"Brave new sound" is the tagline of the Gretsch Streamliner collection, and if you're looking for some of the latest creations to come out of the Gretsch workshops, you've come to the right place. This series was newly introduced in 2016, and it promises to deliver that brave new sound without breaking the bank. Like all Gretsch guitars, they're stylish instruments that look amazing on the stage - and as great as they look, they sound even better. They're available in a handful of designs, including Center Block, Center Block Jr., and full-sized hollowbody, so no matter how you like your Gretsch, there's a Streamliner here for you.
At the heart of the Streamliner's tone is one of the latest developments from Gretsch: the Broad'Tron humbucking pickup. It was designed specifically for this guitar, with a high-output configuration that goes from beefy lows to clear highs with a pronounced midrange. The result is bold, unique tone, with great blending characteristics - making for a guitar the whole band will appreciate. Combining that pickup's performance with vintage-style Gretsch design cues brought from the 1940s, '50s and '60s makes the Streamliner series an impressive fusion of vintage and new.
Choosing the best Gretsch Streamliner model for you is as easy as picking out the right combination of features on the body variant you prefer. For example, if you want a Center Block version featuring a Bigsby tremolo, check out the Gretsch Guitars G2622T Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway with Bigsby. Prefer to go full-size with a fixed bridge? Then the Gretsch Guitars G2420 Streamliner Single Cutaway Hollowbody is for you.
There's no wrong choice in the Gretsch Streamliner family - it's all about finding the guitar that's the perfect fit for your personal tastes and playing style. No matter which one you choose, all of these guitars make one thing obvious: that Gretsch is still at the top of their game, with new creations that bring all the best styling cues from their vintage lineup, together with the perfect revisions to take their performance to the next level. If you're ready to get on board with that, then you're ready for a Gretsch Streamliner.
