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 ‘Junior’ model Gretsch has a scaled-down body but retains all of that signature Gretsch charm! This guitar follows a popular current trend of major manufacturers offering downsized semi acoustic guitars. This makes them more portable and perhaps easier to handle.
It may be worth noting that this is most definitely a full-sized instrument: the scale length of the neck is 24.75” so this is not a 3/4 size guitar or anything like it, it is just a guitar with a smaller body.
In the case of this Gretsch, there is plenty to like. High output humbuckers and a solid centre block through the middle of the guitar mean that the G2655T Streamliner can handle high gain sounds as well as any guitar, despite the f-holes!
Gretsch have kept stylish details like Block inlays and a teardrop pickguard, fitting it all elegantly on the smaller-sized body. This model is finished in Fairlane Blue and features a licensed Bigsby tremolo bridge.
The Gretsch G2655T gives you a concentrated dose of Gretsch swagger and playability in a pint-sized package that is sure to impress.
The secret to the Streamliner’s sound is twofold—the Broad’Tron™ BT-2S humbucking pickup and the spruce center block. 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. 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 Streamliner’s 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 anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and synthetic bone nut grant astounding tuning stability and accurate, slip-free intonation.
A fast-playing 12”-radius laurel fingerboard with elegant pearloid Big Block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets sits atop the white-bound neck with a thin “U”-shaped profile—ideal for chord work or fiery riffing.
