Gretsch Guitars

Description

The Gretsch G2627T Streamliner is a vintage guitar in a modern instrument. Brash and feedback-resistant thanks to its  center block design, this G2627T Streamliner pays tribute to the past  with the  Bigsby  B70 vibrato tailpiece and  Cateye  f-holes. Gretsch guitars have always had inherent style, but for the Streamliner, the sound is just as important. It features three  Broad’Tron  humbucking pickups—some of the most powerful pickups made by Gretsch—that are both high output and high fidelity. Available at Guitar Center, the Streamliner Center Block Cateye is ideal for players who want a classic-looking guitar with sounds that fit into any context.

Gretsch G2627T Streamliner Center Block “Cateye” Main Features

  • Gloss-finished maple body with lightweight spruce center block
  • 24.75"-scale thin U-shape  nato  neck with gloss finish, laurel fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets
  • 3 Gretsch  Broad’Tron  humbucking pickups, dual 3-way switches
  • Bigsby  B70 vibrato tailpiece, Adjusto-matic  bridge,  nickel die-cast locking tuning machines


Designed to Reduce Feedback

The Gretsch G2627T is a semi-hollowbody guitar made of maple. A spruce center block runs the length of the body, reinforcing the top while preventing feedback when rocking at higher stage volumes. Sleek “Cateye” soundholes pay tribute to Gretsch designs of the 1940s.


Fast-Playing Neck and Fretboard

The G2627T Streamliner has a nato neck—sonically similar to mahogany—with a thin U-shape profile. A laurel fretboard gives it a dark and classic appearance that also delivers a smooth, natural feel. It boasts a flat 12"  radius for effortless bending and comfortable chording.


Triple Humbucking Pickups for More Power

Loaded with a trio of  Broad’Tron  humbucking pickups—the most powerful pickups made by Gretsch—this Gretsch Streamliner produces powerful  mids, extended lows and a super clear, smooth high end. The added middle pickup and versatile control layout gives you a world of tonal options to unlock. This powerful trio gives you more output, helping to deliver more in-your-face sound. They also fit in the mix better when laying down guitar tracks.


Classic Hardware

A Bigsby B70 tailpiece allows you to add pitch-bending to your playing. From subtle surf vibrato to raucous rockabilly, the Bigsby can cover lots of sonic turf—all without interfering with the vibrations of the top. Locking tuners make string changing a breeze; the Adjusto-matic bridge is a time-tested solution for precise intonation.

Other features include slick-looking nickel hardware, a black pickguard, arched laminated maple construction and vintage-style black control knobs. The dual three-way pickup switches that engage every pickup combination also add versatility to the retro style of the Gretsch G2627T.
