The Gretsch G9470 Clarophone Banjo Ukulele delivers authentic tones that evoke the timbre and tonality of early-20th century models. The combination of vintage styling alongside excellent modern appointments guarantee that the G9470 exceeds the playing demands of today's musicians. Not only that, but every model benefits from Gretsch's experience accumulated over an impressive 130-years, which gives them an undeniable edge when it comes to building exceptional instruments.

Resonant Body

The body has been built using highly resonant maple flat-back resonator, creating a fantastic energy that is infused with maple's inherent brightness. The body is also home to a superb 8" Remo Wetherking head, which is fitted to a round-rod brass tone ring via a 12-bracket design. Not only does the model look great, but also it sounds absolutely fantastic.

The body is also home to the maple/ebony bridge, which provides a seamless connection between the strings and body for effortless sustain, impeccable intonation and spot-on string action.

Comfortable U profile neck

Fitted to the body is a sturdy and reliable maple neck, which has been shaped to the incredibly comfortable vintage "U" profile. Married to the neck is an exquisite maple fingerboard, which is home to 21 frets that are adorned with vintage-style pearloid dot position inlays.

The headstock is fitted with a 1920's Gretsch 2x2 layout, with Grover Sta-Tite die-cast tuning machines carrying out the task of upholding tuning integrity with absolute precision. The plastic string nut carries out the task of maintaining string tension beautifully, so that you can always be assured of a consistent playing feel.

If you're looking for a highly enjoyable instrument to get stuck into, then the Gretsch G9470 Clarophone Banjo Ukulele is a wonderful combination of 2 extremely popular instruments, which gives you the best of both worlds. In a lightweight, portable package, you have the perfect instrument to execute crisp and clean tones on with the utmost finesse. Great fun for players of all levels and abilities.
