Bruno Mars Reps Gretsch On Cover Of April’s Playboy


Bruno Mars brought out a special green Gretsch G6118 on the cover of the April edition of Playboy, which is on newsstands now.

Mars is only the 10th male to appear on the cover, joining Peter Sellers (April 1964), Burt Reynolds (October 1979), Steve Martin (January 1980), Donald Trump (March 1990), Dan Aykroyd (August 1993), Jerry Seinfeld (October 1993) Leslie Nielsen (February 1996) Gene Simmons, (March 1999) and Seth Rogen (April 2009).

He’s also the first to hold a Gretsch guitar.

In a Q&A inside the magazine, Mars picked the legendary Jimi Hendrix when asked if he could play with any musician, dead or alive.

“I think he’s the greatest guitar player in the world, and I would want to see him do his thing in person,” Mars said. Ā ”He’s the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place.”
