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.

Poor Quality Control


This guitar sounded very good for it's price point, much better than the Gretsch G9221 metal body I had also purchased. The tone was nice and the sound was crisp & loud. It sounded great strummed, finger picked, and playing slide on. And from a few feet away this guitar looked beautiful as well. The reason I gave it 3 stars is because of the quality control...or lack thereof. Upon closer inspection, you could see dried glue all over the fretboard, poor finishing in the area where the neck joins the body (picture sanding it down with very heavy grit sandpaper). And the A, D, & G strings all had fret buzz on the first 3 frets. I have purchased 5 Gretsch guitars over the years. Four of them were the value priced models, and all 4 were returned due to quality control issues. The only Grestch guitar I still own and love is the higher end 'Made in Japan' Brian Setzer signature model. Gretsch really needs to get ahold of their quality control on their value priced models. I have bought several value priced guitars from Guild and Epiphone and have never had the issues I've had with Gretsch.
