Short-scale basses are more popular than ever before, favoured by countless artists for their compact, accessible playability but with the same huge sound. The Electromatic Junior Jet Bass is Gretsch's take on this popular formula, boasting punchy retro sounds and classy looks to match - plus an attractive price tag to boot!
Gretsch have opted for understated aesthetics for the Junior Jet bass, but with a distinctly retro twang. Soft curves, sharp chrome hardware and their iconic logo all paint a unique picture that's undeniably Gretsch.
A basswood body and maple neck provide a balanced, clear sound that'll work wonders with the tight short-scale sound. The walnut fingerboard will give ultra smooth playability - plus the mini bass humbuckers and 3-position toggle switch give you a brilliantly broad tonal palette without any hassle!
