Short and Sweet.

By Daniel McLoud

from OKC OK

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5123B Electromatic Electric Bass Guitar:

The long and the short of it is Gretsch did well on this less expensive model of their semi-hollow body basses. While still being very well made! It has a wonderful warm tone, and is pretty easy to play on. If you can get your hands on one sit for a min and just play on it you'l find that you can't go wrong w/purchase.

First Bass

By Ben Jablon

from Maryland

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5123B Electromatic Electric Bass Guitar:

As this was my first bass and I didn't know much about the instrument, I chose it based on looks. The bass looks great in pictures and even better in person. I didn't realize it at the time but this bass does not have the best sound for someone who is looking to play classic rock type songs/riffs. Pros: -Great Look -Unique Sound Cons: -Sound does not change very much with different amp settings (might be hard to understand) -Bulky (for me at least, as I'm like 5'6") -Thick Body (because its hollow) Final Thoughts: Before you decide to buy this bass PLEASE take your time in deciding the style of music you wish to play with it.
