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.

'62 Country Club model 6196
The Country Club, first released as the Electro II model in 1951, is one of the longest running models from the Gretsch Golden Era. In the early 1960s it underwent a temporary thinning of the body depth and adoption of the string-muting feature. This specimen is a model 6196, which corresponds to its attractive Cadillac Green finish. (Photo courtesy of Ron O'Keefe)
