Friedrich Gretsch, a German immigrant, formed the Gretsch Company as a tambourine manufacturer in Brooklyn, New York in 1883. After his unexpected death in 1895, his son, Fred Gretsch Sr. headed the company until his retirement in 1942. Fred Gretsch Jr. headed the company until its sale to the Baldwin Company in 1967.

In the late 1930’s and 1940’s, Gretsch became known for guitars with fancy trim and design inovations. By the mid 1950’s Gretsch emphasis had shifted to electrics. As with earlier acoustics, imaginative finish colors and ornamentation became trademarks of the Gretsch electric line in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

The Anniversary Model, introduced in 1958, commemorates Gretsch’s 75th anniversary. The guitar is 16 inches wide 2 1/2 inches deep with one HiLo-tron pickup, 1 knob on cutaway bout one switch on upper bass bout, roller bridge, “G” tailpiece, single bound top and back, 24 1/2 inch scale, unbound fingerboard, pearl thumb print inlay, unbound peg head and distinctive 2-tone sable green finish.

It has the original case, HiLo-tron paperwork, space control bridge, guarantees and a (12-14-59) price list and the original receipt from Premier-Bristol, Inc., where it was purchased 2-28-61 ($234.00 including tax). For history info on this 6125 green visit Gretsch Gear HQ.
