The Gretsch Style 3 G9531 Double-0 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar in Appalachia Cloudburst is a superb addition to their Roots Collection of acoustic guitars. Calling to mind models that shaped roots and folk music in the early years of the 20th century, Gretsch have crafted a model steeped in history with a modern twist to make it a fantastic performer for guitarists of all ages and skill levels - and all at an affordable price.
Cool Grand Concert body
The Style 3 G9531 double-0 is shaped to the grand concert body shape, which is perfect for those who want a full-bodied tone that produces a resounding low-end, softened mid-range, and sweet highs. The smaller body shape combined with a tapered waist makes the grand concert a highly versatile instrument, which is perfect for players who like to switch between various musical styles with ease.
The laminated mahogany back and sides establish a warm mid-range tonal foundation. Thanks to the laminate design, the body stands up well to changes in humidity and temperature, make it exceptionally resilient when you're out on tour. The top is built from solid spruce, which is a popular choice as a soundboard due to its impressive ability to project with confidence, contributing to the impressive dynamic range. The top is reinforced using quartersawn X-bracing to prevent unwanted buckling or warping over time.
Sturdy mahogany neck
Connected to the body is a full-length 24.875-inch mahogany neck, which guarantees a firm and unyielding playing support to perform on. To prevent unwanted stickiness or tackiness from holding you back, a subtle satin finish has been applied to the neck. Shaped to the slim "C" profile, the neck sits comfortably in the hand. Paired with the neck is a 19-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with mother-of-pearl dot inlays to guide you.
Starting at the headstock, you'll find vintage-style open-back tuning machines, which work dutifully alongside the bone nut to ensure uniform string tension and tuning integrity. The body is home to a rosewood bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain. Aged white neck binding traces from the headstock to the body, complementing the exquisite Appalachia Cloudburst finish perfectly.
The Gretsch Style 3 G9531 Double-0 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar in Appalachia Cloudburst is great for taking to the stage with, chilling out or jamming with friends, and is ideal for those who want a model that travels well.
