      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5440LS Electromatic Long Scale Hollowbody Bass:

      The G5440LS is a Korean made instrument that was very impressive right out of the box. The craftsmanship is first rate and I found no flaws with mine except for a very slight truss rod adjustment. The tone is massive with a wide range to suit just about any musical style. The look and feel is classic and very comfortable even if you have never picked up a hollowbody before. Overall I am extremely impressed with Gretsch and it's Electromatic series.

        This is the best investment I ever made. Put flatwounds on it or you are wasting money.

        Great tone. Great sound.

        If you love Bill Wyman and the Rolling Stones or just want a different sound pick this bad boy up today.

          I've always wanted a hollowbody bass, and I jumped right on this one because it's a Gretsch. Neddless to say it didn't disappoint, just a joy to play. Invest in a solid amp, and cables to match the greatness of this bass, and to reach maximum potential!
