Description

Details

The Gretsch G2220 Electromatic Junior Jet II Short-Scale Bass Guitar is a cool and comfortable gig-ready instrument that is perfect for players who prefer a shorter reach, and a punchier output. The clean lines and single-cutaway establish an easy playability, whilst the tonal delivery belies the diminuitive size of this bass. Whatever your skill level, and whatever you play, the G2220 Electromatic Junior Jet II is perfect for any and every occasion.

Smooth neck design

Joined to the body of the Gretsch G2220 Junior Jet Bass II is a short-scale (30.3-inches) maple neck. The beauty of this design is a focused and punchy attack, with an accommodating feel for those who prefer a shorter reach, and younger players. The D-shape profile presents a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand, whilst the single-cutaway body profile allows the fretting hand to reach the highest frets with ease. Married to body is an exquisite black walnut fingerboard, which is home to 20 medium-jumbo frets with pearloid dot position inlays to guide you. The 12-inch fingerboard radius offers a flatter playing platform for laying down flawless technique on.

Comfortable single-cutaway body

The body is built using lightweight basswood, which enhances the comfortability of the G2220. Whether you prefer to wear it high or sling it low, the G2220 is a joy to perform with. Basswood also boasts an impressive tonal palette, producing an articulate mid-range energy with presence in the low-end and subtle upper mids without over-emphasising high-end treble. The result is a well-rounded and dynamic tonal range to exploit.

Gretsch mini-humbuckers

Fitted to the body of the G2220 Junior Jet II are a pair of Gretsch Mini-Humbucking pickups, which are perfect for translating the wide variety of tones available to you. By deftly attenuating the three-position pickup selector switch along with the master volume and tone controls, this little dynamo deliver anything from a saturated low-end rumble to a defined upper mid attack. Whether you're laying down smooth grooves or chugging along with gusto, the G2220 is the perfect performance partner.

Gig-ready hardware

The chrome hardware guarantees a clean look and complements the sleek finish beautifully. The combination of four-saddle bridge and die-cast tuning machines works harmoniously to optimise intonation and sustain, whilst upholding tuning integrity with precision. The Gretsch logo adorns the headstock - and is also featured on the pickguard – to add a touch of class to the design. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, someone looking for a more compact performance partner or seeking a bass with the tonal versatility to cross genres with ease, then the Gretsch G2220 Junior Jet Bass II is the perfect choice.
