Gretsch Revamps Electromatic Junior Jet Basses

Gretsch will launch revamped versions of their Electromatic range of instruments this month, including the Jet Junior and Jet Junior II basses. Updates to the series include improved pickups, inlays, and more.

Gretsch Electromatic Junior Jet Bass

Both the Junior Jet and Junior Jet II basses feature bolt-on construction with a short 30.3″ scale, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard and 20 medium jumbo frets. Hardware on the basses includes four-saddle bridges, black Gretsch-logo pickguards, synthetic bone nuts, and die-cast tuners.

Gretsch Electromatic Junior Jet II Bass

The real difference between each model is in the pickups, as the II version is loaded with two of Gretsch’s mini dual-coil pickups while its sibling carries only one.

Available in black and tobacco sunburst finishes, the Gretsch Electromatic Junior Jet and Junior Jet II basses will be available this month with street prices around $249.99 and $299.99, respectively.
