Opinions on Gretsch Junior Jet II?
Hi, first post here (but long time bassist..).
I've been thinking about getting myself a new bass this year but times have been difficult and i don't have a lot of money to put into it. I've been fairly interested in the Gretsch G2220 Junior Jet II. I do realise it's a shorter scale and has only 20 frets but this isn't much an issue for me as i can scarcely recall the times when i wanted to go down further than well, the 19th or 20th fret actually. I think this bass is pretty beautiful looking in it's simplicity (particularly the black one) and it happens to be cheap...
Basically i'd like to know who here owns one or has tried one and what did they think of it. It bears mentioning I tend to favor a clear punchy sound over deep bassy kind.
Also, if anyone has a better recommendation in the price range (i wouldn't really go higher than 400$ right now) then i'm all ears (though i am known to be aesthetically hard to please :-p). I haven't shopped for basses in many years so i'm rather out of the loop
Honestly, if money is tight, and you already have a bass or two at home, I'd hang on to the 400 bucks. Need vs want is a vicious battle, but common sense says save your money. Those import Gretch basses are ok for the money, certainly nothing special, but unless you actually *need* it, I'd pass.
