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 Viking model 6189
The Viking models were top-of-line guitars for Gretsch in the mid-'60s. With similar specifications and features to the lauded White Falcon, these 17" wide, true hollowbody archtops, were produced in the traditional sunburst and natural finishes, but are also found in a less common Cadillac Green variation as illustrated here.
