Sporting classic Gretsch accoutrements, the Gretsch G2220 Electromatic Junior Jet Bass II Short-Scale Bass is easily capable of filling a room with massive subsonic tones. Its key features include a 30.3" scale length for comfortable playability, a basswood body, bolt-on maple neck and a 12"-radius black walnut fingerboard with 20 medium-jumbo frets and dot inlays. A pair of Gretsch single-coil bass pickups deliver thundering sound, which can be fully commanded with a three-position pickup toggle switch, master volume and master tone. This versatile bass is also equipped with a four-saddle adjustable bridge, synthetic bone nut and die-cast tuners for secure tuning. The G2220 is perfect for players of all skill levels looking for a flexible, short-scale bass.

Player-Friendly 30.3" Scale Length

With its 30.3" scale length, the G2220 is designed for comfortable playability. The short scale length reduces the space between frets, making it easier to traverse the fingerboard and suitable for players with smaller hands. This allows for fast, articulate fretwork and fluid playing across all 20 medium-jumbo frets.

Thundering Gretsch Single-Coil Bass Pickups

The G2220 features a pair of Gretsch single-coil bass pickups that provide a deep, organic bass tone. These pickups capture the warm, punchy sounds Gretsch basses are known for. A three-position toggle switch lets you choose between the bridge pickup, neck pickup or both pickups together for a range of tones from bright and cutting to full and rounded.

Quality Components for Solid Performance

From its basswood body and bolt-on maple neck to its 12"-radius black walnut fingerboard, the G2220 is made from premium materials that provide a solid foundation for playing. It also features a synthetic bone nut, four-saddle adjustable bridge and die-cast tuners for accurate intonation and tuning stability.

Classic Gretsch Style

With its iconic G-arrow control knobs, gold-plated hardware and hump-block fingerboard inlays, the G2220 exudes classic Gretsch style. Its black finish and white pickguard with the Gretsch logo complete the vintage-inspired look.
