Product information - GRETSCH G5442BDC Electromatic Hollow Body Shortscale Bass Transparent Red

Hollow-Body-E-Bass with Shortscale-scale length and Filter'Tron Pickups

The Gretsch G5442BDC Electromatic Hollow Body Shortscale Bass Transparent is a handy bass in the typical Gretsch style, delivering buttery smooth playing characteristics and seismic sounds between British invasion and alternative rock.

Hollow-Body-Bass with short scale length

The basis for the extremely sonorous, percussive sound of the G5442BDC bass is the combination of a full-resonance body, whose back, top and sides are made of five-ply laminated maple, and the short 30.25" scale length. In addition, the shortened string length together with the handy standard U-maple neck supports the smooth playing characteristics of the electric bass.

Black Top Filter'Tron pickups and vintage-style hardware

The electrical tone conversion of the Gretsch G5442BDC is done by two Black Top Filter'Tron humbuckers. Accordingly, a particularly deep sound is available at the bass amplifier, which reacts dynamically to the playing style and skilfully captures the character of the hollow-body construction. To adjust the sound, the typical Gretsch 3-way circuit with separate volume controls for each pickup, master volume and general treble control is available. Last but not least, a Gretsch G-Cutout tailpiece, an intonation-safe Adjusto-Matic bridge with rosewood base and tuning-stable die-cast tuners complete the G5442BDC Electromatic Hollow Body Shortscale Bass Transparent Red by Gretsch.
