    Big disappointment from Gretsch

          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9310 New Yorker Supreme Mandolin:

          I bought this based on other user reviews and what I thought was the good name of Gretsch. I was needing a decent mandolin on a tight budget. I have always thought that the Gretsch name stood for quality (my first drum set was a beautiful set by Gretsch), and therefore thought this choice was a no-brainer, but maybe times have changed. This mando is so bad that I was surprised to the point of being sad. The action was so high out of the box it wasn't playable. Even after I lowered the bridge, the strings were way too high off the fretboard. The strings were stretched so tight when in tune that the sound was muffled and didn't ring out at all, and I swear I think the neck was twisted (as in, tilted to one side). There were also many flaws in the finish, and the underside of the fretboard where it meets the body was just raw, splintery, unfinished wood! I know that no mandolin at this price range is going to be perfect, and that a professional set-up can help any instrument, but there's no way I'm going to invest the money into something this poorly made--nothing can fix a twisted neck. And at this price, I expected better. The entry-level Rogue I tried before this was at least playable--the New Yorker is so bad and such a disappointment that I can't wait to get it out of my house and returned. Maybe I just got a lemon, but quality control has GOT to be better than this, no matter where the instrument is manufactured.

            The warm tone of the all-mahogony body is perfect for a strummer like me. Someone more interested in playing solos should probably look at a different instrument. But if you plan on playing in the rhythm section, this instrument is perfect.

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9310 New Yorker Supreme Mandolin:

            This was my first mandolin purchase and I'm pleased with the look and tone of the instrument.

            I did however have a problem with the fretwork/neck of the first unit that was shipped to me. It had a few high frets and the neck had some irregularity at the joint. These two problems combined caused some fret buzz that was not fixable no matter how much adjusting was done.

            I sent the unit back and received a replacement and checked the frets with a fret level. Sure enough there was improvement but there are still some frets that are higher than others making for some challenges when giving it a thorough set up.

            All in all I find it is a good instrument, however for the money you will likely see some shortcuts in quality like the fretwork. A great purchase for a beginner but if you're looking for an advanced instrument you will need to spend more money.

              Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9310 New Yorker Supreme Mandolin:

              This is my first mandolin, and I fell in love with it right away. It has a very warm tone with a good bit of brightness and punch. An all around very well balanced mandolin compared to others that I have heard, which are usually too bright for my taste. Great for folk and even for some bluegrass. My only complaint is that it took about 4 months to ship... But very well worth the wait. I can see this mandolin lasting me a lifetime or two.

                Comments about Gretsch Guitars G9310 New Yorker Supreme Mandolin:

                I had a chance to try one of the spruce-top models, and was really impressed at the overall quality and sound. Later, I found they were making a mahogany version, so I found one in a music shop, and had to play it for about an hour. The shop must have done some setup on it, because it was smooth playing right off the bat. Not quite as bright sounding as the spruce version, but I love the sound of mahogany instruments, warmer and 'woody-er'. *~Sold!~* After about a year, I'm still happy with it. Was tapped to sit in with a rockabilly group, and wound up performing with them on several gigs. Bought a Dean Markley stick-on transducer, mounted it on the mando, and was amazed at how well this outfit worked on stage, and how sweet this little instrument sounded. I must confess that I did spend some extra time setting up the nut end, but I'm a bit fanatical on that stuff. The intonation is excellent, frets smooth, no sharp edges, a very pretty and well finished instrument for not much money. I have also purchased the Gretsch 6 string ukulele or 'Guilele', and it is also a very first rate item as well. It goes without saying that the strings supplied on many new instruments are marginal, so expect to change them out soon.
