Gretsch Amps

Gretsch Grill Cloth where to buy?

Hi,

I`m looking for new front fabric and logotypes for my vintage amp 6159 built by Valco in 1962.

It's been 55 years. I doubt that you can find original material anymore. Good luck on finding something close.

Paul Setzer here might be able to help you with the logo.

Good luck.

Supro and Gretsch amp logos on eBay. Original grillecloth is unobtanium.

Send me a photo of what you want, and tell me how much you need. I'll see what I can do.

Hi Billy, this is how it looks, yellow-beige with horizontal silver threads. I need a piece 50 cm high and 70 cm wide.

I found a similar amp on the net, where you can see the logos on the front, though "Bass Amp" in upper left corner is damaged.

None of my grill cloth is metric.

That's about 9 square microfurlongs Billy

Ok Billy, that´s close to 20" high and 28" wide. If you have a suitable grill cloth for sale, I would be happy to buy it whatever width it is above 28"

Thanks for the link, I´ve searched it and they don´t seem to have what I´m looking for.

Otter & Billy, good luck making America great again. With your attitude it will not happen.

If I could make America metric, I'd consider that a win.

Though the furlong/firkin/fortnight system is my personal favorite.

I'm going to use that but I'll still measure cricket pitches in chains.
