    The only thing bad about this guitar is the strings. I will put on flat wounds. The quality of construction is excellent, action is great ,and great finish. I am very happy with the guitar .

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2220 Electromatic Junior Jet II Electric Bass Guitar:

        I started out on an EB-0 45 years ago (actually, earlier, a Framus Strato Star, but the less said about that bass the better). I love (and still have) that Gibson, but I wanted a new short scale bass to hand off to my daughter, a good guitarist with small hands. Played a used Junior Jet at GC, didn't buy it (a bad output jack, also it was the single pickup model). When a two pickup sunburst model turned up in Jersey during a GC used sale, I grabbed it, and have utterly no regrets. It plays great, intonation/setup was flawless, the pickups are fine, and even the strings everyone seems to hate were okay. It's nicer than any Epi or Squier short scale I've played, and at my age... I've played a lot of them. Try one out.

        Heavy and bulky but sounds good

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2220 Electromatic Junior Jet II Electric Bass Guitar:

        I bought this bass for my son. He is an extremely talented 14 years old, and has a collection of 4 bass guitars, so we have something to compare it to. (I'm a professional keyboardist.) It certainly sounds good, seems to have good pick ups, but, it is really quite heavy and quite bulky to hold. There isn't all that much choice in the short scale category so all-in-all, considering it's low price, I certainly can recommend the product, but again, it's not the most comfortable bass to handle.

        What a Boom!

        By Rebecca

        from Chambersburg, PA

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2220 Electromatic Junior Jet II Electric Bass Guitar:

        I have shoulder trouble and needed a bass with a shorter neck and when I saw this one I ordered right away. Boy am I glad I did! Arrived on timely basis and packaged very well. Barely needed any tuning. Sounded great on my small amp when I first plugged it in. I was a little unhappy with the twang it had so I ordered tape wound strings. Fantastic sound! Played it in church Sunday and what a boom. Very well worth the price and then some. I highly recommend it to anyone!

        Gretsch G2220 Electromatic Jet Jr. Short-Scale Bass

        By Doug Grant

        from Muskego, WI

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2220 Electromatic Junior Jet II Electric Bass Guitar:

        I play bass in my church?s contemporary choir, which consists of singers, a pianist, several acoustic guitar players, and a drummer. I had been playing a full-scale electro-acoustic bass, which had many strong points, but it took up a lot of space and required me to concentrate a lot on my fretting hand, which made it more difficult for me to sing while playing. I purchased the short-scale Gretsch G2220, sight unseen, in hopes it would alleviate some of these issues. I?m glad to say that I am very happy with the instrument; its look, sound, and feel are very suitable for my situation. It is comfortable to hold, easy to play, has an ear-pleasing tone, and creates plenty of volume when played through the church?s PA system. Its vintage styling (I got the tobacco sunburst version) is also a plus; a more rock-oriented instrument would look out of place in my setting. Finally, it did not put too big a dent in my bank account. The only downside, if it can be called that, is that there is no ready-made hardshell case available for it. The folks at Guitar Center helped me select a plush-lined gig bag which is working out fine for now. I have seen it said on the Internet that a Les Paul guitar case will fit it, but I haven?t checked that out. Regardless, I would give the Getsch G2220 five out of five stars, because it has given me exactly what I wanted without costing me an arm and a leg.

        Expected Gretsch Quality

        By Chris Peters

        from Richmond, VA

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2220 Electromatic Junior Jet II Electric Bass Guitar:

        This is the second Junior Jet II series guitar I've bought in the last 4 months. I have been to our local GC store many times and it amazes me how many twisted necks I look down (on other brands). When I got both of these in the mail (because our local store doesn't stock these less expensive model Gretsch guitars) everything is perfect. Neck flat, packaged well, etc. Both Junior Jets stay in tune very well. This guitar is well worth the money. Especially if you get it with a coupon! Look no further than here if you're shopping for an inexpensive bass.
