6012-CA Sweet Sixteen

A smaller, 16-inch-bodied take on the Rancher formula from the pre-Fender years, the Sweet Sixteen was offered in 2002 and 2003 in several colors. The AN was the finished in Anniversary-style two-tone Smoke Green. All Sweet Sixteen models featured a solid spruce top, maple back and sides, the traditional Rancher triangular soundhole, multiple layers of binding and X-bracing. Color choices mirrored the Hot Rod models of the time. Aside from the AN, other choices were Natural, Purple, Regal Blue, Tangerine, Black, Gretsch Orange, Tobacco Sunburst and Candy Apple Red.
