The G9110-L concert ukulele is given the extended range treatment by Gretsch as part of their updated Roots Collection for 2014. This new model features an increased scale length to the neck - 17" scale length - which greatly improves string sustain and resonance to create a fuller sound, increasing the upper frequency range without sacrificing the unique timbre of the ukulele.
The G9110-L is fitted with a Fishman KULA preamp system, which makes it an ideal instrument for performing musicians or recording artists who require a versatile instrument that can either be miked up and recorded acoustically, or a signal taken directly from the ukulele itself.
Strong design, beautiful body
The G9110-L body is composed solely of laminated mahogany. This gives it excellent resilience in handling changes in temperature and humidity - making it an excellent choice for players who intend to transport this ukulele around a lot. The mahogany contributes significantly to the well-formed tonal character exhibited by the G9110-L, delivering a balanced mid to low-end voice.
The body has been given a light - but robust - coating of open-pore semi-gloss with a honey mahogany stain. This gently accentuates the natural beauty of the tonewood whilst offering protection to keep it in pristine condition for as long as possible.
Extended, comfortable neck
As already mentioned, the neck receives an extension by 2" to give it an overall scale length of 17", giving the strings a greater distance to resonate, build a fuller sound and ring out more clearly. The higher frets give a greater depth of flavour to the already rich and versatile tones produced by the concert ukulele shape. Aged pearloid dots adorn the 19 frets in stylish fashion.
The G9110-L 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.
In line with the high-quality aesthetic of the tonewoods, nickel-plated, open-back geared tuning machines keep the strings fixed firmly in place. A gorgeous rosewood bridge provides an excellent anchor point for the strings, to reinforce their connection to the body.
The Gretsch G9110-L concert ukulele comes with a standard fitted gig bag so that it is well protected when you're on the move.
