    There's an old Gretsch amp that's been in my family for like 40 years. I believe my uncle traded Fender Twin for it. Anyway, no matter how hard I research, I can't find a damn thing about it. Can anyone offer any insight? Below is the only online picture I could find (though the music store sold it long ago and remembered nothing about it).

    Anyone? I'm going to visit him soon and think it would make him really happy if I could find some stuff out!
     
  3. Hi.

    Well, I'd say You need to give it a little bit of time, vintage Gretch amps aren't something everyone is expert about.

    From the very, very little I know about those amps (seen only one or two in person), is that they tend to look about the same regardless of the amp section, so some details or pics of the amp is def. needed.

    Regards
    Sam

    They weren't at all successful, I've never even seen one. I doubt enough of them still exist to support an owners forum.

    It actually works as both a guitar AND bass amp (how cool!). It was stereo, bass, and treble modes, with 2 10" speakers and 1 15" speaker.

    I will definitely check the Gretsch pages right now!
