Tonewoods and Gretsch’s open-pore finish
The Gretsch G9120 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 G9120’s tone while providing it with understated good looks.
Gretsch legacy in American music
The Gretsch G9120 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.
