Guitar Player magazine Editor-In-Chief Michael Molenda reviewed a Gretsch G5022CE Rancher in the magazine’s July issue, honoring it with the Guitar Player Editors’ Pick award.
“The new G5022CE Rancher retains most of the awesome vibe, beauty, and tonal wonders of the much more expensive 2002 version,” said Molenda. “While adding some rock-and-roll stage worthiness with its access to the higher frets and a truly excellent Fishman Isys + preamp.”
He also said that the Rancher’s character is retained when plugged in.
“The G5022CE’s electronics are fabulous. The onboard tuner is extremely visible, and the guitar’s character is retained when amplified.”
Molenda’s final verdict said that the Rancher makes for a “versatile and stunning guitar that will inspire you to genius no matter what type of music you play.”
