Half a century of that great Gretsch sound.

This illustrated history details a fantastic musical journey--from early developments to modern triumphs! Every model is here, from the White Falcon, Country Gentleman, 6120, and Duo Jet to the ones that time forgot. This book compiles the best of Gretsch's inventions over the past 50 years and tells the stories of their creation and the men who created them.

Of course, attention is paid to the many popular artists who have favored Gretsch guitars over the years, including Pete Townshend, Tom Petty, Alanis Morissette, Chet Atkins, Elvis, Sheryl Crow, John Frusciante, Jimmy Page, and Bo Diddley. Over 100 photos. 8-1/2" x 11", 144 pages.
