Gherson is the brand with which Alfredo Menghini produced a series of electric guitars and basses from 1968 to 1983-1985 ca. Initially with the name Wonder and Daytime, only later with that of Gherson. Headquartered in Recanati, the Gherson brand was one of the few in Italy to briefly counter the now extensive market for Asian musical instruments.
