Gretsch G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar w/ BigsbyGretsch
The exhilarating G2655 Streamliner Center Block Junior Double Cutaway is designed for three simple things—high 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!™ that’s been a vital component of rock ‘n’ roll since its inception.
The secret to the Streamliner’s sound is twofold—the Broad’Tron humbucking pickup and the spruce center block. Specifically designed by the expert engineers at Gretsch for the Streamliner, the high-output Broad’Tron pickup spawns robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange for a unique tone that blends well with other instruments in a band context. A lightweight spruce center block runs the length of the body, reinforcing the top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance on modern stages.
The Streamliner’s sonic power is harnessed and shaped by the traditional control layout—neck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup switching. Add some shimmer and expression to your playing with the Bigsby®-licensed B50 vibrato tailpiece while the Adjusto-matic™ bridge with anchored base and synthetic bone nut grant astounding tuning stability and accurate, slip-free intonation. A fast-playing 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard with elegant pearloid block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets sits atop the white-bound neck with a thin “U”-shaped profile—ideal for chord work or fiery riffing.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the only issue found by the authorized refurbisher was a minor lacquer crease on the back of the body, which runs straight across from side to side about 2" below the heel joint (does not show up in photos). No repairs or modifications were made to the guitar - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone. Aside from the minor lacquer crease, the guitar looks mint. Action at the 12th fret is currently set to 3/64" on both the bass and treble sides. Neck is straight and the guitar plays great with this low-action set-up! Bigsby and all electronics are in perfect working order. Back of the headstock is stamped "used" and original serial # has been replaced with a new one.
