Beautifully appointed

Gretsch's G9200 Roundneck Boxcar standard resonator guitar is seriously decked out with tasteful vintage appointments that would look right at home in the company's catalogs of yesteryear. With the G9200, you get a lovely mahogany top graced with a vintage-y semi-gloss natural finish that not only looks great - it enhances the instrument's tone. Another tasty vintage styling touch is the intricate design of the spider resonator itself. They just don't build 'em like this anymore. Oh, wait a minute - Gretsch does!

Gretsch's legacy in American music

The Gretsch G9200 Roundneck Boxcar standard resonator guitar transports you back to Gretsch's roots in 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.

Love this guitar

Extraordinary loud sound. A lot of fun to play. When I first got it I told my wife to sell my other 12 guitars because this is the only one I need! Well, not quite but I spend a lot of time with it. It's perfect for slide guitar. "Bad to the Bone" was my first alt tuning song. A lot of fun. And the quality is great and great d'Addario strings on it from the factory. Just what I wanted. You can't go wrong.

Gretsch Resonator

Absolutely fun to play! Terrific appearance, good tone, and the smaller size makes it convenient and fun. I restrung is with 10s and they work just fine!

Amazing Instrument

First of all, for $359 I didn't expect much. I picked this thing up and it felt comfortable in my hands. The action was great. The tone was what I would expect an over $1000 instrument to be. I always wanted a resonator but never saw one cheap enough to meet my budget. This is one great guitar by any standard. It's loud yet can have a delicate sound when played with a metal slide. I haven't put it down much since I bought it 2 weeks ago. A fingerpicker delight! And for the ridiculously low price of $359. I love it! My Martin OM (another fingerpicker's dream) is getting jealous sitting in it's case. Buy it! Buy 2 of 'em!

Loud and Proud

I own another brand of resonator guitar and it has dual pickups to amplify it's sound, but I was very impressed by the sound and volume of this Gretsch Boxcar. The action was set up beautifully and the fit and finish is perfect. There is nothing bad I can say about my newest go-to guitar!

My gretsch resonator

Always wanted a guitar like this resonator. Been a practising bluesman all my life and now I finally found the sound. Its amazing how the steel accoustic dobroish sound moans through this instrument. Playing through a fender p a with a stick on pick up it is blowin' everyone away. I highly recommend to gospel, blues, or country writers and artists.
