In celebration of Gretsch’s 125th Anniversary, Fred Gretsch, president of The Gretsch Company, and Joe Carducci, marketing manager of Gretsch Guitars, embarked on a 17-city summer tour of the United States.
Gretsch dealers across the country welcomed Fred and his fans – they were treated to a multimedia presentation featuring notable Gretsch historic dates and musical performances, as well as finger-style picking by celebrated guitarist, Bobby Gibson, a performing member of the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society. Fred signed autographs and handed out gifts to attendees.
Rocky Schiano, store owner of Street Sounds in Brooklyn, NY, received an extra special gift during Gretsch''s tour. Fred and Joe presented Rocky with a special proclamation acknowledging his contribution to the Gretsch legacy.
