For over 100 years, the name Gretsch has been a staple in the world of popular music. Manufacturing guitars, drums, basses and more for musicians far and wide, Gretsch has a well-earned reputation for excellence. To this day, Gretsch is a family owned and operated company that strives to deliver the best gear possible, especially when it comes to solid body electric guitars. Founded in 1883, Gretsch was originally a manufacturer of banjos, tambourines and drums. It was not until the early 1930s that they began building guitars and the rest, as they say, is history. Over the years Gretsch guitars have always stood out for both their distinct looks and sounds. Because of this, they have garnered the attention of a truly incredible roster of artists. Players such as Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Malcolm Young of AC/DC, Mikel Jollett of the Airbourne Toxic Event, Alex Trimble of the Two Door Cinema Club, and Trever Keith of Face to Face all rock out on gorgeous Gretsch guitars.
The beauty of Gretsch is that they make electric guitars for everyone from a beginner to a master, so you can definitely find one that is perfect for you regardless of your skill level. If you’re looking for your very first guitar, then an option such as the G5410 Electromatic Special Jet Electric Guitar is probably the perfect option for you. With a classic look and shape, this guitar features an anchored Adjustomatic bridge, stop tailpiece and dual-coil pickups that will have your sound ringing out beautifully. Built to be put through the paces, this guitar will quickly have you well on your way to the stage.
Of course, if you’re already an established player looking for a solid body electric guitar that is truly special, you won’t be able to keep your eyes off of the Custom Shop CVT Master Electric Guitar. This instrument is an absolutely incredible reproduction of the first true solid body Gretsch. Built by Steve Stern, Gretsch’s Senior Master Builder, this guitar is as much a piece of history and a work of art as it is an instrument. With top of the line components, including TV Jones Power Tron pickups and a Bigsby tremolo, this guitar will have guitar aficionados salivating at the very sight of it...and once you plug it in? Forget about it.
Gretsch is known for making instruments that sound incredible. Whether you’re a hobbyist, a touring professional, a collector, or anything in between, these guitars represent a high water mark in design and tone that you should be proud to call your own.
