Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young Tour With Gretsch Guitars

Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young Tour With Gretsch Guitars

Legendary rockers, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young recently finished a successful Spring Tour of the US. With a few stops in Canada, the tour rolled through over 40(no pun intended) venues in a little over 2 months. The nearly 4 hour performances were true “concert events” capturing the bands’ greatest and latest tunes. Those in attendance were treated with acoustic and electric sets, and as always, powerful harmonies.

Both Stephen Stills and Neil Young were seen playing their Gretsch Guitars: New White Falcons , a classic Nashville, and even an old Stereo Falcon. Young was also working the Bigsby during classic jams like “Southern Man” and “Cinnamon Girl”; in full Rock mode. “He was wailin’ on the guitar during the entire electric set…the band was really tight, and the vocals were dead on” said Joe Savage, a dedicated CSNY fan who attended the first Philly Show.

Fred Gretsch took time to visit back stage with the band after a few concerts. He’s seen here with Neil Young and his guitar tech, Larry Cragg. These pictures show Fred holding 2 of Neil’s vintage Gretsch guitars: a White Stereo Falcon and a Classic Nashville. Both of which look to be in fine shape when you consider the touring rigors he must have put them through while on the road! Also, rare photo of Fred Gretsch Jr. with Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Fred Gretsch Sr.!
