This bite-sized guitar is great for playing on the couch and on stage. Fitted with a Deltoluxe soundhole pickup, the G. Rickey is packed with vintage tone.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Basswood body Big, warm midrange tones
Nato neck Smooth feel and a modern tone
Parlor-sized guitar Surprising projection from a smaller-bodied guitar
Walnut fretboard Bright maple-like tone with added "growl"

Whether bluesy porch pickin' or speakeasy swingin', the Gretsch G9520E Gin Rickey Acoustic/Electric with Deltoluxe Soundhole Pickup is a real gone finger-zinger classic. Inspired by the Gretsch Rex parlor guitars of old, the G. Rickey whisks you back to the halcyon days when the earliest Gretsch guitars fueled many a barrelhouse barn burner.

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.

I got this a few weeks ago since my acoustic/electric guitar was smoke damaged in a fire. I knew it was a smaller scale guitar but was even more surprised when it arrived. It’s small, light, and to be honest just “feels” and sounds kinda cheap. The craftsmanship is fine, but it still feels and sounds like something that should be like $89. Maybe $129......not $249.I’m keeping it because it’s small and quick to pick up when inspiration strikes or I want to learn a song quick. But I sometimes regret not just spending a few hundred more on a nicer mid-priced acoustic electric guitar.
