Features
The Gretsch Electric Guitar Book by : Tony Bacon


Gretsch electric guitars have a style all their own – a glitzy; wacky; retro charm that over the years has drawn players from all kinds of popular music; from timeless stars to unknown teens. The Beatles; Chet Atkins; Duane Eddy; and Brian Setzer all made their mark with Gretsch; and new bands continually discover and fall in love with the Falcons; Gents; 6120s; Jets; and the rest.

The Gretsch Electric Guitar Book comes right up to the present; including Gretsch's alliance to the powerful Fender company; a move that has done wonders for the reliability and playability of the modern Gretsch axe. Every great model is here; but the book also tells the story of the lesser-known guitars and the projects that almost never happened. There are archival and fresh interviews with Gretsch personnel over the years and with many leading Gretsch players; including Chet Atkins; Billy Duffy; Duane Eddy; and Brian Setzer.

In the tradition of Tony Bacon's best-selling series of guitar books; his updated and revised story of Gretsch is three great volumes in one: a compendium of luscious pictures of the coolest guitars; a gripping story from early exploits to the most recent developments; and a detailed collector's guide to every production electric Gretsch model ever made.
