Although Gibson and Fender are the kings of American guitars, Gretsch has a much longer history than either of these giants. Friedrich Gretsch established his musical instrument company, which produced banjos, tambourines, and drums, before Leo Fender was even born. The first Gretsch guitar models came out in the 1930s and were a success throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Chet Atkins favored the brand so much that he had several models named after him, and George Harrison played one of the company's guitars on the Beatles' famed performance on the Ed Sullivan show. Other fans over the years include names like John Lennon, Brian Jones, and Lou Reed. The company's name still carries a lot of weight, and many players praise its guitars. The sellers on eBay have a great selection of new and used instruments from this brand, including its famous guitars and its celebrated Gretsch drums.
