NAMM 2016: Gretsch Lift The Lid on The Streamliner Center Block Guitars

Gretsch G2655T Streamliner Block Jnr
Gretsch G2655T Streamliner Block Jnr
The Streamliner Center Block series is the newest guitar line from Gretsch, which features the G2622 with V-Stoptail, the G2655T Center Block Jr. with Bigsby in black and the G2622T with Bigsby in a flagstaff sunset finish.

Each model in the new Streamliner range takes on numerous hallmarks from 1950s-era guitars from the hollowbody to the f-holes and the headstock style.

The Center Block Jr. with Bigsby, black is slightly smaller than its other siblings in the range but this is ideal for those who like the feel and size of a solid-bodied guitar but has all the resonance of a hollow-bodied guitar to deliver tones from jazz right through to good old rock 'n' roll.

The Broad'Tron humbuckers help achieve this versatile with plenty of character for good measure.

Gretsch has also catered for left-handed guitarists with the G2622LH.
