          Comments about Gretsch Guitars G5442BDC Electromatic Short Scale Hollowbody Bass:

          I absolutely love this bass. I'm not a big guy and don't have very large hands as well as having fingers that have been weakened over the years from multiple broken bones which made my long scale bass very painful to play after a while. This short scale bass really makes it a dream to play again, has a fantastic tone, and is just awesome fun to play. I love those Black Top pickups too!
