1 Andy Marshman 12 months ago Took delivery of a black 2220 Electromatic bass today. Pretty fair price for an instrument of this calibre. I own a variety of basses - Squier, Fender, Hofner, Rickenbacker and now the 2 PUP electromatic bass. I knew exactly what I was getting. My toughest decision was whether to get the single PUP or dual. Not sure, yet - if this will lead to more GAS in the Gretsch world. I have both long and short scale basses and the 2220 suits me perfectly. My personal tone is old school R&B/Soul - Motown and Stax. I find the bridge PUP adds a nasal tone I'm not totally in love with but mixed in just a bit with the neck PUP, I get the tone I'm going for. I find this to be exactly like the Hofner Beatle bass regarding the 2 pickup tones. I'll be reading the various posts here and see what's cooking.
