Gretsch G5031FT Rancher Dreadnought Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Unique acoustic-electric tone from the Fideli'Tron humbucking pickup

Normally found on hot-rod electric guitars, the Fideli'Tron humbucker on the Gretsch G5031FT Rancher Dreadnought Rancher gives you a wide tonal range and aggressive output. It can sound sweet and clean at lower volume levels, but it's ready to get nice and dirty when you turn your volume knob up and hit your amp harder. For an exceptionally rich sound when recording, try treating the pickup signal to an amplifier or amp modeling plug-in, and blend that signal in with the mic'd acoustic sound.Premium tonewoods and craftsmanship deliver sweet sound and sustain
