G9240 Alligator™ Round-Neck, Mahogany Body Biscuit Cone Resonator Guitar, 2-Color Sunburst

Model: 2718010503

The miracle of volume! Whether you play chunk rhythm, fingerstyle, bottleneck or anything else, the all-mahogany G9240 Alligator Biscuit Roundneck resonator guitar with deluxe appointments projects its distinctively swampy tone all the way to the back door of any dancehall. Like all fine Gretsch® resonator guitars, the vital feature of the G9240 is the 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 of tone.
