Gretsch Welcomes New Models to Roots Collection
Gretsch has announced
the release of five additions to its Roots Collection, an eclectic
family of banjos, mandolins, resonator guitars, ukuleles and
Rancher acoustic guitars that evoke a feel and look of the era
before the company made its entry into the electric guitar world in
Faithful to the Gretsch "Rex" parlor guitars of the 1930s, '40s
and '50s, the all-new G9500 Jim Dandy™ Flat Top parlor-style model
embodies everything that was great about everyone's first guitar.
Everything and then some, that is, because the G9500 is crafted
with select guitar woods and is fully lined and braced for warm and
pleasing tone, with a 24" scale for endless hours of playing
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
The new G9101 NYC Camp Uke is a must-have for every uke
collector. A faithful recreation of the circa 1925-1935 Gretsch
"Camp" uke, it's built to be tossed in your knapsack and played
around the campfire down at the bench, out in the words or anyplace
else where the day takes you. Features include maple top, back and
sides; nato neck with 14 frets clear of the body; wooden nut and
saddle; 13.5" soprano scale length; friction tuning pegs; Aquila®
Nylgut strings; and distinctive vintage semi-gloss "over-all" blue
With its powerful 6" "biscuit" resonator cone, Gretsch's

pleasingly prominent in any acoustic mix. Other premium features

top, back and sides; one-piece mahogany neck with bone nut;
rosewood fingerboard with 16 frets (12 to body); 15" scale length;

The all-new tenor-size Gretsch G9126 Guitar Ukulele lets any
guitarist sweeten the proceedings with beautifully lilting ukulele
tones. With six strings tuned "A" to "A" in standard guitar
intervals, the G9126 is ideal for extended-range uke arrangements
and is perfect for the younger player. Premium features include a
