Gretsch G-5022CE Savannah Sunset 2012 Electro Acoustic Guitar. Here for sale we have a Gretsch G-5022CE electro acoustic guitar in Savannah Sunset finish. Built in 2012 this cutaway Jumbo guitar features a solid Spruce top, laminate Flame Maple back and sides, a Mahogany neck, a Rosewood fingerboard, 21 vintage style frets, along with a Fishman Isys+ preamp system with controls for volume, bass, treble, phase and a built in tuner. The gloss finish neck plays very well, offering a slim but still nicely rounded profile and with the cutaway giving excellent access to the upper register.
The jumbo body feels responsive, with a great dynamic range.
