Gretsch adds two guitars to its classic-design Roots Collection series.

The Winter NAMM 2014 will see the release of two new Gretsch guitars that will transport you to a bygone era well before rock 'n’ roll blasted off in the 1950's.

First off we have the return of the 1950's Gretsch New Yorker archtop guitar with the following specs:

  • Arched Solid Spruce Top with Laminated Maple Back and Sides
  • Parallel Tone Bars bracing
  • Oversize Gretsch “F”-Holes
  • Mahogany vintage “V” shaped neck
  • Rosewood fretboard with 19 vintage-style frets (14 to body), 9.45" (240mm) radius and pearloid dot inlays
  • Scale Length: 25"
  • Nut Width: 1.75" (44.45 mm)
  • Finish : Semi-Gloss Vintage Sunburst
  • Rosewood bridge
  • Grover Sta-Tite Die-Cast tuning machines
  • Tortoiseshell pickguard

Gretsch will also introduce a new Jim Dandy Flat Top, namely the G9515, which is faithful to the “Rex” parlor guitars produced by the brand in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s.

Its specs are:

  • Agathis non-cutaway body
  • X bracing
  • Screened white purfling and aged white binding
  • 3.44" diameter soundhole
  • “C” shape nato neck
  • Rosewood fretboard with 18 vintage-style frets (12 to body) and pearloid Dot inlays
  • Nut Width: 1.6875" (42.8 mm)
  • Scale Length: 24"
  • Single-ply white pickguad with “G” graphic
  • Nickel-plated hardware
  • Open-Back Geared tuning machines
  • Finish: Semi-Gloss Coral Sunburst Top
