Gretsch G9460 Dixie 6 Guitar-banjo at a Glance:
Traditional banjo styling and tone
Gretsch started building banjos over 120 years ago. The first Gretsch guitar-banjos rolled off the production lines in the early 1900s. Needless to say, they know a thing or two about making them. The Gretsch G9460 Dixie 6 guitar-banjo combines that extensive knowledge with modern production techniques to build a great guitar-banjo. You'll love the open-back tones, vintage looks, and the great feel of the Gretsch Dixie 6 guitar-banjo.
Open-back design for mellow tone
Open-back banjos not only look different from their resonator-backed brothers, but they have a different sound and feel. The open-back Gretsch G9460 Dixie 6 guitar-banjo has a mellow tone, great for fingerstyle and strumming music styles. Resonator-backed banjos have a brighter, more plucky sound. The G9460 Dixie 6's mellow sound is perfect for playing at home, at the gig, or around the campfire.
This traditional acoustic instrument celebrates Gretsch's roots in American music
Part of their Roots collection, the Gretsch G9460 Dixie 6 guitar-banjo gives you a chance to own one of Gretsch's earliest instruments. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that they got their start in 1883 as a banjo company? It wasn't long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top guitars, contributing to the very roots of American music. So when you pick up a Gretsch G9460 Dixie 6, you're holding more than a great guitar-banjo, you're holding a piece of American music history.
