The G5442BDC Electromatic Hollow Body Short-Scale Bass is a stylishly seismic new Gretsch bass guitar with a comfortably short scale (30 1/4) and armed with two powerful new Black Top Filter'Tron bass pickups that endow it with an electrifying deep-end voice and identity.

Its double-cutaway hollow and bound body resonates with full bass tone and balance, and features sound-post bracing and elegant bound f holes. Other features include a maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and hump-block pearloid inlays, three-position pickup switch, classic G arrow control knobs, rosewood-based four-saddle Adjusto-Matic bridge and G-cutout tailpiece. Available in Black and Red.

Bought this new for a family member and it had tuning issues right off the bat. Brought it back to the god folks at L & M who exchanged it for an identical one. Guess what, similar issues with staying in tune. Our tech said it was a stanard issue with these bases. Get a Fender next time.
