Gretsch diecast rims


Did Gretsch make or offer chrome over brass die cast rims, either USA made or offshore made ? Any facts would be greatly appreciated / not opinions. Thanks


No sir. Their earlier stick choppers were nickel or chrome over brass (or steel, at times) but their die-cast have always been a zinc alloy.


Man, Nipthorn! You lucked into the only guitar forum frequented by one of the only drummers with both the answer to such an arcane question and a lust for Gretsch Guitars.
