Revealed at the 2012 NAMM show, Gretsch goes back in time and reintroduces some historic models in the all new Roots Collection.  From “Ampli-Sonic” resonator guitars, to mandolins, to banjos, to ukeleles, these are all affordable and, most importantly, great sounding instruments.  The Boxcar ($599), Bobtail ($839), and Honey Dipper ($879) resonator guitars (above) feature a 99% pure aluminum hand spun resonator cone for a solid, loud “Ampli-Sonic” tone.  The New Yorker Mandolins come in three trim levels: Standard ($329), Deluxe Acoustic/Electric ($379), and Supreme ($399).  The Supreme features all solid mahogany construction.  The Broadkaster (there’s a legendary name) banjos are styled after the innovative models of the early 20th century and range from $499 to $1,059 for the top 5-string.  The Gretsch Standard Ukeleles are available as the Soprano Standard ($169), Concert Standard ($189), Tenor Standard ($209).  Move up to a solid quartersawn mahogany top with the Gretsch Deluxe Ukuleles and choose from the Concert Deluxe ($439), Tenor Deluxe ($459) and Tenor Cutaway ($365).
