Plays just like a guitar

The Gretsch G9220 Roundneck Bobtail Deluxe resonator guitar is amazingly playable. If anyone knows guitarists, Gretsch does. Leave it to them to build an acoustic-electric resonator that plays just as easily as a standard acoustic guitar - but sounds like something else, entirely! As a guitarist, you're constantly looking for unique tones to spice up your music, right? Adding a resonator to a track is now as easy as arming your DAW and picking up your Gretsch G9220! And with the G9220's onboard Fishman pickup, you're gig-ready, right from the get-go.

Beautifully appointed

Gretsch's G9220 Roundneck Bobtail Deluxe 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 G9220, 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 G9220 Roundneck Bobtail Deluxe 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.

Great Resonator Sound With Versatility

Right out of the box and ready to play! When used acoustically, it provides authentic delta sound with or without slide! Fishman electronics let you get unbelievable sound through what ever processor you use. Another great instrument from Sweetwater!


Simply perfect. If you play guitar but want that distinct "Dobro" sound and fun... well you found it. Plays GREAT. Sounds Amazing. I couldn't be happier

Fabulous Experience

This guitar sounds incredible! Play-ability is excellent for a guitar that is set up for slide or fingering. Fit and finish is outstanding too. I was always afraid to mail order a guitar. I always had to feel one before purchase. But I decide to take a chance. Sweetwater was awesome! Before they ship, guitar techs do a 55-point check on your guitar. They email pics of your guitar before shipping it to you. Packaging was outstanding. Mine arrived polished, shined, and in even in tune! I will not hesitate to order another guitar from Sweetwater. Very happy with the Gretsch G9220 and Sweetwater.

great guitar at any price

Great tone, playability and looks. Quality build and finish. This is not a "budget guitar, but at $500 and 24 months to pay, it fits any budget. If it were American made it would be perfect. But, hey, its an American guitar company and I purchased from an American dealer. This guitar has inspired me to write 5 songs in the first week. Sounds great plugged in and I can't wait to use it on a gig
Music background: pro player for 35 years

Want clear, crisp tone with sustain?

This is the resonator you've been looking for. I still can't believe the sustain this guitar has, the cone sings forever! It is a very well crafted guitar and worth your money.
