PRS is Gibson meets Fender
Gretsch is Fender meets.............
Fender meets D’Angelico
I think if you go back into Gretsch's history, there's a lot more in common with Gibson than Fender. They were always coming up with new models and features in response to Gibson's ideas. That's especially true if you go back to the glory days of archtops.
They've had 60+ years to come up with a decent reply to the Strat. Still haven't done it - and no, you can't count the TK-300! I said "decent" - LoL!
