Gretsch electric guitars have a style all their owna 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 Gretschs 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 Bacons 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 collectors guide to every production electric Gretsch model ever made.

About the Author:

TONY BACON (Bristol) writes about musical instruments, musicians, and music. He is a co-founder of Backbeat UK and Jawbone Press. Bacon's books include Squier Electrics: 30 Years of Fender's Budget Guitar Brand, The Ultimate Guitar Book, and History of the American Guitar.

Review:

''The Gretsch Electric Guitar Book is the latest book in British native Tony Bacon's guitar series which the press release states is a 'carefully researched text partnered with a gallery of full-color pictures of great guitars, rare memorabilia, and of famous Gretsch players.' I couldn't agree more.'' --Pasadena Independent

''The Gretsch Electric Guitar Book is a must read for guitar buffs . . . [E]ven though the book is only 160 pages, it manages to cover a deep amount of history in an insane amount of detail.'' --Rebeat magazine

''The book is a complete and comprehensive celebration of the 60 year reign of The Gretsch Company and these wonderful instruments we know, play, or listen to stars play, and love with insights from the people who design, build, and sell them and from these iconic musicians who play them.'' --Guitar Girl magazine
