I love the look of Resonator guitars and I’ve always wanted one, it’s on the nice to have list ready for my big lottery win. If I was going to get a Resonator I’d say the Gretsch G9201 “Honey Dipper” would probably be top of my list now. The guitars below are taken from Gretsch’s Roots Collection.
The mahogany-body Boxcar™ Standard and Bobtail™ Deluxe each come in round-neck and square-neck models, and the round-neck Honey Dipper™ has a nickel-plated brass body. The heart of each richly resounding guitar is the new Gretsch Ampli-Sonic resonator cone, hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99-percent pure aluminum for fantastic volume and sonic projection.
You can check out the full specs of each guitar over on the Gretsch website but check out the demos below for an idea of how each of these fantastic instruments sound.
Check out this demo of the Gretsch® G9210 Boxcar™ Square Neck Resonator Guitar to see how you can use these Resonators as lap slide style guitars:
