    I've been wondering if they make basses for a while.
     
  2. Yes, I played one at GC that was really awsome. I didn't see the name but it was a bright orange hollowbody w/ flat wounds. I wish some one knew more about them.:)

    I'm not that blown away by the Japan-made Gretsch's, but some of their old one's from the 60's are really great. There's one at a local studio that has the biggest neck I've ever played and it really makes you play in a dufferent fashion. It's a very interesting playing experience, though it gets a bit fatiguing wrestling that beast. Great sound, though. I always cruise through the Gretsch section on ebay just for fun.
