The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Gretsch G9230 ‘Bobtail’ Resonator


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Gretsch Bobtail, G9230 – originally called the ‘Bobtail Deluxe’ –  is part of a recently re-introduced affordable acoustic and resonator guitar line, the Roots Collection. It features all mahogany soundwell-type body and neck with a bound Padauk fingerboard, and a dark cherry sunburst finish. The resonator cover is chromed, with Gretsch Ampli-Sonic logo over a spider resonator bridge support. Open gears and traditional style tailpiece complete the vintage look.

The 12-fret neck puts the saddle closer to the center of vibrating area of the body, producing more of both tone and volume. And it looks very cool! The pearlescent headplate is a very nice touch.

This model is available in both round and square neck versions.

As a bonus, The Fishman Nashville pickup system is factory installed. The Nashville is a split, under-saddle piezo pickup that goes directly to the output jack. It is a passive, battery-free system. Output is lower than active systems but it is still usable without a preamp, though a preamp is recommended for impedance matching and tone shaping.

The Fishman Nashville system is the pickup developed specifically for use with the Fishman Jerry Douglas Aura pedal, which has 16 of Jerry’s custom “Reso-voices” on board.
