Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5022CWFE-12 Rancher Falcon Jumbo 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I think this is a great buy for the price. It does not have the projection and robust acoustic sound of a pro-level guitar, but it's pretty good. I love it. The action is as good as any guitar I own, which is unique for a 12-string.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5022CWFE-12 Rancher Falcon Jumbo 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Forever, this guitar was out of stock and no reviews available on this guitar...when it finally became in stock, I had to pick this one up having looked & looked for 12 string guitars at this price point. This is a very nice guitar with good sustain and a rich sound. I REALLY wanted a 12 string that had a built in tuner, and this one has it, though it stays in tune just great. I tune mine down a half step just because but I dont think that's necessary for tuning purposes.

The white finish may seem simple, but it is gorgeous, and the gold sparkle binding catches everyone's eye...the ONLY gripe isnt even about the guitar...MF does NOT stock the actual Gretsch case (good luck finding it). The TKL jumbo case is EXTREMELY tight on this guitar. I'm keeping the case and it will fit in there, but it is not easy.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5022CWFE-12 Rancher Falcon Jumbo 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I have several 12 strings. The Gretsch is quickly becoming a my favorite. The action is superb. Has a "chunkier" feeling neck like by old B25-12 but action like my Rick 360. Not real loud when unplugged but loud enough. Plug it in and the Fishman takes care of the rest. Full bodied sound, very rich. And the flash of the guitar definitely gets noticed. It's great and I am very happy with my purchase.

          Looking great, very easy to play, even at 12th fret and so. Cutaway is a plus.
          The sound is rich, warm, but not very powerful. I compared it to the Martin d12x1ae (same price range), and the Martin was definitely louder, with much more projection.
