The Gretsch Book: A Complete History Of Gretsch Electric Guitars is a richly illustrated and enticing profiles of exceptional electric guitars. The narrative begins in the 1880s with the founding of the company by German immigrant Friedrich Gretsch. This well-established family owned guitar maker struck fame and fortune in the mid-1950s when it releases Chet Atkins's "signature" series of guitars. Then, in the early '60s, George Harrison played Gretsch guitars on recordings and in live performances with the Beatles -- and the company made history with all-time peak production levels. The Gretsch Book provides a backstage tour of this wonderfully inventive guitar manufacture which became known for idiosyncratic designs using unconventional colors and finishes, odd gadgetry, and unusual names (Country Gentleman, White Falcon, Corvette, Bikini, Beat, Twist, Astro-Jet, etc. ). The Gretsch Book features these and many other models from the 1940s through 1995 in rare guitars photographed specifically for this book. -- Midwest Book Review
