35 American Orchestra Thirty-Five

Debuting in 1933 in the Gretsch No. 33 catalog, the 35 was one of the early Gretsch branded guitars, and was -- like the other models in the American Orchestra line -- initially named after its wholesale price.
None This model is thought to have been discontinued once the 1939 launch of the Synchromatic line occurred, when it was replaced by the model 30 at the lower end of the new Gretsch archtop line-up.
