The new tenor-size G9126 guitar ukulele from Gretsch is a gorgeous instrument that has the potential to broaden tonal options both live and in the studio.
The back and sides of the G9126 are made from laminated mahogany, which delivers a robust and driven 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 stunning 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 "snowflake" 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 Gretsch G9126 guitar ukulele comes with a deluxe fitted gig bag so that it is well protected when you're on the move.
