OVERVIEW

That great Gretsch sound in an exclusive finish.

Gretsch is offering a new Candy Apple Red finish to its G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. lineup.

The exhilarating G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. with Bigsby is designed for three simple things—high gain-friendly performance, slick, easy playability and spectacular style.

The secret to the Streamliner’s sound is twofold—the Broad’Tron humbucking pickup and the spruce center block. Specifically designed for the Streamliner, the high-output Broad’Tron 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.

Other fine features include a traditional control layout— neck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup switching, Bigsby-licensed B50 vibrato tailpiece, Adjusto-Matic bridge with anchored base and synthetic bone nut, fast-playing 12 in.-radius rosewood fingerboard with elegant pearloid block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets, and white-bound neck with a thin “U”-shaped profile.

Boasts classic eye-catching style with vintage-style gold 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. Case sold separately.

    HANDS DOWN ONE OF THE BEST GUITARS AT ANY PRICE. FANTASTIC SOUND AND PLAYS BETTER THAN EVEN THE HIGHEST PRICED GIBSON. OF COURSE THAT IS MY OPNION. I OWN SEVERAL GIBSONS AND I CAN SPEAK FROM MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED BY THIS QUALITY MADE INSTRUMENT. GRETSCH GUITARS RULE AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED. AND I HAVE SEVERAL THAT ARE THE SAME HIGH QUALITY GUITARS.

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. with Bigsby:

      I thought I'd add my 2 cents to get more reviews for this newish model. This guitar reminds me of a Epiphone anniversary SG with P90s I had a few years ago. Similar ballsy tone and double cut styling. This one has a bit of Gretsch twang in there but not near what their non-Streamliner pickups have. And that's fine with me as it's more versatile to my mind. The set-up was really good, better than most. The fingerboard has a very smooth finished feel.

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. with Bigsby:

        I played one of these yesterday in a related store, and it sounded good. I tried the Beatles' "She's A Woman" on it through a Vox "emulating" 2x12 amp, and it nailed it pretty well. The neck pickup rhythm part was solid and thick without being muddy, and the bridge pickup was twangy without being shrill, and sustained through all the notes in the Chet Atkins style "George" lead part. Pushed it right out in front like a cornet. I have 4 Gretsch guitars, all ElectroMatic - Red Sparkle Jet, Jet Jr. (P-90), Jet Pro II w/ Bigsby and the recent red w/ gold hardware Duo Jet, and I am happy with all of them - more twang than a Gibson, but fatter than a Fender, the Broad'Tron pickups deliver. Get the Bigsby adjusted properly and let the strings set in with the tuners and it should be OK. Bigsbys have to be set up right to work and stay in tune, but they CAN work well. I suppose seeing Steve Stills a week ago colored my argument, but I'll stand by it!
