The Rancher acoustic guitar from Gretsch is a full-size dreadnought with distinctive looks and a big sound to match. The solid spruce top and mahogany body form the basis for a guitar which is affordable but still resonates sympathetically across the frequency spectrum so that you can enjoy the maximum dreadnought sound - warm bass and bright highs with a punchy midrange.
The most obvious visual difference that sets the Rancher apart from other Dreads is the triangular sound hole. Combined with the uniquely-shaped pickguard and elegant Gretsch headstock, this guitar grabs your attention with big sounds and bold looks.
Here's what Gretsch say about the Rancher Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar
A great Gretsch name is back with the return of Rancher acoustic guitars.

With 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, Gretsch now gives you the best of all Ranchers.
