A High-gain Hollowbody with a Bigsby

The Gretsch G2420T Streamliner Hollowbody electric guitar was built for players looking for an affordable archtop guitar that is as comfortable offering the identifiable Gretsch sound as it is higher-gain rock tones. The floating bridge and fully hollow construction are great for smoky jazz tones. Two custom-wound Broad'Tron humbucking pickups offer a powerful voice with balanced lows, mids, and highs. And a Bigsby licensed B-50 vibrato gives the G2420T subtle pitch control. The Gretsch G2420T Streamliner is a wonderful blend of old-school personality and new-school tonality at an amazing value.

  • Vintage and modern tones
  • Built with the player in mind
Classic Gretsch appointments

The G2420T Streamliner sticks close to what has made Gretsch guitars look so desirable over the years. A pair of F-holes display the guitar's voluptuous hollowbody. The G2420T is also decorated with vintage-looking, 2-ply white and black binding that wraps the entirety of the instrument. And the nickel hardware, branded tailpiece, and pearloid block inlays ensure the G2420T will look as great onstage as it does hanging up in our Sweetwater retail store.

Vintage and modern tones

The G2420T Streamliner uses vintage-style construction and a modern electronics package to deliver tones that will fit equally well with a jazz trio as it will with a hard-rocking rockabilly band. The fully hollow design adds warmth and roundness to the guitar's tone. And a Bigsby licensed B-50 vibrato allows for Duane Eddy-style pitch bends. But the custom-wound Broad'Tron humbucking pickups are engineered to deliver plenty of output that can easily put you into hard rock tonal territory.

Built with the player in mind

Gretsch's G2420T Streamliner Hollowbody plays and feels every bit as good as it sounds. Its thin "U" neck profile is round enough that chording remains comfortable in all positions, while being thin enough to facilitate fleet-fingered runs. The full-size, single-cutaway construction is comfortable against your body, and it gives you access to the guitar's higher frets. The controls have even been thoughtfully laid out to pull a wide range of tones from the guitar.

Gretsch G2420T Streamliner Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Hollowbody electric guitar with high-output humbuckers
  • 2 powerful Broad'Tron humbuckers
  • Bigsby vibrato allows for subtle pitch control
  • Hollow design adds warmth and a woody tone
  • Thin "U" neck profile is comfortable
  • Vintage-looking ornamentation
The Gretsch G2420T Streamliner Hollowbody can blend jazz and rock tones with ease.

Beyond amazing

The new Gretsch Streamliner 2420t is an absolute gem. A really premium hollow body electricAt a price that is kind of hard to believe. I've been recording with the guitar for a few monthsNow, and just did my first show with it. It played and sounded amazing the entire show. The Sound of the new broadtron pickups is a special thing. I hate to break it to all the filtertron andDynasonic pickup fascists out there, but these pickups really deliver. I mean REALLY DELIVER.They are the best stock pickups I've ever seen on an affordable electric guitar. And I've been Playing for 35 years, own 23 guitars, including two vintage Gretsch, and five modern GretschGuitars. The Broadtron's remind me a bit of vintage Seymore Duncan's combined with a Filtertron.Clear and powerful, with super articulate notes both in the high register, as well the low notes. RockSolid fatness with plenty of jangle for chordwork. Really well balanced across the spectrum. PerfectFor rock and roll. The harder you hit these pickups, the more they repond. You cant make them soundBad. They sound really good. The great Gretsch sound oozes out of every pore of this guitar. The buildQuality is again, top notch, and light years better than many guitars at twice the price. The most Monsterous brutal pig of a hollowbody guitar you could ever hope for. I love it.

The G2420T is a Winner

The G2420T is an amazing guitar. And in this price range, I don't think there is a better offering for a Hollowbody/ Semi Hollow Body. The neck is really nice. Finish of the guitar is amazing. Frets were smooth, with no buzzing in any position. The Gold Dust finish is beautiful.Pickups are hotter than the HiLoTrons found on the G5600 series Gretsch guitars. It does lose a little bit of the Gretsch Jangle. But just a tiny but compared to the higher end Gretsch guitars. One could always change the pickups out with TV Jones or HiLoTrons etc.
Music background: Pro, playing out at least 2 times a week for about 20 years


This guitar plays nice and sounds good . It took a while before it would stay in tune it kept going flat. After the strings were used a while it will stay in tune. Good buy, had to order a case for it.

Gretsch winner

Bought this guitar as a replacement for my LE Epiphone 355 Pelham Blue. The first thing I noticed was that unlike the Epi, the intonation was ok straight from the box and apart from a little tweaking with the string action it played very well. The fretting and the feel of the neck was excellent. The pickups give a good sound with a good range of tones. The only issue was a 4" long 'dent' below the surface of the paint on the curve of the bass side which was noticeable when light reflected from it. Apart from that it's a great instrument and is better than other similarly priced guitars.

Gretsch 2420t Gold Dust

This is a great guitar, the gold finish is beautiful.The neck is extremely comfortable and the sound is great with a good output and a little more jangle than regular humbuckers would have and works well with thicker stings for a nice jazz tone. It can also get that cool rockabilly twang with lighter strings as I have tried both, just depends on what your going to use it for..All in all the pickups are a very nice compliment to hollow body guitar.The only negative which is very minor and can easily be corrected at least on my guitar i got here from Sweetwater is that the frets when bending strings I could hear and feel some friction which would mean that the frets weren't completely polished (hence the 4.5 rating) So I bought a fret polishing kit (10.00 bucks) and with the strings off polished them up nicely taking about 20 minutes to do all frets.This may have only been my guitar with this issue also.Action and intonation was good from the beginning but after changing strings I tweaked these to my liking anyway.All in all a great guitar at a great price even comparing it to my 1969 335 and my US Masters guitar.
