1951 Catalog & other memorabilia


The 1951 catalog now in the Memorabilia section is a very different sort of guitar catalog than most of us are used to. “Your Album of Gretsch Guitars” provides an uncommon glimpse into a pre-rock and roll Gretsch, when guitars were really big, really hollow, and had “orchestra” somewhere in the name or description.

Along with the 1951 catalog, several other catalogs and brochures have also been added, including the 1972 Gretsch Catalog, a 1965 brochure explaining the Floating Sound Unit, catalogs from 1955, 1968 and more.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, the memorabilia section is an interesting look at Gretsch marketing over the years.
