The new G9126-ACE (acoustic cutaway electric) from Gretsch is the performance version of the incredibly popular G9126 guitar-ukulele, perfect for reliable studio recording and as a reliable touring instrument.
The laminated mahogany back and sides create a resoundingly robust tone. The laminate ensures that the mahogany copes well with changes in humidity and temperature, making it a perfect instrument for taking on tour. The top is crafted from solid quartersawn mahogany, reinforcing the tonal stability and creating a reliably solid feel to the G9126.
The body features a thin layer of open-pore, semi-gloss honey mahogany stain, which gives it further protection from the elements, unwanted scratches, and adds to its eye-catching finish.
The medium "C" profile, single-piece mahogany neck provides a reassuringly supportive feel. The attached rosewood fretboard is a delight to play along, with subtly designed mother of pearl "diamond snowflakes" position inlays that guide your way along the fingerboard in style. Finally, the ornate mother of pearl headstock inlay completes the high attention-to-detail with regard to finishing touches.
The six string setup is tuned from A to A in standard guitar intervals, making it ideal for extended-range ukulele arrangements, an accompanying instrument as part of an ensemble or a uniquely-voiced solo piece. Grover Sta-Tite tuning machines ensure that whatever tuning to elect to use, it remains steadfast throughout each and every performance. The bone nut, saddle and rosewood bring all work together to create a reliable partnership that maintains string action and height with ease.
The G9126-ACE is fitted with a Fishman KULA preamp with a built-in chromatic tuner. The KULA is been designed specifically for the size, shape and sound of the ukulele. The onboard 3-band EQ allows you to sculpt the bass, middle and treble output to suit your environment or personal preference.
The Gretsch G9126 guitar ukulele comes with a deluxe fitted gig bag so that it is well protected when you're on the move.
