With a sparkling good-time sound and feel the Gretsch G9470 Clarophone Banjo-Uke displays solid modern craftsmanship while authentically evoking the company's innovative banjo models of the early 20th century. Sized like a concert ukulele, the Clarophone Banjo-Uke, or banjolele, is the perfect travelling companion for the banjo enthusiast and is commonly tuned GCEA ("C Tuning") or ADF#B ("D Tuning"), with a re-entrant 4th string. It has a maple plywood rim and resonator for increased volume. The hard maple neck and fingerboard has pearloid position markers for precise fingering. This Clarophone Banjo-Uke is a splendid Southern surfeit of outstanding sound, performance and value for established artist, seasoned player and eager student alike.
Gretsch is proud to take players on a musical journey through nearly a century of great Gretsch history by introducing its Roots Collection of acoustic instruments. This exciting family of banjos, mandolins, resonator guitars, ukuleles and Rancher acoustic guitars feature classically authentic Gretsch designs that transport players to a bygone era well before the company made its acclaimed 1950s entry into the electric guitar world.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars Root Series G9470 Clarophone Banjo-Uke:
I've had this banjolele for about 6 months now, and it's an absolute beauty! Aside from the fact that it is aesthetically adorable, it pacts an IMPRESSIVE tonal punch! The resonator takes your volume to a new level and jamming with a full band becomes a reality for a ukulele player. My only complaint is that the action is a little high. I think I'm going to need to either get the truss rod adjusted or have the nut filed down a little. Regardless, this ukulele exceeded my expectation of a banjo ukulele and I'm overjoyed to add it to my collection.
