Encore une histoire avec des migrants ! (salauds !!)

April is Guitar Month at Sims Music, so we are going to be celebrating some of our favorite brands all month long. Today’s #simsvendorspotlight is Gretsch Guitars. In 1883 at just 27 years old, German immigrant, Friedrich Gretsch, began manufacturing banjos, tambourines, and drums out of his shop in Brooklyn, New York. Gretsch quickly became a leading manufacturer of American musical instruments, having much success with drum manufacturing. It was not until 1939 that Gretsch introduced its first electric guitar, the Electromatic. Once Gretsch introduced guitars to the lineup, It was not long until Chet Atkins became an endorser. This endorsement catapulted Gretsch into the spotlight alongside competitors Gibson, Fender and Rickenbacker. Gretch guitars have since been seen in the arms of musicians like Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Eric Clapson, Pete Townshend (the Who), Lady Gaga, Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day), and Brian Setzer. . . . . . . .
