Gretsch's legacy in American music

The Gretsch G9320 New Yorker Deluxe Mandolin transports you back to Gretsch's roots in American music.

So when you pick up a Gretsch mandolin, you're holding more than a great mandolin, you're holding a piece of American music history.

Superior Fretwork and Playability

I gave this mandolin a 5 based on how it compares to others in its price range. I've tried several mandolins in this price range and this one blows all of those away. So many of the cheaper A style mandolins have uneven frets which make it comfortable action a near impossibility. This New Yorker plays clearly on all frets and has very comfortable action. It has a better tone than it's price equivalents, just don't expect it to sound like an American made F style. I would highly recommend this to beginners and students, as well as guitarists or other musicians who want a mandolin to play but can shell out the big money for a high quality instrument. For the money you can't beat it.

MANDO BY ANY OTHER NAME UPDATE

I have owned this mando for a few weeks now....and I have to say that I am growing more fond of it day by day...the sound is round and robust. The neck is very comfortable...it holds tuning for days...this is a sweet little player. I would recommend it over and above any of the 100 or 200 series Kentucky models...forget the entry level Washburns...this is far superior...and do not even bother with any low-end Ibanez models...CHOOSE THE GRETSCH...they have come up with a winner at this price point and even at the $400-$500 margin...this little gem barks and twangs...

Good Purchase

Not a mandolin player or tech. Been playing guitars for some time and decided on a mandolin for a change up. This instrument seems solid, and sounds great to me. Setup was good - I'll probably raise the action on the bottom side a bit, but that's about it. Considering the price was right, very satisfied.

A MANDO BY ANY OTHER NAME

I have been playing Mandolin on and off for the last thirty years. I am primarily a guitar player but dabble in mandolin, harmonica and keys. I have owned some nice mandos: a 1964 Gibson A-40 was the high water mark. I also have owned some Eastmans and a Kentucky or two and a beautiful Ibanez made in Japan in the early 1980's (it was a cross between and A and F style model). The Gretsch Deluxe is patterned after the Gibson A-40 and A-50 in style and shape. Which suits me fine. I am no longer in awe of F-style mandos and I much prefer the A-style. I am not a bluegrass player. I play in a band and we do folk-blues and jugband. The Gretsch has a nice comfy neck, a decent tone and a built in pickup that is not TOO piezo-crummy. All in all this mandolin works for me and the price is right. Solid spruce top with lammed mahogany back and sides. The mahogany gives it a more mid-range dominance and is not too trebly. I like it and as long as it holds up it will do the job just fine.
