Vintage Gretsch Guitars

1966 Annie in factory gold*


Maybe that's the guitar that started the legend of the Gold Duke. At least as far as I know, it's still an unconfirmed legend.

There are pics of the Gold and Silver Duke in the first Bacon and Day book. They say that their both from 1966; they both came with the Gretsch horseshoe Bigsby.


The Silver Duke guitars were created in August of '66 (not sure the Gold Duke is even a thing beyond that one in the Bacon book). The Corvette I posted was still blue at that point, so would not have influenced their creation.
