Tone Amplified! With its deluxe appointments and Fishman® Nashville pickup, the Bobtail Square-Neck stand out in the mix in more ways than one. The vital feature of all Gretsch resonator guitars is the all-new Grestch “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.

A good looking well made instrument with a great tone.

Graham P. - 9/10/2020

This square neck resonator sounds and looks fantastic. It's well made and finished, keeps its tuning well, and has a lovely tone, good intonation, and excellent volume. I'd recommend it.
