Brand - GRETSCH

“THAT GREAT GRETSCH SOUND!"

 

OVER THE SPAN OF FOUR GENERATIONS, THE GRETSCH COMPANY DEVELOPED WHAT CAME TO BE KNOWN AS “THAT GREAT GRETSCH SOUND.”

With its emphasis on hand-craftsmanship and commitment to quality over a storied 135 years and counting, Gretsch has pioneered new designs and manufacturing techniques, winning endorsements from some of the music industry’s most respected artists, including Chet Atkins, Eddie Cochran, Billy Duffy, Bono, Duane Eddy, George Harrison, Brian Setzer, Stephen Stills and Malcolm Young.

 

In late 2002 a deal was struck for Fender Musical Instruments Corp. to handle Gretsch Guitars manufacturing and distribution, allowing "That Great Gretsch Sound" to be heard in even more places around the world.
