Gretsch G9531E Double-0 Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric GuitarGretsch
Rich in voice and style, Gretsch Guitars' Roots Collection Acoustic-Electric Guitars represent a level of design, detail and craftsmanship not seen since days long gone. Inspired by tradition, yet rooted in pure Gretsch sensibility, these instruments speak with voices that harken back to a bygone era of "living room" choruses and prairie melodies.
Dressed to impress, the Roots Collection G9531E Style 3 Double-0 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar model sounds out loud with a big, rich bass that is full and under control. The high-end is very liquid; not too fast and folds into the tone with a nice, decaying bloom that seems to float through the room. This 24.87 in. scale model is constructed of sturdy, laminated mahogany with a solid Sitka spruce top, a mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard. Some of its special appointments include an 1800’s "thin" bridge with solid maple bridge plate, handmade, all-wood early "Arts & Crafts"-era marquetry, unbleached nut with matching "wavy" saddle, and an Appalachia Cloudburst finish.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the authorized refurbisher couldn't find anything wrong with it. No repairs or modifications were made to the guitar - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone. This is a discontinued model. Guitar looks mint. When we received the guitar, we set the action at the 12th fret to 5/64" (bass side) and 4/64" (treble side). Neck is straight and the guitar plays great with this low action set-up! Electronics are in perfect working order. Back of the headstock is stamped "used" and original serial # has been replaced with a new one.
