Black and White Gretsch Guitars

The ad said “pick up a penguin” so I did, based on a great review in a guitar magazine. A Gretsch Penguin Rancher Parlour electro-acoustic guitar.

It has the triangular Rancher sound hole, a finish like the White Falcon, and a Fishman Isys pickup (probably why it sounds so good going through my Fishman acoustic amplifier)..

And a lovely thing it is. I feel like it’s come from Las Vegas with all the gold glitter

This goes alongside my black Gretsch Electromatic G5122 model. I bought this a few years ago in a kind of homage to my early heroes Duane Eddy and Eddie Cochran, not forgetting George Harrison. My friend bought the same model in orange.

A fine pair of very playable guitars I think you’d agree.
