Classic Roundneck Resonator from Gretsch

First developed in the pre-amplified 1920s to accompany the much-louder horn instruments in popular ensembles of the time, resonator guitars are truly a uniquely American innovation. The Gretsch G9240 Alligator Biscuit Roundneck Resonator stays true to the design and features of these early resonators with an all-mahogany body and Gretsch Ampli-Sonic diaphragm resonator cone. This aluminum cone is hand-spun in Eastern Europe and kicks out an impressive level of volume and mesmerizing resonant midrange. A gorgeous padauk fingerboard with abalone dot inlays responds beautifully whether you are playing chords or using a slide. The G9240 lets you explore the styles of old country, blues, and early folk as well as whatever sonic innovations you envision. Resonator players love the G9240 Alligator Biscuit Roundneck Resonator for its playability and tone.

Beautifully appointed

Gretsch’s G9240 Alligator Biscuit Roundneck Resonator features tasteful vintage appointments that would look right at home in the company’s catalogs of yesteryear. With the G9240, you get a lovely mahogany top graced with a vintage semi-gloss natural finish that not only looks great but also enhances the instrument’s tone. There is also the simple yet mesmerizing design of the biscuit resonator itself which just oozes old-timey vibe and makes you happy they do still make a classic instrument like the G9240.

Gretsch’s legacy in American music

The Gretsch G9240 standard resonator guitar transports you back to Gretsch’s roots in American music. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but many don’t know they got their start in 1883 as a banjo company. It wasn’t long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top guitars, contributing to the very roots of American music. So when you pick up a Gretsch resonator, you’re holding more than a great resonator, you’re holding a piece of American music history.
