Art Wiggs

Art Wiggs has always admired the Gretsch brand of guitars.  He grew up in a musical family, as his parents played in church and on the radio together.  As a kid he played the guitar with a classmate and the duo even had a running gig at Disneyland.  He gave up playing to focus on his young family and to keep his day job.  He retired from Union Carbide in 1988 and started Wings Guitar Products.  He enjoyed buying and selling guitars.  Art expanded his business, with his son's help, to travel to guitar shows around the country.  He soon focused on Gretsch Guitars and has since worked for the famed guitar company to restore vintage instruments.
