Gretsch G6022C Acoustic Rancher Cutaway Guitar. This guitar measures 17″ Wide and 3.5″ to 4.5″ Deep. It’s a six string Jumbo-sized guitar with 21 frets with maple back, sides and a spruce top. The guitar has multiple bindings on the body, headpiece and neck. It also has a patented French design sound hole.
The fingerboard is bound rosewood with Gretsch style western motif pearl. The controls are Fishman Prefix PRO Blend system. It is fitted with gold plated hardware and has a Western Maple Stain Finish. It sports the design “G” brand on body and has a red shell pickguard.
Similar to the model Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps played. Believe it or not Jeff Beck has a vintage one of these in his collection as he was heavily influenced by Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps, especially Cliff Gallup.
Gretsch has re-released this model, but unfortunately the newer ones lack the quality that this one has. They decided to make a less expensive guitar with the new ones that have a similar appearance.
Being a jumbo sized acoustic the sound is pretty big as well.
