1 tabletop 1 month ago Does anyone remember this Stella Artois advert from the late 90s/early 00s? Whilst I was aware of seeing Gretsch guitars in shots of The Beatles and the Monkees this was the image that got me hooked. It's the simplicity (although I now realise that they airbrushed out the volume and tone knob) and those curves. I didn't know this was a Streamliner at the time and shortly after this I acquired a '63 Double Anniversary like Brian Jones' which I thought was close enough. How were Stella allowed to use a Gretsch in their ad? Did they pay?....I assume they must've talked with Gretsch.
