Nice, but not a 5 star purchase

By Michael

from PA

I purchased this ukulele online from Guitar Center a few months ago, I wanted to wait a bit so avoid using just an initial impression. The first uke that arrived was obviously a demo model pulled from one of the stores, scratch marks from someone apparently using a pick! Be advised I purchased a new unblemished uke! As this was not satisfactory I called and the customer service was great, they sent out a replacement immediately. The next one to arrive appeared to be brand new and un-played, however, the cosmetics left much to be desired. Although the neck and headstock were terrific, the neck to body joint showed a lot of excess glue on the soundboard! Also, the sides of the uke showed defects (deep scratches) that were simply varnished over. Very poor quality control in my opinion. Also, the stain used is a bit bright for my liking, but, others may disagree. Now, I'll save the possitives for last, the sound plugged and unplugged is great, I did not return this unit as I felt cosmetics aside it was a decent value. I did expect more from Gretsch on the esthetics but I think for what was paid I am satisfied, just let the buyer beware when purchasing online. I would not hesitate to buy from Guitar Center again, however, I will not order anything online, I would highly suggest you go to the store and check it firsthand if at all possible.

Gretsch Tenor Electric

By Randolph Scott

from Worlington, UK

I currently own two ukes before this one, a soprano and a baritone. I chose this tenor for the look, the Gretsch name, the Fishman name, the cutaway and the build quality I knew that I would get. I was not disappointed at all in any aspect. The fit and finish is well done, the tone is very nice acoustically and electrically. It works well with both my tube anp and my solid state amp. I'm quite happy not only with the instrument, the gig bag that came with it, but also how Guitar Center handled my purchase and correctly used USPS Priority Mail to ship it to my military mail box. Many vendors ignore this requirement and things get shipped in the bottom of a boat and take 45-60 days to get to me. GC did it right and earned more of my business that other online vendors have lost by not meeting my needs. Overall, a quite pleasant experience by both the manufacturer and the vendor.

A blast to play!

By Brian Orourke

from Delray Beach, Florida

I'm a 20+ year guitar player and this is my first uke. I chose the Gretsch because of the Fishman electronics and Grover tuners. This thing is an absolute blast to play! The action was great straight out of the box and the included case is a nice bonus. The built-in tuner works great and confirms that the uke stays in tune extremely well. It sounds fantastic unplugged and also sounds great when I plug it into my PA. I definitely recommend this uke.
