Gretsch guitars now in-stock at Musicroom York

Banks Musicroom York have taken delivery of a new range of Gretsch guitars.

The Gretsch Electromatic Collection offer exceptional quality and value for money and feel and sound great to play. As a range they have a distinct and individual style and tone, yet players from across the genres will discover a line of highly versatile guitars that perform at a level many higher end instruments aspire to.

Dean, one of the in-store guitar experts at Musicroom York has been putting the new range of Gretsch guitars through their paces.

Speaking to the Musicroom blog, Dean said, “I love these guitars. They feel and play like a dream, with a sound and style all their own, yet they’re also some of the most versatile guitars out there.

You’ll see Gretsch guitars played my artists across the genres, from rockabilly players such as Brian Setzer to rock n’ roll bands like ACDC and The Cult.”

The new Gretsch range features four categories of guitar. Firstly, the full hollow bodies: great sounding, chambered instruments that you’d associate with artists like Chet Atkins, Duane Eddy and, as mentioned above, Brian Setzer.

Next up: the Jets and Penguins models that were famously played by George Harrison. These guitars are also chambered to give a much more open sound whilst being lighter than a Les Paul.

Rounding out the Electromatic line are Gretsch’s  solid bodied guitars such as the Corvette are, which offer players a tighter, punchier option for those who need that extra bit of drive to power their tone.

Gretsch also do a great range of budget to high end acoustic guitars, and have just relaunched their roots collection, tracing the company’s history back to their 1883 origins as producers of banjos, tambourines and drums.

The Electronmatic are already flying off the shelves so be quick if you don’t want to miss out. Why not head in-store over the bank holiday weekend and try one for yourself?
