Short-scale Tone Machine

Do you want a bass, but don't want the big stretches between frets? The new short-scale Gretsch Junior Jet Bass II is the instrument for you. It doesn't matter whether you have small hands, or if this bass is for a young beginner, or even if you are a guitar player looking for an easier playing bass, the Jet Bass II has you covered. The 30.3" scale length keeps wide stretches to a minimum. The basswood body and maple neck combine for a warm and detailed sound. If you want big bass tone and a short-scale length, the Gretsch Junior Jet Bass II is for you!

Gretsch Junior Jet Bass II Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic Gretsch looks will turn heads
  • Constructed for tone and comfort
  • Shorter scale neck is easier to play
Classic Gretsch looks will turn heads

This short-scale bass is sure to make musicians take a second look. The classic Gretsch Electromatic headstock on the Gretsch Junior Jet Bass II is instantly recognizable. The familiar Jet body shape is comfortable to play and light weight. You'll love not only the looks, but the feel of the Gretsch Junior Jet Bass II!

Constructed for tone and comfort

You'll love the feel and comfort of the Gretsch Junior Jet Bass II. The lightweight basswood body provides warm, full tone without breaking your back. The strong maple neck and toneful rosewood fretboard combine to give you an easy playing bass with warm, clean notes that will sing while you play.

Shorter scale neck is easier to play

The Gretsch Junior Jet Bass II scale length has a lot of advantages, especially if you like bending and a little more trebly, throaty sound. A shorter scale also lets you do things you can't do on your 34-inch bass (at least, that you can't do as easily), like effortless leaps of six frets without changing position, which makes this bass perfect for fast playing. But it's the tone you'll really love.

Gretsch Junior Jet Bass II Guitar Features:
  • Short-scale bass with big tone
  • Color: Tobacco Sunburst
  • Mini humbuckers provide a deep, organic bass sound
  • 30.3" scale length is perfect for smaller hands and fast fretwork
  • Rosewood fretboard has a 12" radius, flatter for faster playability
  • Basswood body is lightweight and comfortable to wear
Add a great-playing short-scale bass to your collection with the Gretsch Junior Jet Bass II!
