Gretsch G5440LS Electromatic Hollow Body Long Scale Bass Guitar
The first thing that’s notable about the Gretsch G5440LS Electromatic hollow body long scale bass guitar is how bright and warm it sounds; you can thank the 5-ply maple body and neck for that. The long-scale neck is not only built to feel solid and secure, but it delivers an amazing response that is rich with resonance and depth. The aforementioned resonance is of course only bolstered by the dual f-holes located on the body of this instrument.
While it would be amazing to just own a hollow-body bass that sounded this great and warm when unplugged, Gretsch successfully crosses over to the electric world, thanks to its Black Top Filter’Tron humbucker pickups. These electronics deliver an accurate and detailed response, meaning that you’ll get a strong and clear tone whether you’re noodling up on the highest, most treble-heavy frets or grooving out on some low-end rhythms. Because of how faithful the electronics make this instrument sound, players are able to get the soul of an acoustic instrument with the amplification and power of an electric.
