1967 Gretsch Rancher 6022 with 60’s vintage De-Armond pickup, original tag

1967 Gretsch Rancher 6022 with 60’s vintage De-Armond RHC-B 210 pickup, original tag, Hard case This is a superb example of a well-cared for 60’s USA made vintage Gretsch Rancher 6022. It is without splits, cracks or any major chips. It has a very light “road worn” look with some honest play-wear to the top left of the sound hole. The beautiful original orange colour has light wear on the back of the smooth Maple neck. It is fitted with a 1960’s De Armond RHC-B / 210 magnetic acoustic pickup with five exposed poles and one sunken pole on the B. This Gretsch sounds amazing, both in an acoustic mode or the electo-mode. It is everything you imagine it to be. Perfect for Blues and Country. The action is low, with more room for adjustment. The frets and Rosewood fingerboard are in very good order.  The nut is good. The headstock is in great shape with some honest scratches from string winding. The binding and purfling are sound. It retains many original parts to include the tuners, fancy strap pins and the “Grand Piano” bridge. It even retains the original Quality Control O.K. card. This card implies that this Gretsch Rancher 6022 is from 1964. The serial number, and its location on the back of the headstock, indicates this guitar is from 1967. As you would imagine, a guitar from 1967 is rarely without a fault. This one isn’t so bad. There is evidence that the bridge has lifted and been re-glued. The table has lifted ever so slightly with the bridge. However, on a positive note, the bridge doesn’t move when tuning and the guitar remains in tune. So, I believe all is good. These guitars are rarely available. This is a great opportunity to own one at a sensible price, rather than the £5,000 you may have to pay for one elsewhere. It is supplied with a Hiscox Jumbo hard case. Treat yourself to a beautiful sounding guitar
