Gretsch Guitars - "That Great Gretsch Sound!"

Started back in the 1880s by the German immigrant Friedrich Gretsch, Friedrich Gretsch used his talent for manufacturing everything from drums to tambourines to pave the road to international notoriety. After a brief stint with the Baldwin Piano Company, Gretsch Guitars was once again helmed by the Gretsch family in 1989, but now by Fred W. Gretsch - Friedrich Gretsch's great-great-grandson.
