quality materials. Features on this guitar include a bound solid spruce top with scalloped "X" bracing, laminated mahogany back and sides, and a Fishman Sonicore Pickup and Isys+ preamp system. On the stage or in the recording studio, this guitar is ideal for any setting. In the electric guitar section, the Gretsch Custom Shop 10th Anniversary Duo Jet NOS electric is a startling red rocker with special pearloid appointments, Seymour Duncan pickups and a gorgeous tailpiece. This one-of-a-kind model is super limited to only 10, and will surely knock the socks off of anyone lucky enough to grab one before they're gone.
Some guitars have a feel and charm that's all their own. So much, in fact, that they inspire many knockoff brands who try to achieve the same spirit and charisma as the original. Gretsch is a name that has been often imitated, yet never duplicated... and as any proud owner of a Gretsch will tell you, playing one is an experience that is simply unequalled.
