Bringing the best of vintage and modern together, the Gretsch G2655 Streamliner Center Block Jr. Electric Guitar is a double cutaway design guitar that not only impresses drastically in the sound department but will look simply stunning as part of any guitar rig.
The body of the Gretsch G2655 Streamliner comprises of laminated maple top, back and sides that work with a spruce centre block to deliver a clear yet complex fundamental tone that can lend itself to a huge variety of styles of music. The centre block takes care of feedback issues that affect hollow body guitars, making the G2655 far more versatile than previous iterations.
The G2655 features a neck crafted from nato complete with a bound laurel fingerboard that plays home to 22 medium-jumbo frets and large pearloid block inlays. Not only does this look amazing but the level of comfort means you can play this guitar for hours with minimal fatigue. Atop the neck is a 50s style headstock complete with vintage Gretsch logo and die-cast tuning machines.
To harness all of that character developed by the body, the Gretsch G2655 Streamliner comes loaded with Gretsch Broad'Tron Humbuckers, positioned in the neck and one in the bridge area. To effectively shape your desired sound, the G2655 gives you volume controls for each pickup alongside a master tone and master volume control. Traditionally you would find a balance between the two pickup volume controls only to have to reset when you need to turn up or down. With the master volume you can now set your individual pickups to the volume you like and then crank it or ease off as necessary, a most welcome addition. The 3-way toggle switch is located conveniently and gives you the ability to switch between pickups on the fly.
The G2655 Streamliner semi-hollow body guitar is certainly not lacking in hardware either. That solid V-stoptail tailpiece 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 G2655 Streamliner Electric Guitar is a truly great all-rounder that leaves you wanting for nothing. If you're in the market for a double-cutaway, semi-hollow guitar, the G2655 will not let you down.
