Overview

Rich in voice and style, Gretsch Guitars' Roots Collection Acoustic-Electric Guitars represent a level of design, detail and craftsmanship not seen since days long gone. Inspired by tradition, yet rooted in pure Gretsch sensibility, these instruments speak with voices that harken back to a bygone era of "living room" choruses and prairie melodies.

Dressed to impress, the Roots Collection G9531E Style 3 Double-0 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar 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. This 24.87 in. scale model is constructed of sturdy, laminated mahogany with a solid Sitka spruce top, a mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard. Some of its special appointments include an 1800’s "thin" bridge with solid maple bridge plate, handmade, all-wood early "Arts & Crafts"-era marquetry, unbleached nut with matching "wavy" saddle, and an Appalachia Cloudburst finish.

Case sold separately.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars Roots Collection G9531E Style 3 Double-0 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased this Gretsch 9531E in June 2017. It proved to be a fine travel guitar that was fun to play. In January 2018, I noticed that the guitar's bridge began to separate from the bridge plate and body. I called Fender/Gretsch Customer Service Department and spoke to a guitar service tech. He attributed the bridge problem to an environment that was too dry. I told him that I had four other acoustic guitars in my music room and none had any such problems because I have a whole house humidifier. The humidity in the music room never drops below 50%. I have a hygrometer in close proximity to my guitars. The service tech instructed me to take the guitar to a certified Gretsch guitar repair tech and have him certify that the bridge problem was a manufacturer's defect. I took the guitar to the GC in Cary, NC, and the repair tech sent Gretsch the necessary documentation verifying the manufacturer's defect. Gretsch instructed the GC Cary to destroy the guitar and Gretsch would send me a new replacement. I received the new replacement in early March. Three weeks after I received the new G9531E, the bridge began to separate from the body. I took the guitar to the GC in Raleigh, NC, where I bought the original guitar. After reviewing my documentation, the GC manager gave me a full in-store credit for the guitar and hard shell case. Although the process was exasperating, I thank the GC's in Raleigh and Cary for their excellent customer service and follow-up. I happened to notice a new G9531 on display in the GC in Raleigh with a bridge that was beginning to separate from the body. So apparently, this is a systemic problem!

Great guitar

Comments about Gretsch Guitars Roots Collection G9531E Style 3 Double-0 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:

I tried this guitar based on the recommendation of an employee at Guitar Center in Dallas. I played several more expensive guitars beforehand and he asked me to try this Gretsch. It only took about 5 minutes to fall in love. This guitar plays very well and sounds very fat and sweet. I've played for over 30 years and owned several acoustics but this is far and away my fave. It sounds like it should cost 3 times as much. The factory description of the sound is perfect. It's a very even and balanced sound and I can't wait till I get this guitar broken in. It will only get better with age.

    Great as a Travel Guitar!

    By Tom DC

    from Raleigh, NC

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars Roots Collection G9531E Style 3 Double-0 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:

    I've had the Gretsch G9531E-GCFSR guitar for about 3 weeks. I had narrowed my search for a travel guitar to the Gretsch G9531 and the Alvarez Parlor Acoustic-Electric. Both guitars played well, but the Alvarez sounded a little better and had the pickup already installed. When the new G9531E-GCFSR arrived at the local GC, I purchased it immediately. The Gretsch just looks great, and plays and sounds far better than most travel guitars. The Fishman pickup system is fine, but not great. I found that setting the volume and tone to the max on the guitar and controlling the volume and tone at the amp achieves the most desirable sounds. The aesthetics of the G9531 are nicer than the G9531-GCFSR, with more attractive fretboard position inlays, rosette, and body bindings. The G9531 also has a pick guard. The Fishman pickup system sold me on the G9531-GCFSR. I purchased a standard classic guitar hardshell case which fit very well. I am very pleased with the Gretsch and would highly recommend it! It is a terrific value! My main acoustic guitar is a Gibson Hummingbird Pro that I also purchased at my local GC in Raleigh, NC.

    Best deal I've ever gotten from GC. Sounds amazing plugged in and not. Great size, exactly what I wanted. Almost pulled the trigger on a GS Mini and I am glad I didn't. I paid half the price for a guitar that does the same thing and looks great.

    This guitar sounds amazing. It sounds better when using picks than fingering.
