The Gretsch Roots Collection resurrects timeless designs that take you through nearly a century of sound. Inspired by tradition, these instruments capture the voices and sounds of generations past and celebrate the deep musical roots inside each of us.


Remarkable Gretsch Ampli-Sonic™ resonator guitars add powerfully distinctive tone to the Roots Collection. The mahogany-body Boxcar™ Standard and Bobtail™ Deluxe each come in round-neck and square-neck models, and the round-neck Honey Dipper™ has a nickel-plated brass body. And don't even get us started on the "AlligatorTM" Biscuit Roundneck model. The heart of each richly resounding guitar is the new Gretsch Ampli-Sonic resonator cone, hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99-percent pure aluminum for fantastic volume and sonic projection.


At the request of Gretsch fans worldwide, the Roots Collection also presents gorgeous new Gretsch ukulele models. The uke is experiencing one of its phenomenal resurgences in popularity, once again bringing the lilting sounds of the South Sea islands to delighted ears everywhere, Gretsch’s three deluxe ukuleles—the Concert Deluxe, Tenor Deluxe and Tenor Cutaway Electric models—boast premium construction features such as quartersawn solid mahogany top, back and sides; one-piece mahogany necks and handsome semi-gloss finishes. The three standard ukes—the Soprano Standard, Concert Standard and Tenor Standard models—deliver laminated mahogany build and other fine features. Along with the Guitar-Ukulele, Resonator-Ukulele and "NYC" Camp Uke, all Gretsch ukuleles deliver great looks, smooth feel and wonderfully singing tone.
