'66 Anniversary model 6118
In 1960, the popular Anniversary models inherited the HiloTron pickup technology, replacing the previous FilterTron units, which remained in higher-end Gretsch electrics. This mid-'60s specimen is in a rare and attractive custom white finish. (Photo courtesy of Steve Wilson)
