    I first went into a guitar center (I'm usually a music go round guy, just checking it out really) looking for a couple of instrument cables and saw this beautiful bass on the wall. After realizing it was a Gretsch and noticing the price, I practically ripped it off of the wall and started playing it. The bass sounded so good that I ended up running back home, grabbing my 1995 special edition Mexican fender p-bass and trading it on the spot that day. This is a fantastic sounding bass that sounds like a much more expensive bass, perfect for those who play guitar normally, and you won't regret the purchase.

    This bass looks and feels great unplugged. As soon as you power the pickup you realize it give a hollow unbalanced sound. There are literally dead spots on the fret board where the bass does not pickup the notes and play them at appropriate volume. My Rogue 200 lx plays better for half the price. DO NOT BUY unless you plan on replacing the pickup. Its a shame because the guitar feels amazing.

    It's a steal

    By Anthony Brown

    from New York

    This is a very impressive instrument for such a modest price. Well set up straight out of the box, easy action with no buzzes. The fretwork is extremely well finished, no sharp edges at all. One reasonably powerful pickup and all the circuitry seems fine. I replaced the strings with D'Addario ECB81S Chromes which are light gauge flatwounds and to my ears are a perfect match for the instrument. Bear in mind that I'm a guitar player, not a bassist, but this instrument will fit my recording needs very well.

    By MICHAEL HAYWOOD

    from Georgia

    Just rec'd this from MF this morning - I ordered it for my niece - I took it out of the box and coudn't beleive how nice this guitar is - I immediatley plugged it up and tested it out - This is a GREAT guitar -
    I own Fender American Deluxe Strat, American Deluxe Tele , Gibson Les Paul Custom , 335, SG, Gretsch Electomatic , PRS Custom 24 10 Top ,Taylor, Martin and Blueridge Acoustic -
    Sorry for all of that, but I said all that to say this - This is an awesome bass guitar for several reasons - it is light and shaped like a guitar, the neck is, fast similar to a Les Paul - The pickup seems to allow for any tone you wish to get through your amp or stompbox - This guitar plays very well and sounds great -
    Beautiful Guitar, Excellent BUY ! Musicians Freinds is the best - Shipping is always FAST -
    Well built, fast neck - Sounds great - looks great, beautiful guitar
    really good guitar - Unbeleivable now a days to really get a good deal - This is a good deal -
    I would urge anyone wanting to play bass guitar, please try this guitar -
    You just can't beat the price for the quality of this guitar -
    I give this guitar 5 stars - I coudn't be happier - I can't wait to see the look on my niece's face on Christmas this coming weekend -

    Nice Short Scale Bass

    By Steve Murphy

    from Dallas TX

    Great bass for the price once set-up. I have let other more experienced bass players have a go and they were pleasantly surprised. No more heavy full size basses for me.
    Nice quality, decent overall finish. One mini-humbucker has surprisingly nice tone. Easy to play, light weight. Feels like a guitar.
    Overall fit and finish quite good. I immediately swaped out the stock strings for Roundsound short scale jazz monel flat wound strings....no comparison. The truss rod and intonation was way off but the action was pre-set fairly well. Once set-up it plays great, so much easier to play than my 35" scale HEAVY LTD.
    Got it for a great price from Musicians Friend. Check it out.

    Buy it!

    By Fragoso

    from Rio de Janeiro, BR

    If you're looking for a bass on this price range, buy this one. Don't let the one pickup fool you. It has an incredible sound and can be quite versatile. Just buy it already!

    perfect for my needs with home studio tracking

    By TPS Report

    from Cola, SC

    I wanted a bass guitar to use for basic tracking on my home studio setup. I selected the Gretch junior bass because I liked the simple configuration and the smaller scale I hoped would work well when sitting at a chair in front of the computer. The quality was better than I expected. Good range of sound styles by adjusting where your fingers are playing. The small scale makes it easy to work with when sitting at the computer desk. The shorter scale also easier to play for someone like me who is not a regular bass player. Shipped fast.

    Great bass

    By impressed-uIM.p

    from Chattanooga TN

    This is a great bass. I saw it in a local music shop and picked it up, not expecting much. It has REALLY good slap punch, one of the best ive heard. I didn't expect a tiny gretsch bass to sound like that. I compered it to a 4 string warwick rockbass and i have to say I preferred this bass to the warwick. (the warwick had a really thick neck and sounded muddy almost)I just wish they made a bigger one.

    Fits like a glove

    By Gretsch2gether

    from Kentville Nova Scotia Canada

    Just received this black beauty the other day. I was worried by comments of large variations in color from charchole to black. Well mine is great 95 percent black with a hint of grain very nice. it fits like a glove easy t ohandle and very rich dreep lows . Just love it with the tone all the way off . With tonne on sounds lic a Ric such a variety for one pickup. Deeper than my Fender J bass. Great buy .This was not available in canada and only recently available from MF thank you

    Big bottom in a compact package

    By Little Phineas

    from Scranton, PA

    I recently purchased the Junior Jet through MF and am quite delighted. The finish looks great and the black body with white pickguard gives it a classy look. The action right out of the box was quite playable. There is plenty of tonal variation from the single humbucker, which keeps things simple. Bass is not my primary instrument. So when I switch off from keyboard or guitar, the short scale makes the transition easier for me. And my shoulders and back definitely appreciate the lighter weight. The Junior Jet is definitely a keeper for me. Thanks MF !
