Rich in voice and style, ROOTS COLLECTION™ Acoustic Guitars represent a design, detail and craftsmanship sensibilities that are associated with instruments of the past. Inspired by tradition, yet rooted in pure Gretsch sensibility, these instruments speak with voices that harken back to a bygone era of living room family singing and prairie melodies.
Dressed to impress with a stunning tortoise headcap with pearl logo and upgraded pearl inlay design, the G9531 Style 3 Double-0 model sounds out loud with a big, rich bass that is full and under control. The high-end is very liquid; not too fast and folds into the tone with a nice, decaying bloom that seems to float through the room.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9531 Style 3 Double-0 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:
I wanted a small guitar I could play sitting in an armchair while watching TV, etc. This one fits the bill. The action is low and comfortable. This one caught my eye because of its very cool looks and cosmetic details. Yes, it has the somewhat plunky tone of a small-body parlor model, but it's balanced, and unlike other cheaper similar models, the high notes sing clear and sustain. The deep body allows good volume and projection, and the intonation is good all the way up the neck. I have other more expensive guitars and a few vintage parlor models that I don't like to over-use. This one is a situational axe suitable for country blues and general fun. I wish the fingerboard was just a tiny bit wider for finger picking, though.
