Outstanding Tenor Acoustic-electric Ukulele from Gretsch

Gretsch Guitars brings their luthier mastery to the world of ukuleles with the G9121 Tenor acoustic-electric ukulele with a cutaway. Featuring a solid quartersawn mahogany top and laminated mahogany body with an ovangkol fingerboard, this beautifully designed uke delivers great tone and feel. An ovangkol bridge and genuine bone nut and saddle provide even more resonance and tone support. With a long, 17-inch scale and a cutaway, you have even more fretted fun to play with — a feature uke enthusiasts here at Sweetwater really appreciate. And when you are ready to plug in, the G9121 has a Fishman Kula preamp onboard for stellar amplified tone.

Tonewoods and Gretsch’s open-pore finish

The Gretsch G9121 ukulele’s organically warm tone comes courtesy of its mahogany top, back, and sides. The mahogany neck and ovangkol fingerboard are an ideal combination for optimizing the transfer of energy from the strings to the body, for a deep and rich sound. Gretsch’s natural open-pore semi-gloss finish enhances the G9121’s tone while providing it with understated good looks.

Gretsch legacy in American music

The Gretsch G9121 ukulele transports you back to Gretsch’s roots in American music. 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 ukulele, you’re holding more than a great uke; you’re holding a piece of American music history.
