Anyone know what model she's playing?
I'm not sure, but since it is B&W TV/film, she may be playing a color other than white. White tended to flash/wash out on TV cameras of the time, which is why we have TV yellow--which was used because it looked white on TV.
She may be playing a bamboo color double anniversary? Or some such?
Looks like an anni to me
It's a '59 (FilterTrons with sculpted bezels) 6118 Double Anniversary in two-tone green. It's definitely two-tone, and I don't believe the ivory/copper ones were around until the '60s.
So, how do I edit the title of this thread?
Anni for my eyes.
You should be able to see a "Thread Tools" button on the right side of your original post. That will let you edit the thread title.
I'm thinking that also . Look at the video and still photo . As she turns it appears to be two tone color
She was one of the greatest players and singers of all time. I once wrote an article about her life in a local magazine. I love her style. she is truly the godmother of rock and roll music!
Yes she is and Maybelle Carter too. We all now rock'n'roll has two godmother, a black one and a white one.
Well you should not.
It was a nice surprise to me to discover that her white Gretsch is a two tone green one and I wish it could happen to others
That was a great clip! Thank is for sharing!
I did edit it, twice, but I think my second edit addresses your concern. Thanks.
I loved the one where they tried to make the decomissoned train station/platform look like an old southern train station.. She sure ripped it up though! I think she used an SG Custom on that one..with a tiny Gibson amp (prolly a GA-5) cranked!
I think I read somewhere that she had been married like 4 times.. I bet she was wild..!
One of my favorite guitarist is Rosetta!!!
I love this lady's style- the way she says more with a handful of notes than some do when they play 200 notes in ten seconds.
Happened to me! Any mention of a white Gretsch catches my attention (go figure)... and I discovered two nice surprises as a result. One is the actual color of the guitar, but the better one was being introduced to some great music I was unfamiliar with! Thanks!
Heh, I posted that exact same video a month or so in the Gretsch on TV thread. She kills it-- Sister Rosetta is one of my favorite guitar players ever. It's a shame that most of her recorded output isn't nearly so wild-- I keep hoping someone will turn up some good audio recordings of her 1950s-60s period.
