Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9126-A.C.E. Guitar Acoustic-Electric Ukulele with Gig Bag:

I had ordered a NEW guitar/ukulele and when it arrived at the store the gig bag had a broken zipper and the guitar/uke had signs that it was not factory new. Be aware that ANY piece of electronics that has batteries will ALWAYS have a separator between the batteries and the contacts to prevent accidental discharge. Also, the strings had obviously been replaced as whoever put them on did not even trim the excess. When someone buys NEW you expect factory cherry. GC did take this back and order a NEW one. WE will see when the next one comes in. The sound of the one sent was good, but it's a reasonable expectation to get what you pay for. NEW does not mean someone has used your product before you get it!

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9126-A.C.E. Guitar Acoustic-Electric Ukulele with Gig Bag:

I purchased this as a way to extend the range of notes beyond a 4 string Ukulele while maintaining the sound quality of a Ukulele. While playing on the top four strings it does come across as a standard Ukulele and bringing in the lower two strings adds a nice dimension to the music.
Acoustically the volume is poor and does not compete well with guitars during a jam. The tonal quality is what you would expect for an instrument in this price range.
Amplified with the built in Fishman pickup is much more satisfying. Sound quality is very even across the strings and it holds up to aggressive finger picking or flat picking.
Nice looking gig bag.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9126-A.C.E. Guitar Acoustic-Electric Ukulele with Gig Bag:

    You better get your fret files out because they left razors on each side of the neck and expect small frets they need to put a baritone neck on it for a longer scale
