Return of a legendary mandolin

The Gretsch New Yorker mandolin was a shining jewel in the company's 1950's lineup. Now this beloved model is back, and better than ever - giving you the full-bodied mando tone, smooth playability, and eye-catching looks that you'd expect from Gretsch. The Gretsch G9300 New Yorker Standard mandolin is dripping with tasty vintage styling.

Beautifully appointed

Gretsch's G9300 New Yorker Standard mandolin is seriously decked out with tasteful vintage appointments that would look right at home in the company's catalogs from the '50s. With the G9300, you get a lovely solid spruce top graced with a vintage 2-tone sunburst finish, that not only looks great - it enhances the instrument's tone. Another tasty vintage styling touch is the clam-shell tailpiece. They just don't build 'em like this anymore. Oh, wait a minute - Gretsch does!

Gretsch's legacy in American music

The Gretsch G9300 New Yorker Standard Mandolin 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 mandolin, you're holding more than a great mandolin, you're holding a piece of American music history.

I love mine!

I first ordered the epiphone that was the same price as this one. I had to send it back because of a defect on the fretboard that made it unplayable. I exchanged it for this gretsch. I absolutely love it. It was set up and playable out of the box. I just needed to adjust the bridge a bit. I am a professional musician of 30 years. I am a performer and recording engineer. I wanted a cheap but playable mando for my collection. This one fits the bill perfectly! Matt Alexander is a cool dude by the way! Thanks for all your help with all my purchases. Sweetwater rocks!

Nice Mandolin and a great value!

I was pleasantly surprised. As a guitar player all my life and a bass player for about 3 years, I thought why not add the mandolin? This one is certainly a "starter", but it is a very good one. It doesn't come with much instruction, but I went online and found the proper placement for the bridge. No bad frets and very easy to adjust. Sound is very good for the price, and tuners are excellent. I shopped Fender, Washburn, Kentucky, and Gibson (just kidding) before deciding on this one. I highly recommend it.
