The G9100-L Soprano Long-Neck Ukulele, launched during the 2014 NAMM show, gives players all the space they need for higher-register playing with a 15” scale and a 16-fret concert-size mahogany neck. Other features include a mahogany top, back and sides; rosewood fingerboard and bridge; bone nut and saddle; geared tuning machines; Aquila® Nylagut™ strings; “open-pore” semi-gloss finish and a fitted gig bag.
