Gretsch G9480 Laydie Belle Tenor Banjo

The Gretsch G9480 Laydie Belle 4-String Banjo Amber Maple Gloss is a short-scale Irish Tenor banjo designed for playing traditional music. With a Whyte-Laydie tone ring and three-ply solid Maple rim, the G9480 also comes with special-gauge strings for Irish Tenor tuned GDAE (one octave below a mandolin) so mandolin and fiddle players can add banjo to their tonal palettes. With other string gauges it can also be tuned as a standard tenor (CGDA) or ‘Chicago Tuning’.

Other features include a three-piece Maple/Walnut/Maple neck, 17-fret Rosewood fingerboard with vintage-style B&D inlays, 19” scale, 24 tension brackets with notched hoop, 11” Remo High Crown Renaissance head, vintage-style ‘No Knot’ type tailpiece, 1 3/16” nut, geared die-cast machine heads, Vega-style armrest, nickel-plated hardware and a luxurious amber maple gloss finish.
