The exhilarating G2655 Streamlinerâ¢ Center Block Jr. Double-Cut with V-Stoptail is designed for three simple thingsâhigh gain-friendly performance, slick, easy playability and spectacular style. A sleek music machine, the G2655 cranks out the hits with updated features while staying true to That Great Gretsch Sound!â¢ thatâs been a vital component of rock ânâ roll since its inception.
The secret to the Streamlinerâs sound is twofoldâthe BroadâTronâ¢ BT-2S humbucking pickup and the spruce center block. Designed specifically for the Streamliner Collection, the high-output BroadâTron 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 undesirable feedback for volume-friendly performance on modern stages. The Streamlinerâs sonic power is harnessed and shaped by the traditional control layoutâneck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup switching. A fast-playing 12â-radius laurel fingerboard with elegant pearloid Big Block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets sits atop the white-bound nato neck with a thin âUâ-shaped profileâideal for chord work or fiery riffing. Enjoy rock-solid tuning stability courtesy of the stylish Gretsch V-Stoptail tailpiece, anchored Adjusto-Maticâ¢ bridge and synthetic bone nut.
All the classic eye-catching style youâve come to expect from Gretsch is hereâvintage-style black control knobs, enlarged F-holes for acoustic projection, elegant aged white binding with upgraded purfling, slick-looking nickel hardware, three-ply tortoise pickguard and arched laminated maple construction. Easy to play while rocking out thanks to its smaller body, the G2655 is a phenomenal instrument for the modern musician who wants to control the stage and the audience while standing out from the pack.
