About This Listing

Item: FE9252003719

The Gretsch Round-Up was first conceived in 1953, when country and western music was gaining traction on the pop charts. Its over-the-top cowboy-style decorations were aimed at aspiring C W guitarists. With its tooled leather body binding, fretboard inlays that were etched with steer heads and cacti, steer's head logo on the headstock and pickguard and a belt buckle with a homely wagon-train scene that was attached to the tailpiece gave this guitar a unrelenting Western tribute. This was all topped off by a dramatic knotty pine top with a “G” brand embellished on the top.

 

So as part of our "Why Didn't They Ever Make This Model Before" series, I asked Stephen Stern to duplicate his Roundup magic on a double cut body as if Gretsch would have in 1962.  With all the attention to detail Stephen carefully took every measurement and spec from an original 1955 Gretsch Roundup and applied it to this  '62 version.  A both visually stunning instrument that will dazzle you with its effortless playability and classic Gretsch sound. This guitar defines the word classic to a tee.
