I got the gretsch! Who the hell is this guy???


For those who don't know, Dan worked in the Gretsch Quality Control Department from 1957 to 1970. Most likely, he signed the OK card on your vintage Gretsch. He's written a collection of stories from those years at Gretsch, and I encourage you to get a copy!

He also has a web page where you can learn more about him.


Great book to have in your collection. A must for any die-hard Gretsch fan. Wonderful stories of how it was back in the day.


Definitely worth your time and money as the stories are all pretty entertaining and it is written as if he's having a conversation with you (always a plus).


Well Dan; I've just finished reading your book and I'm glad I purchased it. I'm going to make good use of the chord charts included in the book. I have a 6124 from November of 1967 and I also have the dreaded Tone-Twister in the case. I don't have the O.K. card however. Must have lost it through the years. I was only 17 when I purchased the guitar.


Thanks for bumping this. I just ordered a copy.
