Big Sound at a Fair Price

WOW! A co worker recommended this guitar for performance use and it is great! The Isys pre amp system sounds transparent when dialed properly. The Phase switch is a great addition for playing varying volumes. The guitar was set up great EXCEPT I needed to tweak the truss out of the box and the strings were dead(comes with D'Adarrio 12s I case you were curious.) once I put fresh strings on it was great. I would buy another if mine was stolen or buster!

Great looks Great tone!

Gretsch has always made quality instruments, I've always loved my Duo Jet. When I saw this Rancher I was blown away by the color and how evenly the top Spruce made that great contrast with the Maple sides. When I got it the action was almost like I like it but after a few adjustments it played like a dream.Acoustically, it sounds full and well balanced. Plugged in it also sounds great but after messing with the pre-amp a while. Worth the money. Thanks Sweetwater and Thanks Andy for all your help.

Gretsch G5022CE Rancher Jumbo cutaway

Of course this guitar is not on a par with expensive Martin and Gibson acoustics, but, you can rest assured, this guitar more than surpassed my expectations, and then some. It has a sound like guitars twice its price as well as having a flawless finish. It sounds beautiful no matter what genre you're playing. Thank you, Sweetwater, for a wonderful guitar!


Did Tim play this thing in the rain?I am a guitar player of 40 years. I have had many guitars and still do. Acoustic guitars are either going to gain quality in sound, or lose it. They rarely stay the same. A guitar player will look at a new guitar and decide if it has the material and construction that it needs to grow better as it ages. Then play it to see how it feels and sounds right now. If acoustic jumbos is a style and sound that you like, I would like to make a wager with someone to find a better guitar than the Gretsch 5022CE for the price. Pick a category. It soars above all, except for the strap buttons. No I'm not affiliated with Gretsch. I just know a good guitar when I see one. I also have the skill and experience that qualifies me to judge.
