The guitars conceived and produced by the Gretsch Company after WWII represent some of the more unique sounding and visually dynamic models available during the ''50s and into the mid-''60s.
'53 Electromatic model 6185-6
The Electromatic model 6185-6 was the first Gretsch electric archtop conceived after WWII. This 4-string tenor specimen is one of the last 6185-6 examples made before the modelÑ?s discontinuation in 1953. Although rare, a variety of Gretsch models have been documented to exist in the factory custom 4-string tenor orientation. (Photo courtesy of Steve Wilson)
