Well made instrumentWonderful fit and finish all around. Nothing more to wish for or want. A very solid well made short-scale bass. Nice sealed tuners. Quiet with the passive humbuckers just what I wanted for recording. Plays and sounds great. It is an amazing bargain and I was not looking for one.I am a guitar player who wanted another short-scale bass to lay down some tracks (my first was back in the 70's which i sold) and I read and saw some demos on this. Surprisingly so although a short-scale bass it feels so solid and is tone-ful. As with all instruments you need to choose based on what type of music and your playing style. Originally was going to replace the strings when I got it, but they are quality strings that are fine and sound fine, and I will use them for sometime before I try other strings. I also bought the Fender Short-scale gig bag (BTW - Fender owns Gretsch) to help keep it safe from the start. Pretty decent gig bag that is thicker than others I found.
I bought from Sweetwater because they are like having a helping hand checking the instrument before they ship it out unlike others both online and brick and mortar who just hand you whatever it is in the box, good-luck have a nice day bye. I would not trust getting this bass from anyone else. I could have gotten this bass in numerous local big music stores but it is Sweetwater for me every time and I am always happy with what they send and the personal attention they give to every sale, small and large. Got it super fast too.
