Overview

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.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9240 Alligator Biscuit Round Neck Resonator:

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 neck....it is pretty hard to reach notes above the 12th fret.. shake em on down....

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9240 Alligator Biscuit Round Neck Resonator:

    Took about two days to convert this to a lefty with a new bone nut and some very minor disassembly. Set up was great even after reversing the Fishman connected bridge 180 degrees -- perfect note pitch from open string ton12 fret for all six strings. Very nice build, finish, fit and complements. Small blemish in the line printing on the mother of pearl headstock veneer near the truss rod cover -- shouldn't have passed QA, but these things are made in China these days and i could fix it with some patience and a superfinepoint Sharpie. Plays very well for fingerpicking despite a really flat radius neck and a short scale. Sounds "ok" on its own, but really shines when plugged into a Fishman acoustic amp. It definitely fills a hole in my band when we do some Alternative styles ad offers a nice tenor-range brightness for finger pickings or lead guitar fills. Overall a good instrument and value.
