Ronnie Lee (still living) was a well-known NY studio musician. He was my instructor for a few years. I talked to him about the signature model and he said Gretch contacted him because he was a fairly high profile musician in the industry. I hope this helps.

Ronnie Lee teaches jazz guitar in NYC. He was a wsession musician in the 50 and 60s. He still teaches on the west side of Manhattan. He can play like a madman.!!!!

I studied guitar with Ronnie Lee during the 1950's and 60's and I would really like to know how to contact him. We were good friends but somehow over the years have lost contact. Can anyone help?

Hello. I'm a good friend of Ronny's. You can reach him at his email.

You will also be able to find Ronny on the web very soon. There's a blog in the works, and also a Tumblr page showcasing Ronny's memorabilia from a lifetime of working in the music business.

Very best,

I have one too. I purchsed it at pawn shop in Miami in 1974.

I also purchased a 1962 R L Model in Miami in 1968 or 1969 in the Kendall area from a shop who was selling it for one of their shops teachers. It looked just like a Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Model and was Walnut w/gold hardware. It had a small square plaque on the headstock like the Atkins but read "Ronnie Lee on it. At that time I didn't have a clue who R.L. was and
Model"
thought it was someone who had their on plaque made and put onto the headstock. Had it a couple years and sold it to another guy and never saw it again. A little later I ran across a Ronnie Lee guitar instruction book and then realized the mistake i had made....oh well....
