I have been playing for 50 years and have always loved the attention a 12 string guitar garnishes and when you take this Rancher White Falcon out of the case and stroll to your perch on which to play, you can hear your audience gasp in awe at the spectacle. They are mesmerized by the guitar and wait in eager anticipation to be entertain. You can almost hear their heart beat. And when the full body sound emanates from this instrument it only takes a minute to watch the audience become captivated by the brilliance. They melt into the music and you got to bear witness. What a rush. You've conquered your crowd. It's a fine instrument.

Go ahead, make YOUR day!

This guitar is wonderful. I was a little apprehensive to order this at first since I hadn't actually held and played one, but due to Sweetwater's 2 year warranty of customer satisfaction, I thought I would go for it. Well, I must say that this is one fantastic guitar. First, the beauty and finish are impeccable. The guitar is just gorgeous! Second, the playability is awesome. I own a Taylor 6 string 816ce and to me,this guitar is much easier to play. Barre chords are a cinch, and I definitely don't have the biggest hands in the world. I purchased the case that is recommended and I have read that the fitment is really tight, and I must admit it is. But, I've found that if the body is put in at an angle first, it will go right in (and the end pin won't have to be removed first, as I've read elsewhere). The sound of this guitar is so sweet, either plugged into an amp or just playing acoustically. The sustain from one strum just keeps ringing... then finally, fades away. If you are in the market for an affordable and great sounding and playing 12 string guitar, then I highly recommend this instrument. Also, don't forget where you are purchasing it from. The guys at Sweetwater are great to deal with, and the warranty and free shipping are icing on the cake. You can't go wrong!

Gretsch Rancher White Falcon 12

I play 12 string exclusively in our church Praise Team. I contacted Aaron Rom who is my "go to" guy for all the guitars I have purchased. I read the reviews on this guitar, and asked Aaron if there were any negatives. He said he hadn't heard any negatives on this one at all. When it arrived, I was blown away by not only the sound, but the playability of this beautiful 12! It's not very often a person can buy a guitar without playing it and be satisfied! Thank you Sweetwater....Again!!


I am a long-time guitarist and am blown away by the beauty, stability, and playability of this instrument. Now I can retire my 50 year-old Martin 12-string, which I would never tune to standard pitch, and play this great instrument all tuned up. The electronics record excellently, and a mic/pickup blend sounds super. For the money, this instrument is impossible to beat. It does have that 'great Gretsch sound'.
Music background: 55 years of playing, engineering, and producing.

What do you have to lose?

As a long time customer of Sweetwater I have no fear ever purchasing anything from them. I know if Im not 100% happy they will make it right...they will even KEEP making it right for up to 2 yrs AFTER the purchase. Thats INSANE! Why buy anything anywhere else?With this in mind I had no reservations about trying this guitar out and boy am I glad I did. I played a 12 string Martin and a 12 string Taylor ( both in the $2000+ range) to compare. The tone of this guitar completely blew both of them away... its like butter yet you can get a gangsta amount of edge and crunch out of it...and its not just the sound. The way it feels in your hands is so much more substantial. It is heavier, but not uncomfortablely so. This guitar looks amazing in person. The pictures do no justice at all. I love every single thing about this guitar.. From the size to the unique gold trim to the...this guitar just feels and sounds so well made.If you're the fence about this one BUY IT. You will be so glad you did..and...if you arent...Sweetwater will make it right.Btw.. Sweetwater did a 55 point check on this guitar before selling it to me. They checked everything to make sure It was playable right out of the box. They also sent me nice professional picture of my guitar I can share with others. Talk about details!!Couldn't Be Happier...WIN WIN WIN!
