GALLERY: Golden Era of Gretsch
March 29, 2011
The guitars conceived and produced by the Gretsch Company after WWII represent some of the more unique sounding and visually dynamic models available during the ''50s and into the mid-''60s.
'66 Anniversary model 6118
In 1960, the popular Anniversary models inherited the HiloTron pickup technology, replacing the previous FilterTron units, which remained in higher-end Gretsch electrics. This mid-'60s specimen is in a rare and attractive custom white finish. (Photo courtesy of Steve Wilson)
