From Gretsch –

“The exhilarating G2655 Streamline Centre Block Jr. Double-Cut with V-Stoptail 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 BT-2S humbucking pickup and the spruce centre block. Designed specifically for the Streamliner Collection, the high-output Broad’Tron pickup spawns improved definition with tighter bass response for robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange.

A lightweight spruce centre block runs the length of the body, reinforcing the top while eliminating undesirable 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.

A fast-playing 12”-radius laurel fingerboard with elegant pearloid Big Block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets sits atop the white-bound nato neck with a thin “U”-shaped profile—ideal for chord work or fiery riffing. Enjoy rock-solid tuning stability courtesy of the stylish Gretsch V-Stoptail tailpiece, anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and synthetic bone nut. 

All the classic eye-catching style you’ve come to expect from Gretsch is here—vintage-style black control knobs, enlarged F-holes for acoustic projection, elegant aged white binding with upgraded purfling, slick-looking nickel hardware, three-ply tortoise pickguard and arched laminated maple construction. Easy to play while rocking out thanks to its smaller body, the G2655 is a phenomenal instrument for the modern musician who wants to control the stage and the audience while standing out from the pack.”

This Gretsch Streamliner G2655 is finished in the relatively new but most alluring Gretsch colour of Gunmetal. It was bought new last year and shows no sign of player wear at all.

It does everything it’s supposed to do in a most satisfying way – well built with quality components, slinky feeling neck with fab Bigsby tremolo bridge, very light at 6.1 lbs, easy to play, great sounding pickups …. quite the package for the money.

Nothing wrong with this one, just surplus to requirements. It would definitely suit a new buyer at a discount to regular new price.

Comes in a quality gig bag in good condition.
