This Bass Is What Industrial Metal Needs

By The Lost Underground

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6073 Electrotone Bass:

When You Look At This Bass You Think Its Like Any Other Bass, Well From 2003 On Tim Skold Of "Marilyn Manson" Uses This Bass And If You Like Manson's Music Than You Can Clearly Here How Good This Bass Sounds In There Live Shows I Roars But Yet Still Has A Sort Of Beauty To Its Pulse Jumping Sounds.

awsome....

By BaSs FrEaK

from Orange County, CA

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6073 Electrotone Bass:

This bass is pretty cool, it has awsome sound, it wont flake out on u thats for sure. The only thing is is that it weighs a ton. I use the BC Rich mockingbird and sometimes the Gibson Thunderbird (i must hav a thing for birds, lol). Those bass guitars r already heavy but this thing is no joke. Professional usage only, and maybe intermediate. And yes, Tim Skold is the bomb. Y did Twiggy have to leave?!

sweet hollowbody!

By PAUL DOUGLASS

from Texas

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6073 Electrotone Bass:

Other guys reviewing this have no idea what they are talking about Tim Skold plays a broadkaster and this bass is super light as to be expected from a hollow body. The tone is superb as it should be for the price. My finish and set up was flawless straight from the box. Neck feels great and the short scale makes it easy to play. Has a nice growl with some round wounds has a great classic thump with a set of flat wounds, think Paul McCartney or Justin Medal-Johnson. Great bass if you are looking for a hollowbody but not right for every application. Play in a country band and a punk band and I would never bring this to a punk show. I have had this bass for about 6 months and played a ton of gigs with it and have had no problems.

Comfort /sound and great looks

By Joseph Maiale

from Reseda, California

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6073 Electrotone Bass:

One reviewer stated that the Bass is heavy..Not true, as compared to my Jazz and Warwicks ( especially).The range of sounds is incredible, it can get that wooden sound and be replicated at a decent volume. Everyone compliments the bass on its looks, I agree. It also has that something that sets it apart from other standard basses. It can be played with a pick ( sounds amazing) and fingers. The difference in all the sounds make it like you have at least four different basses. But it can bottom out most amps. I uses a Genz Benz w 2x12 and it sounds great.
