Dates of manufacture:
Introduced in the thirties, Gretsch Synchromatic archtop guitars quickly became well respected for their superb tone, matchless playing ease and "Seven Points to Supremacy". Here is what guitar legend Harry Volpe said in 1939 about his original Synchromatic...
"My fingers seem to travel twice as fast on my new Synchromatic. The most amazing combination of magnificent tone and playing ease. And with all its power and punch, it still keeps the characteristic guitar tone."
These new (re-issued) Synchromatic models combine the design features of these 1930s archtops with the early Gretsch electric guitars of 1950. Bound Cat's Eye sound holes large body size and "synchronized" bridge from the thirties and the single coil DynaSonic pickups, single cutaway and G stop tailpiece from the fifties.
