Gretsch Country Club 6192, and 12-string 6075

1968 "That Great Gretsch Sound" guitar and amplifier catalog page 9

Page 9 details two hollow body instruments, the slightly fuller bodied Gretsch Country Club, and the 12-string hollow body. The Country Club had a large 17" body, like the White Falcon, or Country Gent, yet it had the old-style single cutaway body, and a greater body depth of 2 3/4".

The Gretsch 12-String was first mentioned in the January 1966 price list, but missed inclusion in the previous "Spectacular Sound of the Times" brochure (#32), making its catalog debut on this page.

The April 1968 list price for the Country Club was $475 in Shaded Golden Sunburst (6192), and $500 in Clear Natural (6193). The twelve string was slightly more expensive at $500 for Shaded Golden Sunburst (6075), and $525 for Clear Natural (6076).
