For the price, the Gretch G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet is an amazing bass. First the down-side... Well, it has a few construction issues, like slightly unevan gaps around the neck joint. I don't know if that means it will have some long-term problems, but I've had this bass for about a year, and it's doing quite well. The sound, for a one-pickup, shortscale bass, it really impressive. That one pickup delivers a serious punch and, with the tone rolled all the way up, it can even get a convincing "My Generation" twang. Rolled back, it can sound very warm and jazzy. Like all shortscale basses, the E-string can be a bit muddy with the tone all the way back, but that has more to do with the nature of short instruments and slack strings than with the design of this instrument. The finish is good -- great in some respects -- though some of the frets were a bit rough at the ends. And it looks good. I really can't think of anything else in its pricepoint that comes close in sound. The Fender Mustang Bass maybe -- but for more than twice the price.

I bought this bass at my local GC along with a acoustic 260 mini half stack, when i got home everything was going great i was loving the look and feel of this bass and then all of a sudden i went to raise the pick up i turned the screwdriver 1 millimeter and the pickup fell into the guitar i took a look at the pickup and the hole on the bottom of the pick up where the spring and screw go was totally stripped i was disappointed by the cheapness of this especially because gretsch is a pretty respectable brand anyway i traded this bass in for a squier full size jazz bass how ever i would recommend getting this bass its has a great look and feel just dont mess around with the pickup!

Amazing Bass

By Aaron

from Manhasset, NY

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

I bought this guitar just yesterday and about 20 minutes later i did a gig with it! People kept coming up to me saying that it sounded really full. Then i plugged it into my home amp, and i was AMAZED! It only has 1 Pickup but gives the highest sound quality available for a bass. Plus, im a smaller person so switching from my regular bass to this shortscale one was great! I definately reccomend this! It's easy to play, and has great sound!

WOW!

By dakinschultz

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

I am a self-taught bass player and ive been playing for close to two years now. This is the second bass ive owned and it is AWESOME! Im a small person who learned to play on a normal 34in neck but when I went shopping i wanted somthing a little more comfortable to me. Both the basses Ive had are shortscale and ive done much research on the differences in neck length vs sound quality. I myself see no difference with this bass compared with most normal scale basses. Great quality sound with unique shape and great playabilty. The pickup is very nice as well. I fully recomend it to lovers of shortscales.

Amazing!!

By T!M

from California

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

This a fantastic bass. The first bass that I've had, and I didn't appreciate it enought until I started playing it my band. Fantastic sound and great action right out of the box. Only problems I had with it was that the little nylon spacer on the G tuning key broke off, so now when I tune the string, it's rough. Other than that, it's perfect.

Rediculously Awsome!!!!!!!!

By ethan

from new york

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

this is my second bass. i havent had it long because i got it for christmas.This is a nasty little shortscale. i first found it in the store and i plugged it into an acoustic b100 amp and fell in love. The single mini humbucker gives off a very clean tone.its very quick and the action is great but its not the best bass for slapping. volume knob is really smooth and so is the tone knob. the short neck is very playable and quick. a uniquely designed bass with great function and amazing playability for a price that wont dig too deep into the wallet. no doubt ill be playing this bass for a long time.

Nothing Else Close in this Price Range

By ...right...

from As If, USA

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

Good set-up and fretwork - straight from the box to the studio. Modern sound. Sensible bridge mount design - tried and true screws, not push-in pegs. The manufacturing focus is obviously on the playability of the neck - exactly where it should be in this price range. Thank-you Gretsch!

Great long lasting bass, YOU WILL NOT BE DISPLEASED!

By MAKE AMENDS

from CINCINNATI OH

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

I bought this bass when i was in 7th grade just because i had been playing the upright bass in school. I bought this bass used and I sat down with it and fell in love right away. You can't go wrong with a Gretsch product. I am now a JUNIOR in highschool with 2 other basses, an Epiphone Thunderbird and a Fender Special Jazz fretless, and I always play this one the most...I love this guitar to death and will keep it forever. If you are considering buying this bass for yourself or for your child....DO IT!! you will not regret your descision.

best bass for the money

By stan dierks

from vancouver wa.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

i was looking for a travel bass and this one is perfect, was very impressed with the action and intonation, I have a couple 1500.00 dollar + basses and this one plays and sounds just as good as they do, best bass for the money, If you're just learning to play bass this one is perfect.

I love this bass

By Robert R

from Oakdale, CA

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

I picked it up in the store, started playing it, and couldn't put it down. I love the action of the small scale neck and the sound is great. The Gretsch pick up is solid and punchy. I've had several bass over a 40 year period and this one is my favorite. It's cool, attractive, dynamic, and fun to play. Instuments at this price don't normally play this well and sound this good.
