Gretch Boxcar Square Neck Resonator (G9210)

Gretch Boxcar Square Neck Resonator (G9210)

I certainly didn't need another resonator guitar when I saw this sitting on the counter at The Fingerboard Extension in Corvallis. I was actually eyeing a cheap Lap Steel which was next to it when it caught my eye. I'm a sucker for dark mahogany for sure but one strum of this thing and I was hooked. The sound is incredable. The richest most resonant sound I have ever heard, especially from a low priced guitar made in China. I already had my Regal resonator which cost about the same and sounded nice, but this was in a whole other league.

Needless to say I bought and currently play this more than any other instrument. I still waiver between bottle neck and lap style. This being a square neck can only be played lap style. I kept the Regal resonator to play bottle neck style. I've been playing this one in open D. The sound really moves me deep inside. I hope I can get good at it and can keep playing for many years to come.
