OVERVIEW

The miracle of volume with a retro vibe.

When you play chunk rhythm, finger-style, bottleneck or anything else, the all-mahogany deluxe-appointed G9240 Alligator Biscuit Roundneck resonator guitar projects its distinctively swampy tones all the way to the back door of any dance hall. Like all fine Gretsch resonator guitars, the vital feature of the G9240 is the all-new Gretsch "Ampli-Sonic" diaphragm (resonator cone). Hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99-percent pure aluminum, the Ampli-Sonic diaphragm yields an impressive quality and volume of tone.

Case sold separately.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9240 Alligator Round-Neck, Mahogany Body Biscuit Cone Resonator Guitar:

      I'm an experienced guitar player and own a few nice acoustic and electric guitars. I don't have any experience with resonators and bought this one to get my feet wet. Well, it sounds really nice and it is comfortable to play. It makes me want to keep playing. I think it is a great resonator guitar to start. My plan was to buy this to learn open tunings and slide and maybe buy a National in the future, but, who knows. Maybe I'll just keep this one.
