Where the action is!
Roy Orbison had a Gretsch-Gibson-ShoBud mongrel guitar. There are photos of Roy playing a straight Gretsch too.
They are one and the same. It started life as a White Falcon. As far as I know, the story of how or why he had it so extensively rebuilt is lost to the ages. Roy seemed to have a thing for the color black, but obviously he did a whole lot more than just refinish it in black.
