Hi there,
Here we have a brand new Gretsch re-issue G9100 in the gretsch gig bag. Recieved it as a very well intentioned gift, but shoulder issues say no to soprano size ukes...$89 shipped to the lower 48...thanks!!

How does it sound? I haven't really heard anyone do a review on one yet.

Strumed it a couple times out of curiosity and it sounds a lot louder and richer than you would think for a $100 Uke.the build quality is outstanding as well..wish my Kala tenor was as nice!! Quite honestly, I'm going to use this money and save up to buy the tenor version...I was that impressed...

Wish they made them like their vintage ones! But here's a video of some bluegrass style picking on one.

Apparently, its a mahogany laminate construction. Here's a pretty full write up from Sweetwater music.

Good luck w/the sale. It should make someone a great first uke.
