I just now uploaded the video
This thing is truly amazing.
Keep in mind. I’m not a very good video maker nor musician. But I hope i showcased the guitar good enough. Thank You
Sounds good and sounds like you are really enjoying it! Congratulations!
Great job, Mark. That's a great sounding jumbo.
Great video Mark. I enjoy the Gretsch acoustics too. They mix in a band very nicely. Congrats on the cool new guitar.
I had one of the jumbos some years ago and it sounded great, even plugged in. I found it fairly easy to dial out the 'quack' by lowering the treble a bit.
Congrats. Looks fun and sounds great!
Nice video - great job!
Curious about the Fishman - my 5022CE has a "phase" button that gives you that out-of-phase sound when punched in. Useless for acoustic play obviously, but kinda nice when plugged in for certain material.
Does the G5027CE have that, or did they change the specs on the Fishman they're using? I've had my 5022CE for eight+ years now. Stuff changes over time. Just curious...
I've said it before, I'll keep saying it. Rancher Jumbos are wonderful guitars!
I beg to differ Great video and a great review from a great musician . Thank you
Actually, the phase switch on Fishman units serves a more important function of feedback suppression. It's not the same as a pickup phase switch on a solidbody, which is more often used to gain a nasal tone.
This video explains it a little better with a demonstration:
No Phase, Just tuner, Volume Treble,middle and bass.
Thanks, I disagree, But I really went through a lot to end up with this and wanted to share!
Great playing and a great video review. These Ranchers are so underrated, and one of the best kept Gretsch secrets.
They are not only great hard pickers, but tremendous finger picker guitars as well.
I know you mentioned the GS mini, and we own one, but in our opinion, since the Gretsch Rancher Parlor was less money, had a great pickup system, has stellar looks and is a better value.
Thanks for that - nicely done!
Interesting, thanks for posting. I've never experienced the feedback problem he refers to with my Rancher, proper distance from the amp, sound hole cover and all that. I'll also concede that it's not the same degree of "phase-ness" (?) as you'd get with dual out-of-phase pups on a solid body, but hey, I only know what my ears tell me. It's there, subtle, but I hear it.
Fishman refers to it as a "brilliance control for additional tone shaping", so it would seem to me they had something more in mind than feedback suppression.
But who knows? Maybe they got rid of it because nobody could figure out what the heck it was! Ha!
Anyway, thanks... and MK, enjoy that guitar!
