You'll love the Gretsch G9555 New Yorker Archtop guitar. The original New Yorker was an insanely popular instrument in Gretsch's 1950s lineup — and now it's back! Play it and experience that classic, distinctive tonality you can only get from a classic grand auditorium archtop guitar. This beautiful instrument has an arched solid spruce top, laminated maple sides and arched back, a custom wound vintage-style single-coil pickup, a vintage-style V-profile mahogany neck with a padauk fingerboard, a compensated ebony bridge with trapeze tailpiece, and nickel hardware. Its comfortable playability and beautiful tone are accented by its gorgeous vintage styling — you won't believe quality like this can be so affordable. The Gretsch G9555 New Yorker Standard Archtop — to play it is to love it!

The Gretsch New Yorker Archtop was a shining jewel in the company's 1950's guitar lineup. Now, this beloved model is back and better than ever — giving you the full-bodied tone, smooth playability, and eye-catching looks that you'd expect from Gretsch. Take it from the guitarists at Sweetwater: the Gretsch G9555 New Yorker Archtop is dripping with tasty vintage vibe.

Gretsch's G9555 New Yorker Standard Archtop is seriously decked out with tasteful vintage appointments that would look right at home in the company's catalogs from the '50s. With the G9555, you get a lovely arched solid spruce top graced with a vintage 2-tone sunburst finish, that not only looks great — it enhances the instrument's tone. Another vintage-inspired touch is the trapeze tailpiece. They just don't build 'em like this anymore. Oh, wait a minute — Gretsch does!

The Gretsch G9555 New Yorker Standard Archtop transports you back to Gretsch's roots in American music. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that got their start in 1883 as a banjo company? It wasn't long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top guitars, contributing to the very roots of American music. So when you pick up a Gretsch guitar, you're holding more than a great guitar, you're holding a piece of American music history.
