The Gretsch G2655T Streamliner Centre-Block Junior Double-Cutaway Electric Guitar with Bigsby, is a sophisticated model that boasts some highly impressive features, and carries a generously affordable price tag. The guitar’s unique design means that it is perfect for those who want a no-nonsense model that is perfect for high gain musical styles, and compact in size to make it exceptionally comfortable to play. As you’d expect from the team at Gretsch, this is a workhorse that is perfect for beginners and gigging pros alike.
Sleek Body Profile
The body is crafted using laminated maple, a highly resonant tonewood that produces a brilliant high-end energy. The laminate also gives the wood greater resilience with regard to changes in temperature and humidity, making the G2655T a fantastic model for touring with. A lightweight spruce centre block runs along the length of the body internally, which helps to reinforce the body top, whilst suppressing unwanted feedback when you’re performing high-gain musical styles. The vintage aesthetic of the G2655T Streamliner is reinforced by the elegant two-ply white and black body binding to emphasise the sultry curves of this model. Further protection is afforded to the finish thanks to a layer of gloss.
Sturdy and Responsive Nato Neck
Fitted to the body is a reassuringly solid nato neck, which is shaped with a thin “U” profile for increased playing comfort. Paired with the neck is a 22 medium fret rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with pearloid block inlays to guide your way in style. The fingerboard is shaped with 12-inch radius, guaranteeing that string bends are executed smoothly, whilst your fingers are given a luxurious playground to explore. The double-cutaway body profile enables greater access to the upper frets, giving you total command of the neck and fingerboard.
Versatile Broad’Tron Humbuckers
The energy produced in the body is harnessed and translated beautifully by the Broad’Tron humbucking pickups. This high-output partnership delivers lows with a thunderous roar, mids with a weighty punch, and highs with a ringing clarity. Whatever style of music you play; the Streamliner is as adaptable as your playing style demands.
Control comes in the form of independent volume controls for each pickup, a master volume pot, and a master tone pot. There is a three-way pickup selector switch that allows you to select either pickup individually, or both simultaneously. In keeping with the vintage finishing touches, black vintage-style control knobs are on hand for smooth and precise control over your tone.
Heavenly Vibrato Control
The exceptional playability and control afforded by the G2655T wouldn’t be quite the same without the anchored adjusto-matic bridge and Bigsby-Licensed B50 tailpiece partnership. String action adjustment is simple thanks to the bridge, and you can rest assured that tuning stability, intonation and sustain is upheld dutifully thanks the combined effort of the bridge and synthetic bone nut. The Bigsby-Licensed B50 tailpiece is a joy to work with, responding gracefully and returning to its original position quickly.
The headstock – along with the single-ply black pickguard – proudly bears the gold Gretsch logo, whilst die-cast nickel tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with unwavering accuracy during the most energetic of performances.
