Part of their Roots collection, the G9120-SK gives you a chance to own one of Gretsch's earliest instruments. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that they got their start in 1883 as a banjo company? It wasn't long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top guitars, contributing to the very roots of American music. So when you pick up a Gretsch G9120-SK, you're holding more than a great ukulele, you're holding a piece of American music history.
Perfect for a wide range of music, the Gretsch G9120-SK ukelel's tenor body and longer scale makes it one of the most comfortable ukes to play. Its deeper body also gives it excellent projection and richer undertones, making a fit perfectly with the sound of most acoustic guitars. If you're new to this fun and expressive instrument, then the G9120-SK is an excellent choice for you.
To provide the G9120-SK ukelele the warmth and projection of their classic models, Gretsch crafted its top, back, and sides from mahogany. Along with a bone nut and saddle, as well as a real rosewood bridge and fingerboard, the G9120-SK gives you the bright sound you'd expect from a traditional uke.
