Gretsch Roots Collection
The G9230 Bobtail Deluxe Resonator comes from the Gretsch Roots Collection which aims to resurrect classic designs from past generations and bring their unique tones to the modern stage. The G9230 Square Neck is perfect for creating the loud and metallic tones of bluegrass when played on the lap with a slide. Featuring a Fishman pickup, this guitar will also allow you to take those same delta tones to the stage. If you need a unique tonal addition to your guitar collection, or simply want to explore the delta-blues sound both at home and on the stage, here is the ideal instrument to let you do so.
"More Powerful Than A Locomotive!"
The G29230 Bobtail Deluxe features the Gretsch Ampli-Sonic diaphragm (resonator cone) which is hand-spun in Eastern Europe and crafted from nearly 99 percent pure aluminium. This creates the resonator's distinct metallic overtones and delta-blues sound. It is mounted to a mahogany body; a wood chosen for its warmth and projection. The mahogany neck and katalox fingerboard provide additional sustain and dark resonance. If you're familiar with the delta-blues sound, this guitar will allow you to recreate it in a powerful and authentic way.
Ready For The Stage
The G9230 Bobtail Deluxe includes Fishman's Nashville series pickup to provide you with authentic delta-blues tones in an amplified environment. The pickup offers clear and accurate tone which suits modern signal chains, including direct recording or stage performances. Although the Bobtail is already a loud acoustic instrument, the pickup system will let you take that tone onto the stage when you need the added volume to compete in a loud environment.
Comfortable Playing And Traditional Good Looks
The G9230 Bobtail Deluxe features a square-back neck with a flat neck profile to fit comfortably on your lap. The body features traditional f-holes and is finished in a lovely 2-tone sunburst to let the beauty of the mahogany show through. With its traditional design features, the G9230 wouldn't look out-of-place from many decades ago in the Mississippi delta, and will give you authentic and powerful tones.
