    I am very interested in both of these basses, and both fit what I am looking for...

    I have read reviews on here for both basses, but I am curious if anyone has experience with both the Allen Woody and the Gretsch Junior Jet?

    Has anyone played both of these, and might be able to provide a little comparisons to the sounds and weight of the instruments...

    I play mostly rhythm bass as opposed to lead or fusion style madness, so I am looking for something with a nice sound to add to the band, but I don't really need to be ripping off solos...jsut a nice powerful low end bass...maybe a little slap too:)
  2. I play an Allen Woody and love it. I actually find it to be pretty versatile. It's my primary live instrument. I played a P Bass for years but my back couldn't handle it any more.

    The Gretsch is alot cheaper.

    Just sayin
  5. I have the Gretsch. I had been playing long scale for 10+ years, having previous short scale time w/ an EB0 and a Fender Bullet. Was in a used gear store trying Ps and Js and a few others, nothing too fancy, wasn't planning on purchasing anything...spotted the lil' Gretsch. I liked the sorta-retro look so I gave it a spin. I was surprised to find that it sounded better than any of the other basses I played, so much so that I plunked down the $180 and bought it (I must have caught the short scale u-I now own an Eastwood Classic 4 and a Univox 'Lectra.) The one time I got my hands an an Epi Allen Woody I didn't like it quite as much as I though I would. Maybe I played a not-so-great one. I much preferred the Hofner CT that I compaerd it too.
