OVERVIEW

Traditional mahogany design with modern construction and components perfect for blues.

The Gretsch G9200 Boxcar Resonator marks the return of resonators to the Gretsch family. It has the round neck that's preferable for blues-based music such as Mississippi Delta blues, country blues or even ragtime blues. A square neck version, which is used for bluegrass, is also available (please see model G9210, our sku# H80549). The G9200 features a beautiful mahogany body with traditional-style F holes. The heart of this richly resounding guitar is the Gretsch Ampli-Sonic resonator cone, hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99-percent pure aluminum for fantastic volume and sonic projection.

Gretsch is proud to take players on a musical journey through nearly a century of great Gretsch history by introducing its Roots Collection of acoustic instruments. This exciting family of banjos, mandolins, resonator guitars, ukuleles and Rancher acoustic guitars feature classically authentic Gretsch designs that transport players to a bygone era well before the company made its acclaimed 1950s entry into the electric guitar world.

Case sold separately.

      My son and I took this beauty on the streets of Tarpon Springs Florida. It was so fun to play it looks and sound great. We went home happy and with a full tip bucket. Bottom line, you should buy this guitar.

            new to playing slide, but this git almost plays itself. very nice action just like it is, but I may raise it just a tad. sounds so nice and bluesy with brass and glass. looks super cool and the v shaped neck gives your thumb something to ride on. I love this guitar. if you are on the fence on this one, and you want a reso, pull the trigger baby!!

              Comments about Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9200 Boxcar Round Neck Resonator:

              I was amazed at the quality offered for the price. Gretsch clearly does a good job of quality control at the factory that produces these. While not really an exceptional guitar the Boxcar represents a very good buy for the money. The guitar seems to be very well constructed of good materials, plays well and with a great tone. I've always wanted a resonator guitar, but could not quite make the numbers work.

              Comments about Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9200 Boxcar Round Neck Resonator:

              This thing sounds SWEEEEEET. I was so excited to open up the box when it finally was shipped (after being on backorder a few weeks) and was amazed and how carefully and well packaged it was. After tearing through a few layers of foam, cardboard, and packing material, I got her out and she gleamed from the start. It was even almost tuned already, just short adjustments is all it took before I was strumming away! It's clean and has a great warm tone, perfect for blues or western pickin' at any time. This resonator has a beautiful body that is very rustic. It doesn't come with electric pickups, but who needs 'em when you just want classic!

                  I'm a beginner with the resonator guitar and playing slide. I got tired of practicing slide guitar on my Gibson acoustic, which wasn't set up for playing slide. When I first played this guitar I immediately noticed how much easier it was to get a clean sound with the slide (the action is higher than my Gibson). I feel like this guitar is great for beginning slide players and cheap enough to justify purchasing for that purpose alone.

                    Bought one at the recommendation of a luthier friend. The quality was better than expected, though there is a strong aroma of glue. The item was listed as Condition 2, but looks in mint condition. Intonation at bit off at the 12th fret on the D and B strings, hopefully that can be corrected by my luthier.

                              Root Series G9200 Boxcar Round Neck Resonator is surprisingly warm sounding for a spider. Has that nice spider whine to it which seems to come from the depths of the entire instrument.

                              I particularly like the sound once you get above the 5th fret.

                              This guitar gives back a lot for what you put into it.
