We think this Gretsch Gin Rickey is one of the best budget acoustic guitar values in the market today. Parlor-sized, but with a strong punchy voice that harks back to the days of finger-style country blues players. And when you need to be amplified, you'll find this the Deltoluxe soundhole pickup works very well, producing eminently gig-worthy tones.
A great starter guitar but also a perfect guitar for a gigging musician who needs to lay down some classic country blues tones without breaking the bank. Freshly set up in-house by our talented Guitar Tech, this little jewel is dialed in and ready to go.
Fun, flip and finely crafted, it features an X-braced basswood body with a powerfully resonant voice, a “C”-profile nato neck that joins the body at the 12th fret, a smooth walnut fingerboard with 18 vintage-style frets and pearloid dot inlays, a top-load walnut bridge with compensated synthetic bone saddle for even intonation all along the neck, and more. And coolest of the cool, the Gretsch Deltoluxe acoustic magnetic soundhole pickup reproduces a crisp yet throaty voice.
What else? You’ve got aged white body binding and an aged white “G”-graphic pickguard, gold-and-white soundhole rosette with gold double-line top striping, nickel hardware, vintage-style end-pin strap buttons and open-gear die-cast tuners, and a hot Smokestack Black finish.
