I had my Gretsch Electromatic short-scale advertised for sale in the local swap magazine. It was muddy sounding, and just not cutting it through my Fender Bassman 25 or through my SansAmp run into our PA. But then...I got my Aguilar GS112 cab. The Gretsch sounds awesome through this cabinet, even better than my P-bass. It's got a fat bluesy bottom that just rocks for my kind of music...blues, motown, classic rock. The Gretsch ain't for sale any more!
