Don was asked about the Gretsch he used on the "Hell Freezes Over" DVD. He said "It was a 1959 orange Gretsch “Chet Atkins” that I had refinished black. I loved the sound but hated the color." (Quote from Felderfans Guitar Q & A with Don). In another interview he stated "I used an EBow and my old black Gretsch Tennessean through an old Vox AC30 that I just love. That Gretsch used to be orange, but I had it repainted black in the middle or late ’70s." (Quote from Premier Guitar Interview: Don Felder - Airborne Again).more
