Gretsch Bobtail Round-Neck Acoustic-Electric Resonator


Tone amplified! With its deluxe appointments and Fishman® Nashville pickup, the Bobtail Round-Neck stands out in the mix in more ways than one. The vital feature of all Gretsch resonator guitars is the all-new Gretsch "Ampli-Sonic" diaphragm (resonator cone), which is hand-spun in Eastern Europe from nearly 99 percent pure aluminium and yields an impressive quality and volume of tone. Optional gig bag available (#099-6481-000).
