If you like your vintage foundation with some modern twists, the Gretsch G2420T Streamliner is for you.
The G2420T Streamliner gains its personality from the laminated maple top, back and sides complete with Baldwin-Era Small F-Holes. This delivers an open, resonant tone that allows the electronics of the G2420T to really push the character of the sound to levels you would usually find on much more expensive hardware.
Not only does the body of the G2420T have audible benefits, but thanks to the addition of white binding with black purfling, a matching black pickguard and nickel finished hardware, it also looks beautiful beyond words too. The headstock also plays into this ethos thanks to its late 50s 6120 style and vintage Gretsch logo.
The neck of the Gretsch G2420T is crafted from nato and houses 22, Medium Jumbo frets with pearloid big block inlays that are set into the bound rosewood fingerboard.
To harness all of that character developed by the body, the Gretsch G2420T Streamliner comes loaded with Gretsch Broad'Tron Humbuckers, positioned in the neck and one in the bridge ares. To effectively shape your desired sound, the G2420T gives you volume controls for each pickup alongside a master tone and master volume control. A 3-way toggle switch then gives you the ability to switch between pickups on the fly.
The G2420T Streamliner hollowbody guitar is certainly not lacking in hardware either. That stunning Bigsby B60 bridge works effortlessly alongside the rosewood-block-secured Adjust-o-matic bridge to give you sustain and intonation that will impress even the most discerning of guitarists.
The Gretsch G2420T Streamliner Electric Guitar was built to give you a guitar experience that has no shortfalls. Beauty, power and finesse are all here in impressive amounts. If ever you've wanted to take the plunge into hollowbody guitars, the Gretsch G2420T should definitely be on your radar.

- gretsch 2420T Streamliner
Now, with the Streamliner, they have done very well to build a guitar with the Gretsch name at a very affordable price.
This is a nicely made guitar with flawless finish, out of the box it plays well and is great acoustically for song writing. Having no tone post, it allows the top and back to vibrate freely, but at the expense of feedback at highly amplified volume.
Owning a 6120, I would say out of the box, this is a nice guitar, nicely made and although some hardware is budget, the low price means you can always upgrade if you want to .
Sound is good, not un-Filtertron like, the middle pickup position gives you a nice FT type sound.
It's a nicely made fun guitar, I like the headstock inlay, its nicer than the electromatic and looks more authentic.
This model is inspired by the Streamliner from 1954, I think its a winner and if you fancy a Gretsch then this is good for the price. You may not leave it in the shop!
