Gretsch Guitars and The Arts Music Store
“That Great Gretsch Sound” has long been available to customers at The Arts Music Store as the Gretsch company’s name has long been synonymous with excellent dynamic-sounding guitars, basses and drums. The roots of the family-operated company can be traced back to 1883 when a German immigrant named Friedrich Gretsch settled in Brooklyn, New York and christened his new music shop. Along with guitars, Friedrich manufactured drums, tambourines, ukuleles, mandolins and banjos and became well known for his commitment to quality and excellent craftsmanship. If we fast forward to 2019 we find the Gretsch name is still regarded with the same respect and revered the same way it was back then as the company now serves its clients from its headquarters in Savannah, Georgia .
- Gretsch guitars are famous for their creative custom colours along with their fantastic tone, vibe and style.
- The company’s legendary acoustic guitars are crafted from select materials and woods such as spruce, maple, rosewood and mahogany to create the classic and distinctive Gretsch sound.
- The hollow body guitars are well known for delivering deep resonance and rich fullness for a big-body sound which features acoustic nuance and splendid clarity.
- Because of the Filtertron pickups, Gretsch guitars provide a unique crunchy, crispy-sounding mid-range to their tones.
