Ever play a Gretsch Electromatic bass?

    I did a search, but couldn't find too much about them.
    What do you know about them? I'm thinking in terms of getting it just as a 'couch' bass. One I can have kicking around the living room. A practice bass.
    I realize it's short-scale, but I'm curious if they've got any nuts at all.
    Hmmm?

    If that's the single-pickup, single cutaway style, I played one a while back. I'd liken it to a slightly sturdier Danelectro. It's cheap, but has a fairly solid tone. I'd recommend it for a knock-around bass.
