This is the G6128B Thunder Jet bass in the classic gloss black finish. This is a very cool and unique bass with excellent tone and playability. The body is the exact same as a professional series G6128T Duo Jet guitar. It's a heavily chambered mahogany back piece with a 3 ply maple top. This design makes the G6128B very lightweight and yields a very resonant tone. The sound is big, warm and woody, with plenty of punch and deep low end. The bass is well suited for many musical styles and the TV Jones ThunderTron pickup combination offers a really nice variety of tones. The 30.3” scale neck has a great feel with slim taper to it and the action is very even all down the neck. This is a brand new factory first instrument and comes with the deluxe Gretsch hard case, all documentation and the Gretsch Limited lifetime warranty. If you have any questions at all please feel free to give us a call!
Note: This bass ships without the pickguard installed. It's a silver guard with the Gretsch logo in black (it's included in the above photo). We can install it for you at no additional charge but this will modify our return policy. The limited lifetime warranty will of course still be valid.

Why We Love Gretsch
Gretsch has been handcrafting guitars for over 135 years. The unique sound of the Gretsch semi-hollow body guitar has become synonymous with rockabilly music, one of the first styles of rock ‘n roll. Gretsch guitars are a favorite among musicians like Chet Atkins, Brian Setzer and George Harrison. At Cream City Music, we love Gretsch too, which is why we always have a huge selection of new, used and vintage Gretsch guitars in stock.
