Steel Body with Ampli-Sonic Resonator

Gretsch have made the body of the G9231 Bobtail completely of steel which will give you that beautiful steel guitar tone with great volume that cuts through the mix.

Along with the all-steel body, a further driving force behind the Gretsch G9231’s distinctive tone is the Ampli-Sonic Spider cone diaphragm resonator which has been hand spun in Eastern Europe from 99% pure aluminium.

Square Neck Neck

The Gretsch G9231 Bobtail’s Mahogany neck with its 1930s headstock featuring a period accurate old style Gretsch logo over an aged pearloid face is nicely playable and looks great.

Atop the neck, you'll find a new Padauk fretboard which is extremely similar to traditional Rosewood in both looks, qualities and playing feels but comes from a more sustainable source.

There are 19 frets while simple dot inlays guide the way along the comfortable 25" scale length.

Being the square-neck edition of this guitar, it is perfect for playing slide and gives you the most authentic, vintage playing experience and tone.

Quality Hardware and Electronics

In the body of the Gretsch Bobtail, you’ll find a Fishman Nashvhille spider bridge and the resonator.

Ornately cut out with a beautiful nickel poinsettia design cover plate, the Ampli-Sonic resonator looks fantastic itself and is joined on the body by twin f-holes, adding that beautiful, classic look while aiding in sound creation and projection.

On the 1930s inspired headstock, you’ll find Grover Sta-Tite tuning machines which provide extremely precise and secure tuning while the bone nut maintains perfect string alignment and tension as well as aiding a natural sound and sustain.

Allowing you to plug in and get play live is a quality Fishman Nashville resonator pickup that perfectly captures the distinct tone and characteristics of a resonator guitar.

Authentically Vintage

Made with authentic vintage features, the Gretsch G9231 Bobtail is the perfect instrument for any fan of guitars from yesteryear.

Buy the G9231 Bobtail and get that classic resonator guitar sound and playability thanks to top class Gretsch construction and the Ampli-Sonic resonator.
