Welcome to the forum, happy guitar hunting.
Don't know about a 12 string. Can play a 6 string some. Maybe a 9 string. Do they make a 9 string guitar ? Anyway welcome to GT.
Blue-eyed, honestly, all the guitars you mentioned are excellent choices. And yes, the hunt is always the fun part, you are being wise to take your time and consider your options.
I don't know if I agree with lack of talent, the first step of talent is pursuing your options, and you are certainly asking all the right questions.
I know that George played a 12-string Ric, and we prefer our 5422-G over our Rickenbacker 360-12 as a personal preference.
@Blue Eyed Floozy , I have 3 12 strings . Although I do not own a Gretsch Falcon Rancher , I did play one once ....WOW ! WHAT A SOUND ....
These are mine
Melissa Etheridge Signature
Gretsch FSR G5422-12
This I do not have but D'Angelico is something to look at . I believe this was the D'Angelico Exel Fulton at there NY City showroom . Almost bought it but the Martin won
You can always add a sound hole pickup to an acoustic. It's a trade off, but, what in life isn't?
Another trade off here:
I recently bought one to scratch my 12 string itch. It’s pretty darned cool!
Not bad at all.
Yep. Now I have five electric 12 strings!
Is there anyone here who has both the Gretsch Rancher Falcon 12 and the electric 12? I would be interested in hearing which gets more use.
That's an interesting comparison
Honestly, how often do you reach for the G5422-12 with the other two available?
To be honest thats a hard question to answer . Some days I'm in an electric mood and somedays I'm in an acoustic mood . I'm just a " play at home player ".
Not to mention working 2 jobs and also that winter has kicked it , I'm unable to play outside on the deck . . But the G5422-12 does get its use
MSRP is what keeps me at the 5220 & 5230T products.
Welcome to the forum, Blue Eyed Floozy. Like someone else said, I am still learning to play 6 strings, but the 12 string sounds interesting. There are lots of smart cats around here, though, so stick around.
I'm about to pull the trigger on a Falcon Rancher 12 string. I'm hesitating only because I was told 12 string players spend half their time tuning and the other half playing out of tune.
Have a look at the ''Jet'' line, in both single and double cut.
Small body, slim neck, nice and easy to handle...
Make sure you get a proper fitting Gretsch case as well.
Welcome to the madness.
