    My mistake could be your windfall. This Gretsch bass was a gas to play!. Tone Thump, Deep, Clear. Fast Neck. Then I had the frets pulled to make her fretless and I hate it. the local music shop pulled them and now says they have no time to put 'em back in. I have the frets, along with the HSC and would rather just cut my losses here. She sure is pretty.

    The G5442B Electromatic Hollow Body Short-Scale Bass is a stylishly seismic Gretsch® bass guitar with a comfortably short 30 1/4" scale and armed with two powerful “Black Top” Filter’Tron™ humbucking bass pickups that endow it with an electrifying deep-end voice and sonic identity.

    The double-cutaway hollow and bound body resonates with full bass tone and balance, and features sound post bracing and elegantly bound F Holes. Other features include a maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and hump-block pearloid inlays, three-position pickup switch, classic “G-Arrow" control knobs, rosewood-based four-saddle Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and “G”-cutout tailpiece.

    A couple of quick questions. Shipping?
    Any information on the Epiphone sticker on the back of the headstock and what looks like two holes by the inspection sticker?

    Also could you post a picture of the interior label?

    The Epiphone headstock is a 6 string guitar. I think OP just attached wrong pic.
