Gretsch advertisement (1965) Chet Atkins says:

Mid sixties grestch advertisement for the Chet Atkins series of Gretsch guitars, and the Gretsch Country Gentleman in particular. This ad ran fom very late 1964 right through to 1966, and refers to George Harrison of the Beatles, who was one of the instruments early adopters.

Success comes in many shapes. But the shape that has taken the music world by storm ... is the shape of Chet Atkins' famous Gretsch Country Gentleman hollow body guitar. Among the top artists who play it is a member of that world-famous Liverpool rock 'n' roll group. Gretsch's popularity with the big stars can be traced to its advanced styling, tone, playing ease and beautiful sound - all made possible by the many Gretsch electronic break- throughs. Their unique designs and fabulous colors make them stand-outs wherever they're played.
