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.
Check out the demo of the Roots Collection instrument below.

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.

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.
“A resonator has always been the easiest way to bag some classic Delta blues and bluegrass tones; the Bobtail just makes it more affordable,” said the magazine.
