Gretsch G9531E Style 3 Grand Concert Electro-Acoustic, Appalachia Cloudburst
Gretsch G9531E Style 3 Grand Concert Electro-Acoustic, Appalachia Cloudburst Overview.
Rich in voice and style, ROOTS COLLECTION Acoustic 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 with a stunning Rosewood headcap with pearl logo and upgraded pearl inlay design, the G9531E-GCFSR Style 3 Double-0 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.

Absolutely love this guitar, fun to play and great value. Had checked out numerous reviews which were all positive, the guitar is as good as they say
Beautifull and well make guiter.plays really well straight out the box.. Great value...
Very well made guitar. I was looking for a small parlour guitar and did actually return this item, only because it was rather larger than I was looking for, hence the loss of one star. The guitar was set up ready to play with a reasonably low action and good tone. This was my first encounter with a Gretsch acoustic and was favourably impressed.
This guitar attracted me for both the look and the price. It was almost an impulse purchase and I rarely do that. When it arrived I was amazed again for this quality for so little money. It sounds beautiful both with the Fishman pickup and without. The finishing is outstanding. Then the mystery began. I could find no info on the Gretsch website. So I contacted Gretsch. They provided me with a wealth of details but what stood out was that it was a short run, hand made guitar. I feel very lucky to have bought this amazing little acoustic.
