    I am looking for a real hollow body short scale bass. The Gretsch (model G5442BDC) seems to fit the bill. There aren't any around for me to play though. Does anyone have this model and could share their opinions on it?

    Thanks. I did a search and already saw the first thread you had a link for. It seemed that most people were talking about other models or the long scale model. It was also almost a 4 year old thread. I believe that since that thread, the basses are now made in Korea. I could be wrong?

    The second thread I have not seen, but it isn't a very long thread.

    Thanks.
