The miracle of volume with a retro vibe.

When you play chunk rhythm, finger-style, bottleneck or anything else, the all-mahogany deluxe-appointed G9240 Alligator Biscuit Roundneck resonator guitar projects its distinctively swampy tones all the way to the back door of any dance hall. Like all fine Gretsch resonator guitars, the vital feature of the G9240 is the all-new Gretsch "Ampli-Sonic" diaphragm (resonator cone). Hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99-percent pure aluminum, the Ampli-Sonic diaphragm yields an impressive quality and volume of tone.

Case sold separately.

    As reviewed by erik eskildsen on 5/31/2013

    oh yeah, this is a very nice instrument for a very nice price. I got this to play on the boardwalk....didn't want to expose my vintage resonator to that environment no mo.. the quality and volume of this little guitar are a home run. only downside is the short is pretty hard to reach notes above the 12th fret.. shake em on down....
