Highlights of this instrument are it's tone, the tuning machines and design. The tuning machines are smooth and easy all the way through the GDAB tuning which makes minor tweaks a synch. The spruce top on this one really rings out a full and clear tone. Each fret releases a nice, sustaining resonant note, and after carefully adjusting the bridge, the intonation is flawless. The Piezo pickup sounds remarkably similar to the natural sound of the instrument. There are no volume and tone knobs but that is not missed. The output volume is plenty loud and the absence of a visible pickup with knobs really plays well with the natural look. There does seem to be quite a bit of percussive pick sound when plugged in but that can be managed with some e.q. or pick selection. This mandolin soars above its contemporaries in the price range and I'm personally glad I grabbed one as soon as they came out.

The only real downside to this instrument is that the assembly seems like it might be a little hit and miss. Mine had an input jack that would not tighten sufficiently and the grommets(?) around the base of the tuning pegs within the topside of the headstock were not quite flush. These were an easy at-home fix for me so I wouldn't have to bother waiting on warranty work or an exchange.

Even with these minor issues, this still remains a solid deal with maximum tone, playability for the price.

Bought one as my first mandolin 2 months ago. Loved it until the electric pickup developed severe reverb-like distortion when playing middle 2 strings last week. (I didn't drop or bang it or anything.) Exchanged it where I bought it, but didn't try it out in the store and the replacement already had a faulty electric pickup with the same bad distortion when playing 2 strings at once (2 middle strings worst). I'm very disappointed in this aspect despite loving it otherwise and being very happy with my acoustic-electric Gretsch resonator guitar. Don't know whether to give up on electric pickup and just mike it (doesn't sound nearly as good that way) or take it back and get a more expensive mandolin with hopefully more reliable electric pickup.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9320 New Yorker Deluxe Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:

    I've been playing sting instruments the better part of my life, but this was the first mandolin I've ever owned. I found this to be a good middle ground between the all-ply and all-solid construction mandos, based on price. Grestch has made great instrument, period. The fit and finish is very good, no fretwork or other finishing work was needed. The tone is very good thanks to the solid top. While I'm sure more expensive all-solid wood mandos sound better, this fit the budget and will get me started without sounding cheap and thin. This definitely has the attack and ring of an F hole mando, so it's more suited for bluegrass or other American style folk music. However, I restrung it with a lighter gauge set of Elixors (which was super easy, despite other reviews) which has given it a softer tone more suitable for my Irish folk band.

    All in all, I am very pleased. It tuned well, intonated very easily, and needed very little setup work. A musician of average experience on plucked string instruments should have no issues with doing the few minimal setup tasks to get this mando ready to play.

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9320 New Yorker Deluxe Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:

          I started learning Mandolin a few years ago on an inexpensive Rogue. I started playing with a group and was looking for an Acoustic-Electric mandolin to make recording and amplification easier. I fell in love with this instrument. The tone is great, the piezo in the bridge delivers a great signal, and the feel of the instrument as a whole is very professional.

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9320 New Yorker Deluxe Acoustic-Electric Mandolin:

            I just got this mandolin being the 3th one I own. The look is beautiful, the electric part works very well. Stays in tune, mine was already set up, so did not have to do any work on it. Did change the strings because I think the ones it had were a little hard so I put a new set of Martins and it makes a difference. The semi gloss finish makes it a beautiful instrument. Very happy with it. Bought also the Musicians gear economy mandolin case and it fits perfectly but most important fully protects the instrument.

                  Bought this after getting an "Alligator" which I'm very happy with. Mandolin sounds good plugged in, but playing acoustic it's very dead. I have a laminate mandolin that has far more sound. After my experience with the resonator guitar from Gretsch, I was very disappointed with the sound of this mandolin.

                    This is my second mandolin. After having a dumpy savanah for two years, the neck started cracking and it lost it's intonation. I wanted something a little bit better and found this. The action is great, and it feels solid. I haven't been able to put it down since it arrived. Great intro/cheap mid level mando.
