Gretsch have come to their senses and, after a long absence, brought back the New Yorker Mandolin. This modern version brings with it the aesthetics and styling of the original 1950s model, whilst ensuring all the full-bodied tone and smooth playability you could hope for.
Despite its rich heritage, the Gretsch G9320 New Yorker Deluxe Mandolin comes in at a great price, without compromising on quality or tone. Its combination of a solid spruce top and mahogany back & sides provide a well-textured palette, with emphasis on the high and mid range. The sound is given more character by the instrument’s classic F holes.
As can be seen by the image, Gretsch haven’t skimped on the aesthetics when putting the Gretsch G9320 New Yorker Deluxe Mandolin together. The stunning solid spruce top can be seen through the respectful antique semi-gloss 3-tone sunburst finish, accented by an aged white body binding, tortoiseshell pickguard and nickel-plated hardware.
Giving playability to match the Gretsch G9320 New Yorker Deluxe Mandolin’s voice and design is a mahogany neck with a vintage U profile, which has been finished with an antique semi-gloss finish that gives a subtle nod to its past and provides an enjoyable surface to play on. Atop the neck is a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard outfitted with pearl dot inlays and partnered by a rosewood bridge and vintage clamshell tailpiece. At the other end you’ll find a 1950s Gretsch headstock equipped with a set of Grover Sta-Tite Die-Cast tuners.
Although great unplugged, the Gretsch G9320 New Yorker Deluxe Mandolin can be hooked up to an amp or PA system, thanks to the inclusion of a Piezo Electric bridge pickup.
