About the manufacturer : Gretsch was founded in 1883 by a German immigrant named Friedrich Gretsch. Gretsch's best years started in the mid 1950s when the company introduced distinctive models of electric guitars, including the 6120 and White Falcon.
The single biggest contribution to Gretsch's success was the addition of Chet Atkins. Atkins was one of the pre-eminent guitarists of his day, and it gave Gretsch a fighting chance against Fender's Telecaster and Stratocaster, and the Gibson Les Paul.
Unfortunately, Gretsch was sold to Baldwin Pianos, becoming a subsidiary. Gretsch's name lost prestige as its models were seen as cheapening. Factory fires in the early 1970s caused serious problems, and production was finally halted by Baldwin in 1981. In 1989, the Gretsch family once again acquired their namesake company, and production began anew. Models throughout the 1990s were high-quality but expensive, and mostly consisted of classic reissues.
Finally, in 2003, Gretsch and Fender reached an agreement giving Fender most control over production and distribution of guitars—and a foothold in the hollowbody guitar market traditionally dominated by Gibson.
