    I wish there was a new bass in the lineup, just to reaffirm Gretsch makes great basses. Oh well, I love mine and that is all that matters...

    Pretty much just putting different clothing on the same models. Not too much new or different.

    I did like this one though, especially the tortoise shell covers on the pups. (I wish there were more companies making inserts for pickups so you could customize your guitar even more. I've only see a few choices in that. )

    Somewhat disappointed that the 5622 has moved from Super HiloTrons to Broadtrons... I view that as a downgrade.

    The Electromatic Jet models have come a long way!

    I really dig that Tahiti red jet. I think I'd prefer it without the Bigsby, but I still really dig it.

    Nothing really grabbing me. I like the tort n black 5420, but it’s like they left over 2012-2016 necks to get rid of. The blue G5422 is nice.

    We need a mahogany slab Jet. Bring a single coil into the Electromatic fold again, FMIC!

    I'm so glad I got my 5622 when I did.

    Yes. yes, yes !!! All the specs that I'm looking for are there. Even the black walnut fingerboard has prooved to be a very pleasant surprise. If they were to upgrade the tuners, the package would be complete.
