1 Tartan Phantom 3 months ago Adding another Gretsch mandolin to the stable... I actually bought this the last week of Feb. 2020, but am just now getting around to adding it to the database. While I have two other Gretsch G9350 Park Avenue mandolins, this is my first venture into the Gretsch A-body models-- this one is a G9320 New Yorker Deluxe.I use the term "bought" loosely, as it was more of a steal than a buy. $100 bucks shipped, and that included over $100 in accessories-- a RoadRunner gig bag, a custom rosewood armrest, a custom rosewood string overtone damper (no grommets!), and a Tone-Gard, which by itself would cost at least $75.00. What is a Tone-Gard, you ask? it's a device that keeps the back of the mandolin off of the body, maximizing volume and reducing tone dampening.I will say that this thing sounds way better than I expected. While it doesn't sound quite as nice as my Gretsch Park Avenue mandos, it is more than adequate for taking to parties, jams, etc.
