A Favorite From Gretch's PastYou'll feel like you've been transported to the early '50s when you pick up the Gretsch G5022CE Rancher Jumbo Cutaway acoustic-electric guitar. The Rancher Series from Gretsch was introduced in the early '50s, standing out from the standard models of the day with a distinctive triangular soundhole and a stylish pickguard. The G5022CE Rancher Jumbo Cutaway brings you the the richly resonant sound Rancher guitars are known for, thanks to the solid spruce top reinforced with scalloped X bracing. You'll find the Jumbo Cutaway body has a powerfully rich voice, allowing it to hold its own whether played acoustically or amplified. And with flame maple laminate back and sides, a mahogany neck, and a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard, the Rancher Jumbo Cutaway looks as good as it sounds. You'll even be ready for exceptional plugged-in performance thanks to the built-in Fishman Isys+ preamp system and Sonicore undersaddle pickup. So take a musical trip back in time, with the Gretsch G5022CE Rancher Jumbo Cutaway acoustic-electric guitar!

by Bern from SilverlakeThis instrument looked great on the site, and I needed an acoustic with the pickup (I usually hate piezos) for my studio. Not only does it sound great as an acoustic but the pickup sound was so good ... read more [+]that I use it direct to the board. Low action, slim neck, and a bright sound make this one a keeper (to join the 50 other vintage guitars, banjos, and basses I use). I am waiting for Gretsch to issue a hard case for the instrument, as it is too large for standard cases. For now, I'll keep it in the studio for daily good use. close [-]

You get a lot more than you paid for!
by Javier Contesse M. from Santiago, ChileI truly didn't expect much from a $500-600 guitar. I was on a budget and took a shot at this beauty.

I lead worship with this guitar at a church with your typical 5 piece band and this thin... read more [+]g cuts through gracefully. It sounds great either plugged or not. It's kind of shiny on the higher end and surprisingly not as bass-loaded as I would of expected a Jumbo sized guitar to be. But again, you can't go wrong for the money. The neck is very comfortable, electronics are ok.
The only thing I'd change on this guitar is the Gretsch Strap-lock system. I'm not a fan of screwing my strap on every single time I want to use it and I'm not fond of plug/strap-holder 2-in-1 thingamagigs.
Another downside is that it's kind of hard to find a case that will fit her nicely.
Nonetheless I give it 5 stars. I'm absolutely pleased! close [-]
