What we say:
The Streamliner range is a collection of ultra-affordable Gretsch models that don’t hold back on all the amazing details and styling that make Gretsch such a mesmerising brand! These guitars have specially designed pickups, fully ‘Gretsch’ block fingerboard inlays, cool finishes and a very easy playability to ensure they end up in the hands of gigging players everywhere.
This Streamliner model is the excellent G2420. It’s a single cutaway hollowbody with plenty of style.
This is one good looking guitar: a fantastic trapeze tailpiece sits alongside some serious-looking Broad’Tron pickups, Hump Block inlays and a fantastic Aged Brooklyn Burst finish. Gretsch guitars are as famous for their looks as they are for their sounds and this model does not let the team down!
The Broad’Tron pickups on here are a real success: these humbucking units bring width and depth to your sound whilst still retaining the all-important twang that makes Gretsch guitars sound distinct from other brands.
We love how playable the Streamliner range is in general: 12” radius fingerboards make playing easier and the slightly shorter scale length enhances this.
This guitar is an excellent choice for any player seeking a semi with a cool look, tons of attitude and addictive playability.
The secret to the Streamliner’s sound is a new offering from Gretsch—the Broad’Tron™ BT-2S humbucking pickup. Designed specifically for the Streamliner Collection, the high-output Broad’Tron pickup spawns improved definition with tighter bass response for robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange. This 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. A fast-playing 12”-radius laurel fingerboard with elegant pearloid Hump Block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets sits atop the white-bound nato neck with a thin “U”-shaped profile—ideal for chord work or firing off speedy riffs. Enjoy rock-solid tuning stability courtesy of the stylish Gretsch Chromatic II tailpiece, Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with secured laurel base and synthetic bone nut.
All the classic eye-catching style you’ve come to expect from Gretsch is here—vintage-style black control knobs, enlarged F-holes for increased acoustic projection, elegant aged white binding with upgraded purfling, slick-looking nickel hardware, arched laminated maple construction and three-ply tortoise pickguard. Nearly impossible to put down once you pick it up and start playing, the G2420 is an astounding take on the authentic sound and classic style you’ve come to expect from Gretsch.
