Performer magazine has posted an online review of the Gretsch G9311 New Yorker Supreme A/E Mandolin, calling it a “stunner.”
“The New Yorker Supreme sports a classy sunburst matte finish (what Gretsch calls ‘antique semi-gloss’) and a user-friendly Fishman M300 ‘Nashville’ piezo-ceramic pickup,” notes reviewer Benjamin Ricci. “Purists, fear not! The pickup is remarkably clear and musical, delivering a much more natural acoustic tone when plugged in than you might be used to in the acoustic/electric realm. In our tests, gone were the somewhat shrill highs other A/E instruments can sometimes (frustratingly) ‘feature.’”
The praise continues — from its feature set to playability to affordability.
“In fact, so good is this instrument that we’re stumped to think of anything negative to say about it,” sums up Ricci.
