The Gretsch G9210 Boxcar square-neck resonator harks back to the early-twentieth century; to the classic Gretsch models of the 1930s, delivering rich tones and plenty of power that modern players crave.
The heart of the G9210 is a combination of gorgeous mahogany, a tonewood that is revered for its sumptuous tones that are full of vitality and warmth. This is delightfully combined with Gretsch's own Ampli-Sonic Spider Resonator cone and bridge - hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99% pure aluminium -, delivering that enigmatic "jangly" tone that purist's desire. Carefully crafted F-holes work with the body shape and design, allowing the full character of the tone to be projected with the utmost clarity. The tonewood has been given a semi-gloss honey mahogany stain to evoke a vintage aesthetic that is true to earlier models.
Connected to the body is a robust square mahogany neck. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fretboard, which is home to 19 enticing frets. The neck is also treated to a semi-gloss honey mahogany stain to match the body.
The 1930s Gretsch headstock displays an aged pearloid face. Grover Sta-Tite die-cast tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with vigour throughout the most energetic of performances, allowing you to get on with what you do best. The bone nut maintains intonation beautifully, and the bridge/tailpiece partnership creates a seamless union between the strings and body.
If you’re looking for a resonator that brings to life the spirit and character of earlier 20th Century models, then the Gretsch G9210 Boxcar Square-Neck Resonator is a fantastic choice. The attention-to-detail is breathtaking, and it is clear that this instrument is a labour of love for Gretsch. From the sublime playing feel to the full-bodied tones, this is a guitar that deserves to be cherished.
