      Comments about Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9121 Tenor A.C.E. Ukulele:

      I am a first time ukulele player, and after doing some research, settled on this uke. I have had it for a week, have practiced a lot, and love it! I really like it as an acoustic, but the electronics are good too. The built in tuner works great, and the strings stay in tune while playing. I came to find out that strings, especially nylon strings, stretch out, so you do have to tune when playing for long periods of time or letting it sit, but that's normal. Some reviews of other ukes say tuning is a problem - but not with this uke, stays in tune and easy to tune! When I got my uke, there was a slight buzz. After doing some research and finding out the multiple causes of buzz in acoustic string instruments, I was able to locate the buzz and fix it easily. There are guides everywhere on uke tab websites about helping you get rid of buzz, as it is a more common uke problem. So don't sweat the buzz if yours comes with a little! Lastly, this uke is made of some good wood. I was even able to safely screw in some guitar strap buttons and play with a strap! I am loving this uke, and will play it for years to come.

      Lots of buzz

            The electronics sound very good, but the fretboard is not very smooth and there is quite a bit of buzz. This is actually my second one. I returned the first because the buzz was so bad it was virtually unplayable. After tuning, adjusting, and restringing, it still has buzz at certain frets.

                Got this as a gift for my daughter, who has been playing a soprano ukulele for the past year or so. She loves the "extra room" that the tenor gives her. The Fishman pick-up with the built-in tuner is very useable. Mahogany body give a nice, full tone.

                  Comments about Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9121 Tenor A.C.E. Ukulele:

                  This was a purchase that met the need of electric / acoustic ukelele. The tone and sustain are decent for such a low priced ukelele. I have a Martin, solid KOA uke, and other deluxe concert instruments. Only a seriously trained player will be able to justify paying over 2K for another instrument. This little tenor will do just nicely for the intermediate player. This is a nice instrument to take to small shows or on the road. Save your money and buy this instrument and focus on practicing and developing your technique instead of over paying for an instrument that you may never grow into. Overall, this is a solid C- instrument for a serious player and more than adequate for an intermediate player. Beginners will also benefit from the consistent playing that this uke offers for such a reasonable price.

                  This in my third Uke. I'm a Guitar player so the Uke is just for fun. It is made in China but build quality is good nice solid instrument. The electronics are installed good so they don't move or vibrate wile playing. The tuners are just ok they do the job. Stays in tune good. The tone is great "IMO" plugged in it really comes alive.
