Gretsch’s legacy in American music
The Gretsch G9220 standard resonator guitar transports you back to Gretsch’s roots in American music. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but many don’t know they got their start in 1883 as a banjo company. It wasn’t long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top guitars, contributing to the very roots of American music. So when you pick up a Gretsch resonator, you’re holding more than a great resonator, you’re holding a piece of American music history.
