The richly resonant Rancher first appeared in the early 1950s with a circular soundhole and sweepingly elegant pickguard. Gretsch has reintroduced the Rancher with all its classic features intact in a great new selection of body sizes, styles and features that combine the best of the guitar’s acclaimed past with the best in modern sound, strength, style and playability.
The biggest and fullest-sounding Rancher is this G5027CE Rancher Jumbo Cutaway acoustic-electric guitar, which produces great volume and broadly expansive tone complemented by its elegant Venetian cutaway for easy access to the fingerboard’s upper reaches. The laminated flame maple back and sides are capped with a solid spruce top, and the G5027CE Rancher's scalloped X bracing gives it improved sonic resonance. The mahogany set neck features a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets, pearloid Neo-Classic thumbnail inlays and synthetic bone nut, while Fishman Presys onboard electronics allow this instrument’s voice to be heard even more loudly and clearly.
