The miracle of volume! Whether you play chunk rhythm, fingerstyle, bottleneck or anything else, the all-mahogany G9240 Alligator Biscuit Roundneck resonator guitar with deluxe appointments projects its distinctively swampy tone all the way to the back door of any dancehall. Like all fine Gretsch resonator guitars, the vital feature of the G9240 is the Gretsch "Ampli-Sonic" diaphragm (resonator cone). Hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99-percent pure aluminum, the Ampli-Sonic diaphragm yields an impressive quality and volume of tone.

Little disappointed. B string is always dead (no ring/sustain), even when changing strings. G string has a buzz. Needed to get work on it, the tech guy (not LM employee but guy who LM outsource work) opened the cones and it was full of debris (garbage). Whoever build it, didn’t bother cleaning it out. They also made a mess with glue. Also, the cone was screwed in, over-tight. I expected more, for the price and for the name. It’s beautiful. Pickup works well but sound better micced. I don’t recommend. Now that I am more familiar with playing a resonator, I’m able to tell which one would be better.
