Gretsch G9240 "Alligator" Biscuit Roundneck
Guitar made in China, and Chinese quality I feel that it is no longer what it was! What we could spit on the Japanese equipment there 30/40 years, and finally Japan became a reference. China is she taking the same turn? In short: it being very good!
The neck is a 19 fret profile V. Then the V when I grip it made me a little scared, and finally it is super nice and the guitar stands much better.


This handle is therefore a pleasure for me, profile V may seem confusing but we made it fine. The matt varnish just hangs it takes the grip was really instant. It is neither too light nor too heavy, anyway this is a guitar that plays rather sit, so it is not a really important point.
Access to acute is bad, but this is not what you asked.


The sound is fabulous. It's dirty, it's ultra metal is very poitu and seems to have been made for one thing: the silde.
BUT, I tested over the fingerpicking folk, pop (the Beatles even), the big riff rock n roll that spot, folk / punk etc ... and finally with a little imagination can close it all is this little thing.


The story comencé like this: I pass in a mag instrument with electrical Lady to watch for it. And then we just both big crush on this beautiful dobro chocolate color mat hung in a corner. As a big deceitful I just try 3 days after ... I wanted something like 4 hours before returning to the store and leave with. Big thunderbolt!
I believe that in fact this is the first dobro I tried something like 25 years of skyscrapers, there's may be better, but how to be reasonable and look aillor when you just fall in love?
Here is a very nice instrument, very enjoyable to play and opens the doors for me to a whole new world of sounds. I paid € 425 this beautiful thing, is not much in the end for a good quality instrument. I have not finished loving me Gretsch

Resonator guitar of "biscuit" type, see all the features on the site Gretsch:
A note is a handle V. No problem keeping agreement, and the instrument is finished (externally anyway ... see end of review)


A small adjustment period is necessary when only electrical elsewhere (my case). The neck is a little thick / wide. Otherwise, no worries, the guitar is well balanced. Access to acute is not easier, but it is not necessarily what is asked.


Perfect for blues a little cracra ... I spent two hours in a store trying different models in the same price range (fender, johnson ..), it was clearly the most typical. Difficult to describe exactly what it takes (I say it sounded more midrange, a little more metal), but this is the type of sound I was looking for investing in this kind of guitar. The others seemed bland side.
For cons, the strumming is clearly not his cup of tea ...


No complaints regarding appearance or sound. A flat anyway, 2-3 months after purchase, a rather ugly vibration appeared playing certain notes (without systematic otherwise it would be unplayable). As if something was loose in the resonator. I do not think that much, I'm just waiting to change the strings to open the beast.
So I put 6 on the overall review.
