There’s no denying that it’s hard to keep track of the number of manufacturers of acoustic and electric guitars, and with all the competition, there are a lot of brands that get overlooked unfairly – even brands with rock stars who love them.
Gretsch guitars have been in the hands of famous guitarists since Lennon and Clapton, and on through Lou Reed and The Who’s Pete Townshend. More recently, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day favours modern Gretsch electric guitars.
We recommend that anyone looking for a cheap but good electric guitar check out the G2622 Streamliner Center Block with V Stoptail Black, but Gretsch’s range includes a wide range of eye-catching and excellent guitars, including the beautiful Round-Neck Resonators with their brass body bells giving that ‘hobo jungle’ feel.
Gretsch also produce fine blues banjos for those who prefer that classic bluesy, folksy twang.
