      Disappointed

      By dstaudy@hotmail.com

      from Kansas City

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6073 Electrotone Bass:

      I was really disappointed with the electrotone bass, I've seen it online for a long time and I finally played one at my local music store. They look sweet and they feel good to play but man, the sound was utterly lacking. I was playing through an ampeg svt with an 8x10 cab and I was pretty depressed at how not good it sounded. The midrange was decent sounding and the high range wasn't bad, but this thing had no low end. It was really clanky sounding even after I messed with all the knobs on the bass and the amp and the sustain was not that great either. Ironically enough it just sounded really hollow... it's like it was a hollowbody or something. Maybe I had a bad one or maybe they all are just not that great, I don't know for sure. Either way I was looking into buying a new bass and this one was taken off the list right after I played it.
      Not a lot with it
      Well put together

      A Great Bass

      By Gretsch Man

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6073 Electrotone Bass:

      I can't say enough good things about this bass. I bought it as a backup for my vintage Gretsch basses and now I use it as my main gigging bass with my old basses relegated to backups. I love the sounds I can get out of these new TV Jones designed Thundertrons; from Rockabilly, Jazz, Country, Classic Rock or Motown this thing can produce all of the vintage sounds I love and has enough presence to cut through the drums in a noisy hall and be heard. I play mine with flat wounds and through Ampeg amps. This is a well-built bass too, everything is solid and tight, comfortable and well balanced and the action can be easily set low and fast just the way I like it plus, it's very lightweight which will save your back on all night gigs. My favorite feature is being able to individually set the volume on each of the pickups so I can mix exactly the sound I like between the neck and bridge pickups. Visually, this bass is a stunner, I have received compliments on its looks after every gig I've played it on. The look is clearly refernces those beautiful Gretsch Tennessean basses from the 1960's. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that the price is a bit much when you consider that an American made Fender will probably run you half as much but then again, you'll just be playing another Fender instead of being the only kid on the block with that amazing Gretsch sound and the drop-dead good looks you'll get from this fine instrument.

      Rockabilly Baby!

      By Dr. B

      from Hawaii

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6073 Electrotone Bass:

      This bass is well balanced on your shoulder. That means smooth, quick runs especially with the ease of the jumbo frets. The 30.4 scale is especially nice if you don't want to stretch in the lower registers or you have short fingers. The string action is less tense due to the shorter scale and allows for easy bar chording. The finish is superior and the pickups sound great without any tweeking. I have read that the bass is heavy. I don't find that to be true. In fact, it is about 2/3 the weight of my Fender with better action and balance.

      Bass player for Playin With Fire

      By G -String

      from Delmar, NY

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G6073 Electrotone Bass:

      Outstanding bass to play. If you want to play country, Classic rock and roll, Blues, Jazz funk. This bass will turn you on. Thunder tron pick ups are powerful. Add a high quality tube amp, 4 tens and 15 for your cabs. You will smoke the crowd. Buy on you will love it.
