Beautifully appointed Gretsch`s G9300 New Yorker Standard mandolin is seriously decked out with tasteful vintage appointments that would look right at home in the company`s catalogs from the `50s.

Gretsch`s legacy in American music The Gretsch G9300 New Yorker Standard Mandolin 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 mandolin, you`re holding more than a great mandolin, you`re holding a piece of American music history.
