The Gretsch G2655T Streamliner Center Block Junior 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 a Bigsby licensed B-50 vibrato gives the G2655T subtle pitch control. The Gretsch G2655T Streamliner Center Block Junior is a wonderful blend of old-school personality and new-age tonal dexterity.
The G2655T Streamliner Center Block Junior 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 G2655T 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 G2655T will look as great onstage as it does hanging up in Sweetwater's Music Store.
Gretsch's G2655T Streamliner Center Block Junior 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.
