Premier Guitar recently caught up with Doug “Red” Redler, otherwise known as longtime tech for the Black Crowes’ Rich Robinson, to run through the gear Robinson is using on the band’s latest tour.
While looking at Robinson’s guitars, Redler pulled out several Gretsch gems, including a Japanese-made Black Falcon and a Streamliner (see photo above) that was was damaged during Hurricane Sandy and repaired by Steve Stern of the Gretsch Custom Shop.
Redler explained that the Streamliner is used on the songs ”Feather” and “Good Morning Captain,” noting that Robinson likes it for “anything that gets really loud with a lot of feedback.”
Check out Robinson’s collection in the clip below and visit the Black Crowes’ official website for more information.

For the September issue of Guitarist, there is a feature on some of the new Gretsch Center Block guitars.
As such, the music magazine held a photo shoot with model Kimberley Holladay. Photographer Philip Sowels had Holladay pose in various outfits with several of the new models, including the single- and double-cutaway Center Block Falcons.
As Guitarist put it, “In what seems to be one of those no-brainer, should-have-done- it-50-years-ago ideas, Gretsch has released a new range of guitars with a solid lump of wood through their middles, slimmed bodies and updated hardware for practicality’s sake.”
You can get the issue here to see what Guitarist thinks, and footage from the photo shoot can be seen below.

MusicRadar recently noted the Gretsch G9500 Jim Dandy Flat Top on their list of top 25 budget acoustic guitars.
“The well-built Jim Dandy injects some much-needed fun and character into the typically bland entry-level acoustic market,” said the reviewer. “It also reminds us that beyond our shed loads of expensive gear, we should be able to get a tune out of anything. You just know that Mark Knopfler or Joe Bonamassa could pick up a Jim Dandy and make it sing. Well, you can, too – this guitar isn’t just for beginners.”
You can view the entire list here and watch a demo of the Jim Dandy Flat Top below.
