    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5022C Rancher Falcon Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This Guitar was nice right out of the box. The looks are fantastic and the Fishman electronics work great, and are everything that you need them to be. It is a Gretsch, and they are Great Guitars. I suggest you grab one before they stop producing them. An acoustic electric, that makes a nice addition to any collection!!

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5022C Rancher Falcon Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is a killer guitar. I bought it as a companion to my White Falcon electric. We have been using a Fender Malibu for kive gigs, but it felt a bit small for me. I needed a decent "working man" acoustic that can be used live, in studio, or at home writing.
    Out of the box, the guitar was great. One minor concern I did have was the lack of padding the guitars have in the box, just a cardboard support and a thin foam wrapper... I had no damage to mine, so all turned out well .
    The guitar has EXCELLENT fit and finish... no blemishes or finish flaws. I went through and tightened all the screws and nuts (I do this on all guitars as they are always loose after shipping) and found one of the tuner screws to be stripped out. I made a quick repair with a toothpick and moved along... it didn't cause a negative effect, I just fixed it for piece of mind.

    The guitar sounds great unplugged and plugged in, with plenty of top end punch and no muddy or boomy sounds, despite being a jumbo body.
    Most painted guitars tend to sound a little "flat" or "dull", but this one really shines and sounds good.
    The electronics have a great tone ran into a p.a or acoustic amp.
    Tuning stability is great, BUT my one complaint is that the tuners feel a little mushy, like you have to lower the pitxh and tune up to it. I may open them up and add some lubrication.

    There are a few subtle quirks I like on this guitar. The string pins, bridge, and nut are a simulated bone material... WAY BETTER than the Plastics that some similar level guitars use.
    I also love they put the battery at the input jack and not inside the preamp control, however I wished the jack was in the strap endpin for easier access onstage.
    This is a great guitar, and if something happened to it I would buy another.
    PRO TIP: I bought the Fender Jumbo Acoustic case and it fits like a glove. I read bad reviews of the Gretsch case, and it cost over twice as much as the Fender case.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5022C Rancher Falcon Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      45yrs of playing, from dragging a 4 string trash pile rescue- 1st guitar, to a collection of 1st class guitars. I strive to use anything i could get my hands on to play or learn, so i bought what i could and repaired and replaced moving ever forward to achieve the results i now have in collection. In pass couple of years had given several guitars away to help others learn and not to have to struggle as i had, so i felt that i would replace the acoustic guitar i had given one of nephews (the other nephew chose a electric dean) . i have ordered several Gretsch guitars ( 6120 Brian setzer sig - pro jet 5435t) and now own a White Falcon acoustic/elec in black . Again i've been blown away at the quality of this guitar, but mainly the sound. The resination is beautiful, sweet, and clear. yes, there is more costly investments but clearly Gretsch holds its own in any market and with players. As a stage professional, i would use this guitar in any venue for use of acoustic requirement. The personal pleasure of playing it is truly its reward.

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5022C Rancher Falcon Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I just started picking guitar a year ago. I've been picking on a Fender Acoustic which I love but was wanting to purchase an acoustic electric guitar with tuner, that had a little bling as a Birthday gift to myself. I called Musicians Friend and was helped by Samantha Pearson, who was very pleasant to talk to and helped make my purchase very easy. I really love my new Gretsch and have received many compliments and of course many requests to touch and play it. She's a beauty for sure. Learning to play at 62. Dream Big!!!
