Also known as Model 6050, the New Yorker was a 16-inch non-cutaway acoustic archtop. While the headstock shape and badging changed over the production run, the scale length and body did not. It was available only in a sunburst finish with a tortoiseshell celluloid pickguard. These guitars are not highly sought after compared to other Gretsch acoustic archtops.
