Overview

Gretsch is offering a new Candy Apple Red finish to its G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. lineup.

The exhilarating G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. with Bigsby is designed for three simple things—high gain-friendly performance, slick, easy playability and spectacular style.

The secret to the Streamliner’s sound is twofold—the Broad’Tron humbucking pickup and the spruce center block. Specifically designed 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.

Other fine features include a traditional control layout— neck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup switching, Bigsby-licensed B50 vibrato tailpiece, Adjusto-Matic bridge with anchored base and synthetic bone nut, fast-playing 12 in.-radius rosewood fingerboard with elegant pearloid block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets, and white-bound neck with a thin “U”-shaped profile.

Boasts classic eye-catching style with 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. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. with Bigsby:

    I was set to buy a G5420T but it was twangier than I expected, too much so for me. I tried nearly every hollow and semi-hollow guitar on the wall and bought this. It was set-up like a dream, low action, just right nut, smooth controls. Now this has bit of the Gretsch twang but not a lot. It's voiced more for a midrange focused tone. A nice raunchy tone on the bridge pickup for dominant lead work. The neck pickup tone is to die for, begging for rich thick lead tones, juicy with lots of sustain. The frets are smaller than I prefer but it doesn't really hold me back. And it's a bit neck heavy. Switching to a wider leather strap solved that problem. But the set-up here is extraordinary for a guitar at any price.

    From the moment I picked it up at the store, I didn't want any other guitar I was looking at but this one. From the store, it plays well, looks amazing, and sounds great. There is a little buzz, but it is no problem at all. Even better it is $100 cheaper than the other colors!

      Comments about Gretsch Guitars G2655T Streamliner Center Block Jr. with Bigsby:

      I was looking around at GC Times Square and was initially checking out Fender Strats. As I was about to leave, the Gretsch Streamliner Center Block Jr with Bigsby in cherry red caught my eye. I had never tried a Gretsch before, but, was well aware of their brand and reputation. I sat down with one, plugged it into an Orange amp and tried it out. What I found was a smaller, lighter guitar with a big sound and clear, sharp tone. I first tried using a clear tone and it sounded very sharp with a beautiful, bell like tone in the highs. It also rocked when I used distortion, very reminiscent of Malcom Young of AC/DC. The neck is just the right size and my hands were easily gliding and hitting the pearl inlay frets. The finish is a beautiful cherry red that reminds one of a red automobile of the 1950's, early 1960's. The sound definitely rings of guitars of that era in rock and roll, country and jazz. I actually tried sampling a bit of playing of each, as well as Blues, and was very impressed. It evokes great guitar players such as Chet Atkins, Chuck Berry, George Harrison and Brian Setzer to name a few. This is a beautiful and affordable Gretsch, which Gretsch' traditionally retail for much more than the price of this one. Highly recommend this gorgeous guitar.

        This is an amazing guitar that Gretsch has put out here. Sounds amazing. Tone is amazing. The neck is fast playing. Very comfortable. All I can say is pick one up at Guitar Center and play it! It does not disappoint. But be warned....you will buy it before you leave the store.
