Music Radar put together a of list of acclaimed Gretsch-wielding artists, ranging from rockabilly pioneers to new-wave metallers.

Below are some of the names on the list…

- Eddie Cochran. This rockabilly pioneer only ever played his Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins hollow-body during his all-too brief life and career, and was recently honored with a 6120 Eddie Cochran Signature Hollow Body model.

- Bo Diddley. Known for his energetic performances, numerous contributions to rock ‘n’ roll and his distinctive G5810 Bo Diddley model, Bo Diddley is true icon and a true Gretsch aficionado.

- Malcom Young. The AC/DC Gretsch-wielding guitarist received his first Gretsch, a 1963 Gretsch Jet Firebird,  from his brother George. Over the years, he added White Falcon guitars to the mix and eventually received his own Gretsch signature model.
