With over 100 years experience in designing and building exceptional instruments, Gretsch have spared nothing in guaranteeing the G9400 to meet the demanding requirements of professional musicians. The body has been built using sturdy yet supple maple, a highly resonant tonewood that allows the banjo to generate a fantastic energy. A slender yet resilient layer of gloss preserves the natural finish. The body is home to the 3-ply solid maple rim, zinc alloy “MT” style tone ring, single-piece flange, notched steel tension hoop, 11” Remo Renaissance head and 24 brackets. The response from the G9400 is close to perfect. The armrest ensures a comfortable playing position.
Fitted to the body is a mahogany neck with “U” shaped profile, offering a strong and supportive playing support to glide along. Married to the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, complete with new high contrast large snowflake inlays with B&D at the 12th fret. The neck is also finished in gloss to match the body. At the top of the neck, the headstock proudly displays a 1930s Gretsch logo and contains the 2x2 tuning key configuration, with a geared 5th string tuner along the neck.
The G9400 comes with a set of D'Addario J61 nickel strings (gauge .010 - .023) so you are ready to start playing as soon as you get it home.
