OVERVIEW

High gain-friendly performance, easy playability and spectacular style.

The exhilarating G2655T Streamliner Center Block Junior Double Cutaway is designed for three simple things: high gain-friendly performance, slick, easy playability and spectacular style. A sleek music machine, the G2655T cranks out the hits with updated features while staying true to That Great Gretsch Sound! thats been a vital component of rock n' roll since its inception.

The secret to the Streamliners sound is two-fold: the BroadTron humbucking pickup and the spruce center block. Specifically designed by the expert engineers at Gretsch for the Streamliner, the high-output BroadTron pickup spawns robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange for a unique tone that blends well with other instruments in a band context. A lightweight spruce center block runs the length of the body, reinforcing the top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance on modern stages.

The Streamliners sonic power is harnessed and shaped by the traditional control layout, neck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup switching. Add some shimmer and expression to your playing with the Bigsby-licensed B50 vibrato tailpiece while the Adjusto-matic bridge with anchored base and synthetic bone nut grant astounding tuning stability and accurate, slip-free intonation. A fast-playing 12-radius rosewood fingerboard with elegant pearloid block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets sits atop the white-bound neck with a thin U-shaped profileideal for chord work or fiery riffing.

All the classic eye-catching style youve come to expect from Gretsch is here: vintage-style black control knobs, F Holes, elegant two-ply white and black body binding, slick-looking nickel hardware, single-ply black pickguard with Gretsch logo and arched laminated maple construction. Easy to play while rocking out thanks to its smaller body, G2655T Streamliner Center Block Junior Double Cutaway with Bigsby is a phenomenal instrument for the modern musician who wants to control the stage and the audience while standing out from the pack.

Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2655T Streamliner Center Block Junior Double Cutaway with Bigsby:

This guitar is absolutely wonderful, and for the price, it's a total steal. I took this into my local guitar shop for a set up and the tech said (completely unprompted) that he's amazed by the price/value ratio of these new Streamliners. So, take it from a pro: this guitar is absolutely as good as many in the 800-1,000 buck range.

I purchased the G2655T in black during the Cyber Monday sale. Pictures are below-- I removed the pick guard just based on personal preference. The intonation was almost perfect right out of the box. It's a gorgeous instrument. Unique and striking, yet totally classic.

The body is the perfect size, slightly larger than a Les Paul style guitar but smaller than the usual Gretsch behemoths. The neck is incredibly fast with even the most complicated chords becoming noticeably easier to fret. I'm not a shredder whatsoever, but the ease of playing is really remarkable. You even get some extra speed from the G2556T's small/medium frets. It's excellent for both rhythm and leads.

My only (slight) complaint is that the Bisgby tremolo system makes the guitar a little difficult to restring. You can get the hang of it pretty quickly, but it's always going to be more work than restringing your average Tele/Strat/whatever. That said, the Bigsby is great for adding some "shimmer" to your chords while keeping the strings in tune.

Overall, this is an A+, 5-star guitar. I don't think you can go wrong here.

      I really like the slightly smaller size. I grew-up with acoustics (fine ones at that) and had a Gretsch Chet Atkins about 48 years ago. I recently tuned back into electric. This guitar looks, sounds, feels great. There is one major problem.... my other 3 guitars are getting lonely!

              I grabbed-up a black version of this, and she is a beauty!! What a warm, sweet, crunchy, twangy little semi-hollowbody this turned out to be. I absolutely love it. And...it is an exceptional guitar for the price. The smaller size, and double cut-away make it a blast to play, while retaining that deep-dynamite Gretsch tone!!! Get one!!

                Been looking for a hollow body for awhile but didn't like how big they felt considering a lot of the playing i do is sitting down. This guitar is perfect. And while the sound isn't "pure gretsch" it sounds incredible. The golddust color is beautiful in person. Pics don't do it justice.

                I bought this guitar a few weeks ago and I couldn't be happier. The sound is fantastic! This electronics are solid. I purchased the Gold Dust style and the picture does not do it justice. It is a beautiful looking instrument. This is a great value for the money. There is a little minor fret buzz, but other than that, I love it.
