Mandolins previously produced in New York, NY during the late 1940s and early 1950. Guitars are still currently produced and distributed by the Fender Musical Instrument Corporation (FMIC).
In the 1940s, Gretsch introduced their one and only venture into the mandolin industry with the New Yorker model. They produced this for a few short years, but by the early 1950s, it had disappeared from the catalog. Gretsch hasn't made a mandolin ever since, however they continue to build several acoustic and electric guitars as well as basses. In May, 2012, Gretsch released the Roots Collection that includes new mandolins, banjos, resonators, and ukuleles. For a full company history on Gretsch, see the Blue Book of Acoustic Guitars or Blue Book of Electric Guitars.
