Product Description

The miracle of volume! When you play chunk rhythm, finger-style, bottleneck or anything else, the all-mahogany deluxe-appointed Gretsch G9240 Alligator Biscuit Roundneck resonator guitar projects its distinctively swampy tones all the way to the back door of any dance hall. 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.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Gretsch products.

"Gretch G9240 Alligator Biscuit"
Overall: Celebrated turning 60 (surviving till 60), and wanted to celebrate with new type instrument. Have had one for 1 year and 3 months. Was learning the 5 string-banjo- at the same time I was contemplating buying this guitar. Went ahead-and found the guitar-when tuned to (open D) had similarities to Banjo standard tuning. I love the WOOD sound, of this guitar. It is indeed WARM. Mine has pickup internally, and 1/4" input at strap peg, center bottom. I finger pick this guitar more than I slide on it, and -am astonished at the way it plays. It has become my go guitar-anytime I sit down. Pleasureable-especially at this price. I can't believe I waited this long-to branch out a little.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
