Overview

Revitalizing the best elements from the past, the G2622 Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway bursts into the modern music era with updated sound and style. Brash and feedback-resistant, the sleek G2622 is designed for the guitarist who demands more than the mundane from an instrument: more performance, more style and most importantly, more volume while retaining all you expect from a Gretsch.

The secret to the Streamliners sound is two-fold: the BroadTron humbucking pickup and the spruce center block. Specifically designed by the expert engineers at Gretsch for the Streamliner, the high-output BroadTron 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 rocking 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. 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 profileideal for chord work or fiery riffing. Enjoy rock-solid tuning stability courtesy of the stylish Gretsch V stoptail tailpiece, Adjusto-matic bridge with an anchored base and synthetic bone nut.

All the classic eye-catching style youve come to expect from Gretsch is here: vintage-style gold control knobs, F holes, elegant two-ply white and black body binding, slick-looking nickel hardware, single-ply black pickguard with Gretsch logo and arched laminated maple construction.

Nearly impossible to put down once you pick it up and start playing, G2622 Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway is an updated version of the authentic sound and classic style that has earned Gretsch accolades since the dawn of rock n' roll.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2622 Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway:

    I've played acoustic guitar for over 40 years, but finally decided I needed to move into a new genre. Knowing absolutely nothing about electric guitars, I spent some considerable time reading and trying out various instruments. I wanted something I could feel comfortable with, both in sound and playability, and that also addressed my musical backgound and interests, primarily early '50s-'60s rockabilly, R'n'R, Scotty Moore/James Burton/Eddie Cochran stuff. I just kept coming back to this 2622. When I saw the price it really clinched the deal. Sound, finish, comfort... everything was just right. It was good straight out of the box, but I had it set up anyway. My guitar tech (not a GC guy) said there was hardly anything to do: a small neck adjustment and light intonation work. This is a great guitar to start out with, and one I expect I will keep for the rest of my life. Absolutely NO disappointments! Highly recommend!

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2622 Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway:

      I am a finger picker and very selective on the types of guitars I play in order to capture both low and high tones in the Semi-Hollows with enough volume to not get drowned out by percussion as well as finding the right model to also rock out on, needless to say the right guitar is always a long process. I searched for quite a while and played about every model under $500 narrowing it to an Epiphone ES 335 and WildKat as well as a used Riviera and a Ibanez AMV10...I was about to settle on the 335 when I noticed the Gretsch G2622 Steamliner that had just come in, I plugged in in played a few licks and knew within about 15 seconds this was the one I had been waiting for. I couldn't believe it was under $500, it easily plays like something that costs twice that much or more. the size is perfect, the fit and finish is pleasing and spectacular and just blew away the competition. All my tones are picked up and if I want to really shred it can easily do that without compromise or reverb. I am very impressed with the Gretsch pickups they are easily better than the lower end humbuckers on the Epiphones. The neck glides perfectly and the guitar is just right there as you play without any effort. Plug one in and you'll be amazed, I never right reviews so it obviously impressed me and I am very pleased.

        Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2622 Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway:

        The Gretsch is the most recent addition to my guitar collection including a Gibson J45, Fender HSS Strat, Cordoba C5CE, and Taylor Big Baby. Of these guitars NOTHING sounds better plugged in than the Gretsch 2622. I have a 68' reissue Fender Deluxe Reverb 22W tube and I don't run pedals so I keep it very old school, the Gretsch is far cleaner than the Strat and the pick up variations are spot on. Very clean and classic tone, which even if you run pedals is best to start with. I purchased the guitar without tremolo because playing the 2622 and the 2622T side by side, IMO the 2622 w/ no trem had much better sustain and fuller sound. I searched far and wide for a semi hollow body, and money was not a determining factor. I looked at high ends like Gibsons and all the lower end players including epiphone and ibanes, however, NOTHING even those that dwarfed the price of the Gretsch gave me the same feel. The Gretsch 2622 is truly dialed in. I highly recommend this guitar. If you don't believe me, just check out the other 5 star reviews all over the web. This thing absolutely SMOKES any of its competitors in similar price ranges, and is hard to tell apart from the higher end semis. They are going fast so grab one while you can!

        Since Retirement ....I have decided to take the guitar playing to the next level..... I have my masterbilt
        DR 500MCE acoustic , but wanted A semi-hollow electric....
        After much research , and reading reviews , came across the Streamliner series..... So decided
        to go to G.C. to try one out The g-2622....I was amazed at Looks, feel, and sound-- Playing it through a Vox VT40x Amp. This guitar has a sound all of its own......Some pretty awesome pick ups...
        I can see the price of these guitar going up after they catch on...So hurry-- You wont be dissapointed
