The G5442BDC Electromatic Hollow Body Short-Scale Bass is a stylishly seismic Gretsch bass guitar with a comfortably short 30 1/4" scale and armed with two powerful "Black Top " Filter'Tron™ humbucking bass pickups that endow it with an electrifying deep-end voice and sonic identity. The double-cutaway hollow and bound body resonates with full bass tone and balance, and features sound post bracing and elegantly 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.
