Rita is the name of Jack's custom Gretsch Rancher cutaway acoustic. It was made for and was extensively used on the Icky Thump tour, and subsequently can be seen in Under Great White Northern Lights.

The guitar was named after Rita Hayworth, who is pictured on the back of the body. Hayworth was a famous red-headed 1940s film actress, and has been referenced in more than one Jack White song, specifically "Take, Take, Take" and "White Moon".
