Gretsch G6128B-TV Thunder Jet Bass - 2011
It was 7pm and the rain was pounding on the window of the restaurant; would you like your Gretsch bass to be exceptionally clean Sir? Said the waiter…What? Oh sorry, I was day-dreaming again…Well if you do, here’s a super-clean Gretsch Thunder Jet bass! This is the first one of these I’ve seen and, I’ve gotta say, I’m impressed! It looks great, plays great and most importantly, sounds great! The Japanese Gretsch guitars are always good; I don’t think I’ve come across a bad one yet. This black beast has TV Jones’ Thunder’Tron pickups and they sound delightful; sweet bass tones from the neck pickup, punchy bridge sounds and sweet 'n' smooth in the middle position; and thunderous when you dig-in; lots of cool tones to suit a huge variety of music. The scale length is 30.3”, set-up is great with a set of La Bella Deep Talkin’ bass flat-wound strings and it’s a joy to play. Condition is excellent and it comes with its original hard shell case.
