What Haworth Guitars say:

The Gretsch G5442BDC Electromatic Hollow Body Short-Scale Bass Guitar with rosewood fingerboard is a fantastic Electromatic Hollowbody Bass model by Gretsch.

At Haworth Guitars we love this Gretsch G5442BDC Electromatic Bass Guitar's easy-to-play shorter scale length, comfortable maple neck, 22 medium jumbo frets, lightweight maple archtop hollowbody, adjustomatic bridge and powerful Blacktop Filtertron humbucker bass pickups.


What Gretsch has to say:

The G5442BDC 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 resonate 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.

Available in Black and Red.
