'54 Rancher model 6022
Probably the most popular of the post-war Gretsch acoustics, this debut batch Rancher model 6022 displays the same western aesthetic found in several electric models in the Gretsch line. The infamous G-brand and flamboyant orange finish are often accompanied by highly figured maple on the back and sides. (Photo courtesy of Jim Hilmar)
