“That great Gretsch sound“ remained a beloved marketing slogan by Gretsch for several decades now. That “sound” previously encompassed everything from the rip-roaring twang of a full-size hollowbody electric guitar with Filter’Tron humbuckers to the sizzling spank of a chambered Duo Jet with DeArmond/DynaSonic single-coils. 

However, in recent times, Gretsch has expanded the range of tones its instruments offer guitarists significantly enough that maybe the slogan should be changed to “Those great Gretsch sounds”.
