It makes me quite sad to post this, but I have to let this one go.
The only reason I'm selling this is because I've been diagnosed with a probable onset of osteoarthritis in my hands (I hope that it's not) and the thicker neck of the Gretsch does not agree with my fretting hand. It's similar to a Pono for reference, whereas I prefer the really thin neck of Martins. I hope this can bring the same joy to someone else as it did to me

For sale is a 7 months old Gretsch 9110-SK, which is Gretsch's top of the line model.

Specs:
Handcrafted with all-solid koa top, back and sides
One-piece mahogany neck
16-fret rosewood fingerboard (joins body at 12th fret) and bridge
Vintage-style B&D mother-of-pearl position markers
Bone nut and saddle
Grover® 9NB geared tuning machines
Strings currently fitted are high-G Aquila super nylguts.

The uke produces a wonderful tone and that's why it makes me sad to let it go. I tried tons of ukes at music stores before buying this one and to me this had the sweetest voice.

See below for a sound sample. Here's also a product demo from gretsch if anyone is interested:

The ukulele has been meticulously cared for and is in excellent condition. I'd say as new, but if you look really closely at an angle with the light just right (pic below) you can see faint faint strum marks, but I wouldnt be suprised if they can be buffed off.
Other than that it's in perfect condition, see pics for reference.

As seen below it has some really nice koa, especially the back in my opinion and the fretboard looks really good with the discreet but stylish inlay. The build quality is really top notch, save for one detail: One of the braces is glued at an angle inside the uke - it doesnt affect sound or structural integrity but I want to mention it (I believe in full disclosure, pic below :)).

The uke comes with a quality gigbag, but I've bought a nice hardcase for it and I would prefer to ship it in that for both our sakes ;).

I seriously doubt you can find a nicer solid koa concert for this price!

Asking 180 Euro for the uke, and I'll let the hardcase go for 20 euro (It costed me 50 Euros). So 200 total. This is a steal, I paid 450 for the uke+case.
Buyer pays shipping and I can ship anywhere in the EU or to the US.
Also added a WTT post, see here:

Above is with the hardcase.

Long post but wanted to be as thorough as I could.
Let me know if you have any questions!

Best Regards,
Carl-Michael

Price reduction. 200 euro for the uke, 25 for the case. This is a stellar deal for someone out there, I'd keep it if it agreed with my left hand thumb. If you'd like a great sounding and looking solid koa uke and like a thicker neck profile, then send me a PM :).

180euro and 20euro for the case.

At this price I'm practically giving it away as I want it to be played rather than just hang on my wall. I paid 450euro for the uke and case, so I'm already making a terrible deal for myself here. Lowballers, consider the spirit of aloha.

Total price including shipping would be:
To anywhere in the EU: 264euro
To the UK: 221£
To the US: 302$

I would also consider any trade for a uke with a slim neck profile, to enable someone who couldnt otherwise afford this uke a chance at a solid koa concert:
