The G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. Double-Cut with Bigsby is an incredible guitar that delivers high gain-friendly performance, easy playability, and stunning style. This sleek music machine stays true to the iconic Gretsch sound that has been a staple of rock 'n' roll since its inception.
Featuring the powerful Broad'Tron BT-2S humbucking pickup and a mahogany center block, the Streamliner produces improved definition and tighter bass response for rich lows, clear highs, and a throaty midrange. The lightweight chambered mahogany center block eliminates unwanted feedback and enhances volume-friendly performance on modern stages. You can shape your sound with the traditional control layout including neck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master tone control, master volume control, and three-way pickup switching.
Enhance your playing with the Bigsby-licensed B50 vibrato tailpiece, while the anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge and synthetic bone nut ensure excellent tuning stability and accurate intonation.
The guitar features a fast-playing 12”-radius laurel fingerboard with elegant pearloid Big Block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets. The white-bound neck has a thin “U”-shaped profile, perfect for chord work and fiery riffing.
In terms of style, the G2655T showcases Gretsch's classic aesthetic. It includes vintage-style black control knobs, enlarged F-holes for improved acoustic projection, elegant aged white binding with upgraded purfling, slick nickel hardware, a three-ply black pickguard, and arched laminated maple construction. The smaller body makes it easy to play while standing out on stage.
