GAK Music Demos the Gretsch G9200 Boxcar Round-Neck Resonator

Posted:

In a recent product demo, GAK Music in the U.K.  called the Gretsch G9200 Boxcar Round-Neck Resonator a “miracle of volume.”

“With its mahogany ‘long-body’ design and comfortable soft-’V’ neck, this faithful reissue of the 1930s classic sounds and plays like a million bucks,” they noted.

Guitarist Magazine Reviews a Gretsch G6139T-CBDC Falcon Center-Block Double Cutaway Guitar

Posted:

Guitarist magazine recently checked out a brand new Gretsch G6139T-CBDC Falcon Center-Block Double Cutaway and recorded a demo video.

Reviewer Chris Vinnicombe dispelled the belief that Gretsch guitars are only for “rockabilly outlaws and retro rock ‘n’ roll gunslingers,” and noted that the Gretsch G6139T-CBDC is a great example of rock-and-roll-meets-Chet Atkins.

“If you can bring yourself to back off the gain, there’s still plenty of Chet here, too, and for that Beatles For Sale/Help!-era Harrison sound simply flip the pickup selector to the middle setting and dial in a suitably bright amp tone,” said Vinnicombe.

Patrick Stump Discusses His New Gretsch Signature Model

Posted:

Fall Out Boy is back and better than ever in 2013, and so is singer/guitarist Patrick Stump’s signature Gretsch guitar model, the G5135CVT-PS Stump-O-Matic Patrick Vaughn Stump Signature Electromatic® CVT, as seen (and heard) below.

In this video clip, Stump himself gives you a guided tour of the guitar, which now features a white finish with gray “competition” stripes for a cleanly elegant look with a dash of attitude. In a variety of styles, he gets a variety of sounds from its tonally versatile three-pickup design with special electronics—going from crushing full-on distortion one minute to sharply clean funk-style rhythm tone the next, and even convincingly rich acoustic-like tone, too. And watch as he “plays” the kill switch …

Guitarist magazine recently tested a Gretsch G9220 Roundneck resonator and gave it four out of five stars for playability and affordability.
