As part of their Roots collection, the Gretsch G9220 Bobtail round-neck resonator resurrects the style and sounds of the original 1930s models. Drawing on a wealth of experience gained over their 130-year history, Gretsch has crafted the Bobtail to their customary high standard of quality, delivering an exceptional model that exceeds the expectations of today's musicians. The beautiful natural finish combined with the modest design of the metal cone not only looks wonderful, but also produces rich and powerful tones.

To give the body of the G9220 a rugged and reliable feel, laminated mahogany has been tasked with the job of generating a generous stirring mid to low-end warmth. As the mahogany is laminated, this gives the wood fantastic resilience in handling changes in temperature and humidity, making it perfect for globetrotting musicians. The top has been given a subtle 2-colour sunburst finish, complete with "F" holes to accentuate the top's projection. Into the body sits the all-new Gretsch "Ampli-Sonic" diaphragm (resonator cone), which is hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99-percent pure aluminium, allowing it to yield an impressive sonic quality with a wide dynamic range.

Fitted to the body is the sturdy mahogany neck, which has been shaped to a classic medium "V" profile. The neck has been finished in semi-gloss vintage sunburst. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 19 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with pearloid dot position inlays to aid in your navigation.

For those wishing to take their Bobtail to the stage or want to plug in and play, the G9220 is equipped with a Fishman Nashville Series Resophonic pickup, perfectly suited to delivering the timbre of the resonator with the utmost transparency.

The 1930's Gretsch headstock with aged pearloid face carries the Grover Sta-Tite die-cast tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision. The bone nut maintains string tension for a consistent playing feel - important when performing slide.

Whether you're an amateur or a touring pro, if you've coveted the classic resonator tone's associated with players like Son House, or styles such as blues, bluegrass and country of the 1920s/30s, then the Gretsch G9220 Bobtail round-neck resonator takes you closer than ever to reaching tonal nirvana.
