1 Carl Boland 2 years ago Hello- any Gretsch uke experts out there? Just obtained my first uke, and preferring older/vintage instruments, picked up this Gretsch 'standard' ukulele from eBay, one owner no less. She says her Dad gave it to her about 1960, she thinks new at the time. Came to this site to find out more about Gretsch ukes. I saw elsewhere on the website a comment that some Gretsch branded instruments were not actually made by Gretsch, including ukes? So my question is, does anyone know if any Gretsch ukes were actually made by Gretsch, is mine one of them, and if not made by Gretsch, by whom? Whatever, is nice sounding little thing. I wish I could say I had a Gretsch guitar, I always coveted my uncle's Country Gentleman (he was a Chet fan), but he sold it without telling me. But I have a 1970 Gibson ES335 now which suits me fine.
