But it should!It suddenly dawns on me that what we need - for no good reason I can think of except that colors and their names are so cool, and so evocative - is a list of all the named colors Gretsch has ever used on guitars. (We might be forgiven for leaving out the Custom Shop.)Because, after all, one of the things that has always distinguished Gretsch in the market is color. An online catalog of all of them would celebrate that legacy.In an ideal world, our compendium would include at least one photo example of a guitar in each color, along with fields for when the color was used, and for which models. In a world where a tireless curator had the time and persistent enough fascination, the master list would be sortable by guitar model, year/era, and color family.I nominate Tartan Phantom and KCEddie (who heads the Blue Section, of course.)But just think about your favorite Gretsch colors, the ones you know by name, and turn them over in your memory. You can almost taste them. They're like a little polychromatic vacation for your senses.I mean, just the current crop includes a psychedelic cornucopia of delicious hues. Reading an entire inclusive list from, say 1954 to the present, would be practically pornographic - much less seeing a guitar in each shade.There could even be special subsections for varieties of Cadillac Green and Flagstaff Sunset and could the real Gretsch Orange please stand up.
