Tone Wood The Gretsch “Super George” by Frans Elferink

The Gretsch “Super George”

The Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose, the Chet Atkins Tennessean, The Atkins Super Axe, The Super Chet, The Chet Atkins Country Gentleman…just to name a few. Gretsch guitars is Chet. 

Than the sky cleared and there is that young guy from the UK. George Harrison (guitar player from the Beatles) is maybe more associated with the Gretsch Country Gentleman than Chet Atkins. George Harrison played his Gretsch Country Gentleman in the begin period of the Beatles the early 60’s. We have the Brain Setzer the Bo Diddley the Duane Eddy and we should have the “Super George” too!
