Best Guitar for the Money!I would be happy witrh this guitar if it cost twice as much. The fit and finish are excellent. The sound of the maple body and solid spruce top is balanced. The pickup system is spot on. Unbelievable value in a jumbo body guitar.

great jumboThis 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 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.

You get a lot more than you paid for!I 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 thing 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!

The Red Rancher (Gretsch G5022CE) Jumbo CutawayAwesome sound -- very loud and deep! Souds great plugged in or unplugged Also, well built with a highly playable neck. This is the most fun I've had with an "acoustic" guitar in a long time. I just need to run it through the paces with the electronics. I've been very satisfied with other Gretsch guitars I've bought and will likely buy a couple more. Great style, great sound, what else can you ask for! Outstanding color, too!
