Gretsch G9201 Honey Dipper Metal Resonator, Round Neck Overview The Gretsch G9201 Honey Dipper Metal Resonator marks a return to the original resonator designs for Gretsch guitars, and gives you a loud acoustic instrument perfect for delta blues and bluegrass. This guitar has a completely brass body for uniquely pure metallic blues tones, and features an Ampli-Sonic "spider" cone diaphragm to make that tone reach to the very far end of the room. This guitar also includes a "Biscuit" bridge: a maple/ebony disk mounted under the bridge to transfer the string vibrations to the cone underneath for even more resonance. This is a reissue of a 1930s design with a 'long-body' construction and a comfortable vintage 'V' neck profile; it is made to capture the voice of the past generation of blues and ragtime musicians. Its stunning "Shed Roof" finish will give you the authentic look of a hard-working blues musician, and if you're looking for a professional brass-body resonator performance, the Honey Dipper won't disappoint.
