2011 Gretsch Showcase: More Artist Sightings


The Gretsch Showcase, with its colorful and stylishly designed guitars, seems to be an eye-stopper every year at the NAMM show in Anaheim, Cali.

Below are some photos of just a few of the musicians who stopped by to check out the goods …

Neon Trees bassist Branden Campbell stops to test out a Gretsch bass.

Airborne Toxic Event drummer Daren Taylor came through the showcase sporting our Gretsch “Since 1883″ field bag.

And thanks to the stunning display featuring the Gretsch Custom Shop G6128T-GH George Harrison “Tribute” Duo Jet guitar and other Harrison memorabilia, the Gretsch booth proved to be an even larger attraction in 2011.

For instance, although Keith Urban was on his way to the Fender Custom Shop booth, he couldn’t help but notice the Harrison display. The country superstar stopped and watched the nearly four-minute long video, also available now here, that tells the story behind and making of this unique guitar.

Rest assured, this was a repeated occurrence throughout the weekend  because as beloved as the Beatles and George Harrison are, the tribute model quite simply stole the show!

Neon Trees Add Intimate Club Run


Alt-rock band Neon Trees has added a two-week intimate U.S. club run this November.

“I don’t want a single barrier blocking us from you, and I wanna sing sing sing our hearts out and make some history this November,” writes frontman Tyler Glenn in his Oct. 29 website post to fans.

The lead singer also promised low-priced tickets, new merch and a freshly shorn head each night. Neon Trees will be supported on the tour by New Politics and Young The Giant.

Watch their video below for new single “1983.” Although the video takes the Neon Trees back to the ’80s with references to hit movies like Big and Lost Boys, there’s nothing outdated about bassist Branden Campbell’s sleek Gretsch White Falcon Bass.
