OVERVIEW

Traditional mahogany design with modern construction and Fishman electronics perfect for bluegrass.

The Gretsch G9230 Bobtail Acoustic-Electric Resonator marks the return of resonators to the Gretsch family. It has the square neck that's preferable for bluegrass. A round-neck version, which is better for blues-based music, is also available (please see model G9220, our sku# H80542). The G9230 features a beautifully-bound 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. The onboard Fishman Nashville pickup features a split saddle piezo-ceramic pickup designed specifically for spider-style bridges and offers consistent, accurate sound reproduction for every performance.

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.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9230 Bobtail Square Neck Acoustic-Electric Resonator:

      I was looking for a Resonator to play "flat" that could give me a good Country/Bluegrass sound... but also a good Blues sound. The Bobtail gives me just what I was looking for. Wonderful warm tone with just the right amount of "twang". The Fishman pickup is fabulous. There are no pickup controls on the guitar but that's ok with me. I think obvious electronics would take away from the looks of the guitar. I can always adjust my amp as needed. (just my 2 cents)

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9230 Bobtail Square Neck Acoustic-Electric Resonator:

      All around a typical Dobro sound, lacks tone and volume control on instrument, the plug receptical is difficult to insert plug. Other than that a nice instrument for the price.
