The Rancher Falcon features a solid spruce top that delivers a broad dynamic range and yields crisp articulation. Its stunning, solid spruce top also generates a versatile tonality which is able to accommodate numerous genres and playing styles with equal ease. To accompany its sonically pleasing solid top, Rancher Falcon comes equipped with laminated maple back and sides, adding a bright sonic-characteristic to the overall sound. The laminated maple construction also has great projection with excellent note definition, ensuring the Rancher Falcon’s acoustic voice is loud and clear. Although the maple is laminated, it still offers a quality sound as well as other great properties including strength, durability and being far less susceptible to warping and cracking in changing climates.
Constructed from maple, the neck delivers a highly reflective tone with great sustain. With a U shaped profile the neck also offers a comfortable playing experience, especially for those long gigs and rehearsals. The maple neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that adds a sonic-warmth to the bright tonality of this stunning electro-acoustic. Its rosewood fingerboard also offers a smooth and energetic playing experience. Aesthetically the Rancher Falcon’s neck will standout mightily on stage due to its gold sparkle binding, mother of pearl thumbnail inlays, and V shaped headstock branded with Gretsch’s signature logo with gold sparkle inlaid details.
Equipped with a Fishman Isys+ preamp, the Gretsch G5022CWFE is perfectly suited to live and rehearsal environments, making it ideal for the gigging musicians. Its on-board preamp features a 3-band EQ for basic sound tweaking, including rotary controls for bass, treble, and volume. The Fishman Isys+ also features a phase button that helps to reduce undesirable feedback when plugged-in within live settings. The Fishman Isys+ also has a built-in tuner, providing players with a bright easy-readable LED screen, making tuning up or down precise and easy within the darkest of venues.
The Rancher Falcon is certain stand out within a live setting, offering a truly stunning appearance to match its tonal character. Trailing round the body and neck is glistening gold sparkle binding that stands out beautifully against the white gloss polyester finish and elegantly shaped pickguard. Immaculately cut and fitted, the pickguard offers a 1940s inspired look with a modern Gretsch twist. It has been finished in gold with Gretsch’s classic brand logo, accompanied by the traditional triangular Rancher soundhole, offering an appearance that was made for stage performance. Running the length of the fingerboard are a set of Neo-Classic thumbnail markers, inlaid in mother of pearl to match its classic white finish. In addition, the Rancher Falcon’s headstock has been graced with Gretsch’s vertical winged hieroglyphs, inlaid with a gold sparkle to match its other elegant ornate details. The Gretsch G5022CWFE offers an elegantly unique appearance with a stunning tone and fitted electronics, making it perfect for the stage and the gigging guitarist.
