Looking for a banjo that takes you back to the days of old-time music? The Gretsch G9450 Dixie 5-string open-back banjo fits the bill.

The mahogany rim and neck give you a great woody tone from the Remo Fiberskyn head. Geared tuners provide stable and accurate tuning, even with alternate tunings. Whether you are looking for a great first banjo or want that open-back tone, the Gretsch G9450 Dixie is the perfect banjo for you.

Traditional banjo styling and tone

Gretsch started building banjos over 120 years ago. Needless to say, they know a thing or two about making them. The Gretsch G9450 Dixie open-back banjo combines that extensive knowledge with modern production techniques to build a great banjo. You'll love the open-back tones, vintage looks, and the great feel of a classic 5-string open-back banjo.

Open-back banjo 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 Gretsch G9450 Dixie open-back banjo has a mellow tone, great for old-time and clawhammer music styles. Resonator banjos can be quite heavy and bulky. If you're looking for a lighter model, the G9450 Dixie is a perfect choice.

This traditional acoustic instrument celebrates Gretsch's roots in American music

Part of their Roots collection, the Gretsch G9450 Dixie open-back 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 G9450 Dixie, you're holding more than a great banjo, you're holding a piece of American music history.

Gretsch G9450 Dixie 5-string Open-back Banjo Features:
  • Great-playing and affordable open-back banjo
  • Mahogany rim and neck provide classic banjo tones
  • Perfect for old-time music and clawhammer playing styles
  • Lighter weight makes the G9450 perfect for traveling
