New for 2021
In January, 2011, Gretsch went against the grain and conventional design by introducing Renown 57. The unique look thanks to its classic car colors and the Chevron logo immediately became a hit throughout the world.
In response to the many requests, for only one year Gretsch is introducing a new breed in the coveted series: Renown 57 – Silver Oyster Pearl. The basis of the kit’s formula mimic’s today’s RN2 by adapting the 7-ply maple shell, 30 degree bearing edges, 302 hoops, silver sealer interiors, and Low Profile GTS system.
