Gretsch legacy

In the '50s, Gretsch guitars played by Eddie Cochrane and Chet Atkins shaped the sound of pop music. In the '60s, Gretsch defined the sound of The Who's rock opera, Tommy. The Beatles used them, and so did Jimmy Page, Stephen Stills, Brian Setzer, and everyone from Aerosmith to Billy Zoom. In fact, Gretsch guitars are what gave Bono his "Edge." In 1985, Fred Gretsch III took over the leadership of the company and has brought back the great Gretsch sound in all its glory with reissues of the finest classic Gretsch guitars.
