Gretsch G9202 Honey Dipper Special Resonator
Before the existence of a mass produced electric guitar, many guitarists of the 1920's felt overwhelmed when playing along side horns and brass instruments in dance groups. This called for the creation of a louder acoustic guitar.
Resonator or 'Resophonic' guitars as they are sometimes called, creates it's sound from a spun metal cone underneath the distinctive 'pie tin' resonator top. The bridge and strings run directly to this plate where the sound 'resonates' to produce the classic bluegrass sound, loved by players world over for years.
