Yes, but not uninhibited

Stefan064, 26.04.2015
The Bobtail is very light and handy. The neck very well playable and not too clunky. I have a Johnson Resonator, where the neck tends towards baseball bat. The guitar is neatly processed, only the varnishing was slashed. The F-holes show inside? On and on the frame there is an extremely rough place. As if the painter had just gone over there once. Does that bother me? Zero But there are certainly people who expect a faultless processing for 550 loops. For me, other things are more important with the guitar, because in two weeks she has with me already the first small scraps on it. Let's get to the really important things. How are sound and feel? Not so easy to answer. Because the guitar comes with 12 strings and a very low string position. One is immediately in Western guitar mode. And it sounds really great. Just like a normal Western, only with the light, tinny midnight and a nice long sustain. So who is it? Play, gets directly from the cardboard a great instrument with a special charm. But do we buy ne resonator? Nee. We buy dat thing to play on it slide. And here comes the problem. With the strings and the strings an absolute Nogo (certainly not if one still down tunings with the open tunings). I wonder, that hardly any one mentioned here. I am a quite good slide player and have 3 more resonators, a labsteel and a whiteborn. But that does not work at all. So 16 he strings on it, adjust neck bend (yes is annoying) and then she sings finally. But clearly, the easy game is over. It loses on highs, the strings go up and the beautiful snap is also something away, but you can finally sliden .. so that the sound remains synonymous. So it is the question of what you want to do with it. Whether as a normal sheet metal with a suuuper playability or rather as a rather stiff resonator, it makes in both directions a good but not outstanding figure. However, it sounds purely acoustically around lengths better than one the resonator of Höfner, which ranked in the same price segment (I had synonymous, but soon sold again). Surprisingly, the tone of cheap Johnson is better than the Gretsch, but the neck is just too bold and processing much too sloppy. So rather Gretsch buy. Add to that the pickup. The sound is really good, but can not capture the typical metal sound so that the resonator at the amp again sounds almost like a commercial Western. If you have a micro, the signals can mix securely and get a super sound. I really like the guitar and will keep it, but I do not understand why you have to get it there, because it is sold as resonator guitar and it is in my opinion with the factory settings not.

Outstanding entry-level Dobro

Werner417, 30.06.2013
After some consideration and comparison, I have decided for the Gretsch G9220 Bobtail Roundneck and this is not regret.
Very good value for money. Processing and quality despite manufacturing in China ok. Only a buzzing noise caused by the PU cable was a challenge but could be eliminated by a mini-cable binder.
The sound sounds absolutely authentic to me, only the pick-up sound reminds only remotely of a dobro. With a suitable microphone also on the stage a riser. I try it now with the Fishman Aura Jerry Douglas.
Despite the triangular neck profile it is surprisingly good to play. Due to the high strings required for slide and bar play, it is quite neat to the 5th Bund.

Conclusion: an excellent tool at a very fair price.
