Overview

The Gretsch G9210 Boxcar 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 G9200, our sku# H80534). The G9210 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.

The value based leader

By JAN VIGNE

from Dallas, TX

When taken in the context of other less than $500 resonators, the Gretsch Boxcar scores a full 5 stars. Nothing I've tried from other manufacturers even comes close! Gretsch (now owned by Fender) has done a marvelous job with the Boxcar in every area that counts. I don't have the funds to spend on bling that doesn't add to the sound of the instrument. Yet, I've so far not pulled the Boxcar out of its bag without receiving compliments on its terrific looks. Nothing special really, just good clean lines and a nice finish all well executed. This resonator looks old without looking like someone has taken a bag full of nails to beat it into "roadworn" condition. Who would have thought Fender would exercise such restraint? The back of the headstock bears the words "Handcrafted in China". Well, Fender/Gretsch must be doing some great QC over there. The only flaw you could dispute in the Gretsch's fit and finish is an ever so slight amount of poly finish buildup at the body/neck join. So slight you have to be looking for a problem to notice, this is far less than I've seen on other third world originated guitars including those selling for twice the price of the Boxcar. You really have to look hard to spot any flaws in this instrument, it's that good. And you will get compliments on its looks, people can't seem to restrain themselves. Sit down to play the Boxcar and the sound quality of the Boxcar satisfies everyone who praises its looks - neophytes and experienced players alike. I had inquired on a guitar forum which resonator to play first and last and the Gretsch received unanimous approval. I've cruised the resonator/steel forums and seen nothing but praise for the Gretsch line of resonators from those who have far more experience and far more instruments than I ever will. It is acknowledged to be the value based leader in this price range. Excellent parts for the money and top notch care taken in assembly right down to the set up right out of the box are noted to be the hallmarks of a great resonator and are there to be found in the Gretsch Boxcars. I own the SquareNeck and it's exactly what I wanted in a resonator; easy to play, terrific intonation and a comfortable fit in my lap. The inner parts are what count most in a resonator and the Gretsch scores high on these points with many ol'timers taken by the quality found in the Boxcar. Make no mistake, this is not a $1k resonator or even a $700 instrument. It' an entry level guitar that has everything going for it as a fine tool for the budding player. If you have more money to spend, you can enter the second tier of resonators which will show the limitations of the Boxcar. Slightly light on bass and not quite as sweet in the mids and highs as, say, a GoldTone, the sustain of more precious resonators will only serve to point up the value of the Boxcar. I play with a professional musician who has a truly fine resonator and even she is impressed by the Gretsch. Since parts are interchangeable in most resonators, the Gretsch can be upgraded when funds allow. It will never be a Beard or a Scheerhorn but it will be an instrument you can own with pride and only make better as funds allow. Before you spend money on any other off shore resonator, you really should spend time with the Gretsch. From the first lick you'll hear and feel the quality built into this instrument. Great job Fender! (Additionally, my correspondence with Fender/Gretsch regarding C6 strings was answered promptly and courteously. Uncommon customer service in today's market.)

Feels like you own a piece of history!

By Christian Ticas

from Pasadena

When i first brought it home, i was excited. I mean the guitar looks great. The guy at guitar center was even a bit upset because he himself wanted it. Though, after really getting to play more Resonators, I realized it is a bit lacking in the tone, but a GREAT guitar to take your guitaring up a notch. Has a very deep tone, and a great price for the look and feel. I recommend it.
