Great Bass

By 

from Houston, Texas

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5123B Electromatic Electric Bass Guitar:

I have always wanted a Gretsch bass. I have always played Fender. I love this bass. It sounds great and always attracts lots of comments when I'm done with a show. A real eye catcher. My only suggestion is if you do end up getting one, purchase a stomp bass equalizer. If you play straight thru the amp, you will get a nasty feed back hum. You can eliminate most of that with the EQ. Other than that, I love this bass.
