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.

This bass looks and feels great unplugged. As soon as you power the pickup you realize it give a hollow unbalanced sound. There are literally dead spots on the fret board where the bass does not pickup the notes and play them at appropriate volume. My Rogue 200 lx plays better for half the price. DO NOT BUY unless you plan on replacing the pickup. Its a shame because the guitar feels amazing.

It's a steal

By Anthony Brown

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

This is a very impressive instrument for such a modest price. Well set up straight out of the box, easy action with no buzzes. The fretwork is extremely well finished, no sharp edges at all. One reasonably powerful pickup and all the circuitry seems fine. I replaced the strings with D'Addario ECB81S Chromes which are light gauge flatwounds and to my ears are a perfect match for the instrument. Bear in mind that I'm a guitar player, not a bassist, but this instrument will fit my recording needs very well.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

Have been in music for about 35 years and this was a great purchase for my sons Christmas present. The playability and tone is very good. The intonation is spot on right out of the box. I highly recomend this guitar to anyone starting out or even to play with in a band on a regular basis.

Nice Short Scale Bass

By Steve Murphy

from Dallas TX

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

Great bass for the price once set-up. I have let other more experienced bass players have a go and they were pleasantly surprised. No more heavy full size basses for me.
Nice quality, decent overall finish. One mini-humbucker has surprisingly nice tone. Easy to play, light weight. Feels like a guitar.
Overall fit and finish quite good. I immediately swaped out the stock strings for Roundsound short scale jazz monel flat wound strings....no comparison. The truss rod and intonation was way off but the action was pre-set fairly well. Once set-up it plays great, so much easier to play than my 35" scale HEAVY LTD.
Got it for a great price from Musicians Friend. Check it out.

GREAT BASS

By vicente Padilla

from californis

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

I went to my local guitar center to look for this bass and they didn't have it. So i ordered it. A few days later it came in and i took it home. I plugged it in and i didn't care for it, but the more i played it the more i liked it. I have a hofner bass so I was just used to a certain sound. I grew to love this bass and have used it to play a many gigs. Great bass, great price.

Best bass for any player

By dominique hall

from Portland Or

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

I got this bass 3 years ago when i was strapped for cash. i traded in my ibanez. and picked this baby up, it had the best action in the whole store! i plugged it into an ampeg and it was on 3. the tv jones pickup in this bass its ridiculous. its louder than any active bass i have played or seen. its very fast, and after i bought it i noticed it was 3/4ths scail, but i kept it and have been playing it ever sense. i now own a ESP D-6 and this bass sounds way better. only problem. the tone wood chosen sounds like complete mud. and you cant go to far out side the basses string gauge range or the strings wont fir in the saddles or tuning holes.

Amazing bass for a great price

By suburbankid93

from Louisville, KY

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

I first went into a guitar center (I'm usually a music go round guy, just checking it out really) looking for a couple of instrument cables and saw this beautiful bass on the wall. After realizing it was a Gretsch and noticing the price, I practically ripped it off of the wall and started playing it. The bass sounded so good that I ended up running back home, grabbing my 1995 special edition Mexican fender p-bass and trading it on the spot that day. This is a fantastic sounding bass that sounds like a much more expensive bass, perfect for those who play guitar normally, and you won't regret the purchase.

A keeper

By Jimmy D

from Portland OR

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2202 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass Guitar:

I am primarily a guitarist, however I started out playing a short scale bass. I have had a couple of long scale basses but found them to be uncomfortable & hard for me to play. This bass is made well, easy to play & sounds great. Very easy for me to make the transition back to bass. I put flat wound strings on it & set it up to my liking. Classic looks, great finish, light weight, comfortable, great price. It's a keeper.
