Parlor or Dreadnought?

Harry Davidson, 14.02.2017
My Gretsch 5022 "White Falcon Rancher" was dear to me, but somehow too unwieldy. That is why I sold them again. I would have liked to have a small parlor guitar in the "White Falcon" look built in the Gretsch Custom Shop - but how would I have financed this? But sometimes miracles happen! Gretsch presented at the NAMM 2017, exactly the guitar, which I imagined. And she calls "5021 White Penguin Rancher". The price did not shock me, since a pickup system is also installed and I as Gretsch customer know and appreciate the quality of the products. Now to the conclusion: optically, the guitar comes exactly as I had wished for, so here is the top score. Also the processing leaves nothing to be desired about, the string position is divine and the intonation outstanding. The Fishman Piezo balances each string balanced and offers all comfort with its 3-way EQ and the built-in tuner. The sound is the surprise. Although the guitar looks like a parlor guitar, it sounds more like a dreadnought model. Fingerpicking or blues are not their profession. Surprisingly, the guitar likes the chord play, even with a pick and sounds like a great one. Singer / songwriters will appreciate this. On the belt she hangs horizontally, with very, very minimal head weight. Surprising also their weight. Pretty heavily built the penguin. Acoustic, the guitar is not the loudest, the sound behavior (similar to the White Falcon Rancher) is rather muted and easily sterile. But still very nice. A little more life comes into the room when you unscrew the percussion board and attach a thin disc with the four screws. Thus, the spruce top is no longer hindered by the 3mm thick dashboard, which occupies almost a quarter of the resonance surface. As a "Parlor" guitar I do not really see the "White Penguin", it is too light for me, but it is a great accompaniment guitar for singer / songwriters, a dreadnought is too bulky For their singing!

A good guitar!

Jluc2a, 18.05.2017
Used solo, acoustic for the moment (not yet plugged), it will serve during evenings.

A good grip, fast.
Handle hyper playable, the right size, whether for a girl (16 years) or a man.
A little curling in chords accompanying, but I would settle it by a luthier boyfriend?

Aesthetically speaking, my girl fell in tears when she saw it! What else?

Small in size, but she does speak the powder when playing with!

I would come back to argue on the electro, when it will have made an evening plugged

Would recommend for a beginner, or a knowledgeable user (maybe it will prefer the Falcon?)
We should still try this little Gretsch, if only to listen to play?
