Sadly, scientists and medical researchers have reported that, despite the many recent advancements in technology, there still ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues. But, playing Gretsch's Eddie Cochran signature model will certainly help you chase them away for a little while! Cochran was an incandescent musical talent that accomplished a lifetime's worth of groundbreaking guitar work in just 21 years, and it is impossible to overstate his vast influence on rock music. The list of artists who have covered his tunes reads like a Who's Who of legendary rock musicians: The Who, Springsteen, Van Halen, Zeppelin, Bowie, and Hendrix, just to name a few.
Now, Gretsch has produced an Eddie Cochran Signature model, and it is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest guitar players ever to lay finger to string. It wears a stylish Western Maple Stain finish on its laminated maple body, which looks great with its gold hardware and white binding--serious classic car vibes here, folks! And, the fingerboard has cactus, steerhead, and fence designs sitting within each block inlay to cultivate a sweet-looking Western vibe. All in all, the aesthetic borrows from rock, rockabilly, and country looks to create a pleasing smorgasbord of delightful cosmetic appointments.
