Gretsch Guitars Folk & Traditional Instruments
With so many timeless favorites to choose from, you're sure to find one to perfectly suit your lifestyle. If you're looking for a fun, relatively easy-to-learn secondary instrument or something portable for campfires and sing-alongs, a ukulele like the Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9100 Soprano Standard Ukulele is a great option. This compact instrument is crafted from laminated mahogany and boasts a 2-piece mahogany neck for great tone. It also features Grover pegs to keep it in tune, even on the go.
If you've got your heart set on a mandolin, however, the Gretsch Guitars G9311 New Yorker Supreme Acoustic-Electric Mandolin offers exceptional performance, beauty and value. It boasts a solid mahogany top, back and sides to deliver a smooth, full tone, and beautiful details like the clamshell tailpiece and pearl dot inlays on the fingerboard are sure to turn heads. It's an especially great secondary instrument for a violinist, because it features identical tuning and similar fingering, not to mention the comparable size.
Someone looking for a classic folk or bluegrass sound, however, can't go wrong with a banjo like the Gretsch Guitars G9451 Dixie Deluxe 5-String Banjo. This striking instrument features a 3-piece maple and walnut neck, 3-ply solid maple rim and a Whyte Laydie tone ring for a quality feel and powerful, timeless sound any banjo enthusiast will love. The nickel-plated hardware, vintage-style tailpiece and gloss finish add stunning beauty, too, so the Dixie Deluxe really is the whole package.
