Page 6 shows two instruments: Gretsch's only (at this point) bass model, the PX6070 bass, and the Gretsch Clipper PX6186 hollow body. The PX6070 was an interesting bass, harking back to the 1950s when it wasn't clear that the bass playing public would accept an instrument played horizontally with a strap, over a traditional upright. The text suggests three playing positions, horizontal, upright or lap:
It was a long scale single pickup bass, but by the time of the next 1968 Gretsch catalog, the bass line had expanded to include another three models, offering dual pickup and shorter scale options.
The Clipper is the least expensive hollowbody electric listed in this catalog, and is quite simply appointed - but it is still a pretty nice guitar. Only available in Shaded Golden Sunburst, it is also the thinnest hollowbody guitar in the catalog
1965 US prices for these models were $375 for the 6070 bass, and $195 for the Clipper.
