OVERVIEW

Gretsch is famous for guitars and drums, but were also known as one of the best manufacturers of ukuleles. The Gretsch G9120 Tenor Standard Ukulele marks the return of ukuleles to the Gretsch family. It features a laminated mahogany, tenor-sized body and 2-pc mahogany neck for excellent tone. The tenor has a larger body than a concert ukulele, having more volume and deeper bass tone. The easy-to-play Rosewood fingerboard has 19 frets with dot inlays and Grover Sta-Tite to keep notes in tune. The G9120 comes complete with a padded gig bag.

Gretsch is proud to take players on a musical journey through nearly a century of great Gretsch history by introducing its Roots Collection of acoustic instruments. This exciting family of banjos, mandolins, resonator guitars, ukuleles and Rancher acoustic guitars feature classically authentic Gretsch designs that transport players to a bygone era well before the company made its acclaimed 1950s entry into the electric guitar world.

A larger ukulele with a laminated mahogany body and Grover tuners.

          I'm new to playing, so I had a friend (guitar player) help me. We did a blind comparison and both chose the Gretsch 9120. I love the size of the tenor; it's so much easier to play than a soprano. The color is rich looking and the construction is quality.

            Play guitar but am thinking of using ukulele's to teach kids at local K - 6th grade charter school. For the money, this instrument is phenomenal. Sounds good, stays in tune, fretboard is very good and is very attractive. I will be buying more for the kids to use.

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9120 Tenor Standard Ukulele:

            The nut is too low and the saddle is too high. Fret heights appear even but i haven't actually tried a straight edge on them. With the saddle as high as it is, there is no fret buzz, but fingering at the lower part of the fret board does change change pitch.

            A Really Sweet Uke!

            About Me Experienced

            Comments about Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9120 Tenor Standard Ukulele:

            I started playing a ukelele when I was 10 years old, about 60 years ago, and I moved up through guitars for 60 years, a 6 decade love affair with the instrument. But this ukelele brought me full circle, back where I began. I have found fingerstyle guitar rather easily transposed back to ukelele and have played this beauty til my fingers hurt. It is so much fun it is scary. This Gretsche is a perfect size and well made, with a sweet sound. I am in heaven.

              I needed to lower the action a tad right out of the box and since I prefer a lower "G" string I found I needed to widen the string slit in the bridge to fit the wound string. Then, bliss.
              It came equipped with Nylgut strings. I'll definitely stay with them, they sound great.
