Tone amplified! With its deluxe appointments and Fishman Nashville pickup, the Bobtail Round-Neck stands out in the mix in more ways than one.

The Root Series G9220 Bobtail Round Neck Acoustic/Electric Resonator features a beautifully-bound mahogany body with traditional-style F holes. The heart of this richly resounding guitar is the Gretsch Ampli-Sonic resonator cone, hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99-percent pure aluminum for fantastic volume and sonic projection. The onboard Fishman Nashville pickup features a split saddle piezo-ceramic pickup designed specifically for spider-style bridges and offers consistent, accurate sound reproduction for every performance. Case not included.

Great sound, but profound problems with construction

Comments about Gretsch G9220 Bobtail Round-Neck Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

The Gretsch Bobtail - indeed, all the Gretsch resonator guitars - will seduce you, only to break your heart. Coming out of the box, the guitar feels good and the sound is great, especially so for a new guitar. But within two weeks the 3rd and 4th strings start developing a buzz from the 5th to the 12th fret, that echoes within the resonator cone. Sam Ash gave me a replacement with no questions asked, but that one also developed a problem in the exact same place. And yet another replacement (thank you, Sam Ash) and again the same problem. They took it into their repair shop, but nothing could be done to stop the problem. I've been told that the Chinese manufacturers have been informed of the problem by retailers about this recurring problem, but refuse to address it. Sam Ash finally gave me a credit for my purchase and perhaps I'll use it purchase a Dobro or National. But, what a disappointment.

    Comments about Gretsch G9220 Bobtail Round-Neck Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

    I play a squareneck resonator but was shopping around for a round neck to add to my repertoire the G9220 Bobtail Round-Neck was the one I chose armed with my picks and capo i tried other resonators but when I tried this model out the sound was wonderful then the salesrep let me retune it to D it was magic the resonance was superb and at the time i didn't know it had a pick up built in we plug it in to a amp i was blown away this guitar went home with me
