A High-gain Gretsch That Won't Break the Bank
The Gretsch G2655 Streamliner Center Block Jr. double-cutaway semi-hollowbody electric guitar was built for players looking for an affordable guitar that blends the identifiable Gretsch sound with high-gain rock tones. Two high-output, custom-wound Broad'Tron humbucking pickups effortlessly push amplifiers into overdrive, while the spruce center block in the body resists feedback at loud volumes. And an anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge with V-Stoptail keeps your tuning locked down tight. The Gretsch G2655 Streamliner Center Block Jr. is a wonderful blend of old-school personality and new-age tonal dexterity.
Classic Gretsch appearance
The G2655 Streamliner Center Block Jr. sticks close to what has made Gretsch guitars look so desirable over the years. A pair of F-holes divulges the guitar's semi-hollowbody construction, with a thinline body that is very comfortable to play for longer gigs. The G2655 is also decorated with vintage-vibed, 2-ply white and black binding that wraps the entire instrument. And the chrome hardware and pearloid block inlays ensure the G2655 will look as great onstage as it does hanging up in Sweetwater's Music Store.
Vintage and modern tones
The G2655 Streamliner Center Block Jr. uses vintage-style construction and a modern electronics package to deliver tones that will fit equally well with a low-wattage rockabilly band as it will through a high-gain amp stack. The semi-hollow design adds warmth and clarity to the guitar's tone. But make no mistake: when cranked, the high-output, custom-wound Broad'Tron humbucking pickups are engineered to deliver screaming rock and fusion tones. Feedback is kept nicely under control via the body's spruce center block.
Built with the player in mind
Gretsch's G2655 Streamliner Center Block Jr. plays and feels every bit as good as it sounds. Its Thin U neck profile is round enough that chording remains comfortable in all positions, while being thin enough to facilitate fleet-fingered single-note runs. The thinline, double-cutaway construction is comfortable against your body, and it gives you unimpeded access to the guitar's highest frets. And the controls have even been thoughtfully laid out to not interfere with your picking hand technique.
