The Gretsch bloodline runs deep with striking looks thanks to sparkle binding, chrome-finished hardware, and that unmistakable Gretsch attitude. Of course the brand has been closely associated with rockabiliy, but these guitars are capable of anything you throw at them. Classic appointments flood Gretsch guitars, from TV Jones pickups, original Filter'Tron pickups, and Bigsby vibrato tailpieces.
