Gretsch G9201 Honey Dipper, a brass body resonator guitar that is perfect for folk and bluegrass styles.

Gretsch G9201 Honey Dipper Resonator

Evoking the essence of 1930s American Deep South, the Gretsch Honey Dipper is a beautiful, metal body resonator guitar.

Coming from Gretsch’s Roots Collection, the Honey Dipper brings together authentic, vintage style with modern playability.

Gretsch G9201 Honey Dipper Resonator Guitar with Shed Roof Finish Key Features:

  • Great Vintage Look
  • Authentic 1930s Sound
  • Period Accurate 1930S Gretsch Headstock
  • Brass Body
  • Hand Spun Resonator Cone
  • Padauk Fretboard

Constructing the Gretsch Honey Dipper

Gretsch’s Honey Dipper has a bell brass body which houses an Ampli-Sonic biscuit-bridge cone which has been hand spun from 99% pure aluminium. The resulting sound is that classic, sharp tone of a single-cone resonator.

A Maple neck is joined to the body at the 12th fret and features a Padauk fretboard with simple white dot position markers and 19 frets.

The large medium-V shape profile to the neck Is comfortable to hold and adds is another element of the Honey Dipper’s vintage authenticity.

A Classic Look from Yesteryear

Not only does the Honey Dipper resonator sound like a guitar from years past, it looks like one too.

At the top of the neck is a 1930s Gretsch 3x3 headstock featuring a paddle-shaped silhouette that has been capped with pearloid with truss-rod cover to match. To top it off, it even holds a period accurate Gretsch logo.

On the body of the Gretsch G9201, the cone cover plate features a beautiful cut out poinsettia design which is elegantly complemented by twin segmented f-holes.

High Quality Hardware

Up on that 1930s headstock is a set of six Grover Sta-Tite tuners, allowing for quick, precise and extremely secure tuning. They are completed by black buttons, furthering that antique effect.

On the body, there’s a biscuit bridge of hard Maple with an Ebony and Maple saddle, while at the top of the neck you’ll find a bone nut, aligning your strings perfectly while aiding sustain and a natural brightness in your sound.

Get the Old Timey Sound and Look

With its resonance and natural reverb, the Honey Dipper has a really bright and energetic sound.

Finished in a weathered Pump House Roof colouring, along with all its vintage appointments, the Honey Dipper certainly looks the part too.

A great example of the quality instruments available in the Gretsch Roots Collection, the G9201 Honey Dipper looks great, has amazing sound to back it up and comes in at a really nice price point.
