Gretsch's legacy in American music
The Gretsch G9200 Roundneck Boxcar standard resonator guitar transports you back to Gretsch's roots in American music. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that 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 resonator, you're holding more than a great resonator, you're holding a piece of American music history.

Old South Blues Machine
by Robert Schlotter from Indiana, USAThis Resonator guitar is a absolutely fun guitar to play. Very comfortable in your hands and body. It is hard to put down. The sound of this guitar is so bluesy, you feel like you are down in the D... read more [+]elta in the south somewhere. The guitar is well made and a solid investment. It also has a vintage look and vibe to it. So, if you are wanting to get started in the bottleneck blues style, this guitar is the perfect place to start. It is very affordable, and well worth the price. I would highly recommend this guitar for the aspiring blues musicians. close [-]

Authentic 1930's Gretsch Resonator
by Greg from New YorkAlthough I chose this guitar based on Sweetwater's pics of the actual item, this one has very conspicuous marker pen touch-ups to cover glue stains at the neck joint. Their pics don't show the neck jo... read more [+]int. The design itself is very period correct and beautiful. Even the tiny screws that hold the resonator cover on are slot head, not phillips, ( phillips head screws weren't widely used until after WWII ). The striped mahogany plywood used for the body is all well matched nice quality. The headstock, mother-of-pearl overlay, and nut work are flawless. The open geared tuners work smoothly and hold tune very well. The semi-gloss clear coat is smooth with minimal crumbs stuck to the insides of the f holes. The clear coat on guitars is usually hi gloss or satin, this finish is different, it feels like you're holding plastic until you get used to it. There's no binding on the edges, but since the finish is so smooth you really don't miss the binding. No sharp fret ends, and intonation is good ( correct pitch at each fret ) all the way up the neck. Because the action is fairly low, ( string height above the frets ) it's very comfortable to play like a guitar. Picked or strummed softly, you don't get much metallic resonator sound, but you do get surprising volume and long sustain. With heavier picking, you do get the resonator sound. close [-]
