Gretsch has just unveiled a beautiful new line of Rancher acoustics, including Rancher Folk, Orchestra, Jr., Dreadnought and Jumbo Cutaway Electric. Of course, the Rancher should be familiar to most of you Gretsch fans out there, as the models first rose to prominence in the early 1950s.
As an example of Brooklyn Cowboy Kitsch and flat-out guitar coolness this first-year Gretsch Model 6130 Roundup is sure hard to beat! Perhaps it was overcompensation for being up north in the big city, or maybe just an example of '50s exuberance, but when Gretsch decided to create a solidbody guitar for the country/western market, they really went all in with this one.
Today, Gretsch announced the release of the G6128T-GH George Harrison Signature Duo Jet, which is modeled on Harrison's original 1957 Duo Jet. Harrison referred to it as his “first real decent guitar.”
