A Value-packed Gretsch Semi-hollowbody w/Bigsby

The G2622T Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway puts a genuine Gretsch semi-hollowbody electric guitar in your hands for less. This guitar doesn't skimp on quality, however. It delivers an incredibly snappy, open tone, thanks to its 5-ply arched maple body. Broad'Tron pickups balance out the Streamliner's tone beautifully. A weight-relieved spruce center block imbues the Streamliner with true hollowbody tone, while also keeping feedback under control - even in high-gain situations. Topped off with a Bigsby tailpiece for gentle vibrato effects, the Gretsch G2622T Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway semi-hollowbody electric guitar delivers classic big body sounds at a reasonable price.

Gretsch G2622T Streamliner Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • 5-ply maple body provides your tone with excellent definition
  • Long spruce center block delivers feedback-free hollowbody tone
  • Three volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility
  • Bigsby tailpiece yields smooth vibrato action
5-ply maple body provides your tone with excellent definition

Maple has to be one of the most lively, bright, and colorful tonewoods out there, which is exactly why Gretsch decided to make their G2622T Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway almost entirely out of this wonderful wood. This semi-hollowbody's 5-ply arched laminated body yields a wonderfully snappy, open tone that, when combined with the balanced character of its Broad'Tron pickups, cuts through a dense mix and sounds great in any situation.

Long spruce center block delivers feedback-free hollowbody tone

You get a lot of tonal bang for your buck with the Gretsch G2622T Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway, thanks to its long spruce center block. Running the full length of the body, the center block allows the otherwise hollow body to resist resonant-frequency feedback. At Sweetwater, we've found that this weight-relieved center block lets us rock out louder, with more gain, without our amplifier squealing out of control. Spruce is a snappy tonewood too, and since the center block connects with the bridge, the note definition, clarity, and sustain on the Streamliner are amazing.

Three volume controls + one tone control = exceptional sonic flexibility

It's easy to stereotype the Gretsch G2622T Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway until you play it, and then you realize you can pull off a lot of tonal tricks with it. With a volume control for each pickup, you can create your perfect balance between warmth, bite, and brilliance when both pickups are engaged. The master tone control lets you fine-tune your sound once you've got the pickups dialed in. And thanks to the master volume control, you can take your tube amp from clean to growling without changing the balance between your pickups. Of course, you'll get sweet tone from the neck and bridge pickups individually, but there's a lot of territory to cover when you combine them.

Bigsby tailpiece yields smooth vibrato action

Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby-style tailpiece adds to the Gretsch G2622T Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, this Bigsby Licensed tailpiece requires next to no effort to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends.

Gretsch G2622T Streamliner Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Semi-hollowbody electric guitar with classic Gretsch styling
  • 5-ply maple body delivers an incredibly snappy, open tone
  • Broad'Tron pickups balance out your tone beautifully
  • Weight-relieved spruce center block yields feedback-free hollowbody tone
  • Highly playable Thin U-shaped nato neck with rosewood fingerboard
  • 3 volume controls and 1 tone control create exceptional sonic flexibility
  • Bigsby tailpiece provides smooth vibrato action

Unbelievable Tone, way underpricced

I have a large guitar and amp collection, From vintage to custom shop even a George Harrison Gretsch Duo Jet USA Custom shop, so I have alot to compare this guitar to. For this type guitar I have a 2003 Stramliner (signed by Fred Gretsch, a D' Anglico Excel and a John Lennon USA made Casino. The bottom line is this a nd the John Lennon are a tie" Even though the Casino cost $3,500 and the Streamliner even now is $550. Bottom line is the Stramliner has great tone at a price about half what it should cost, not that I am complaining

Unbelievable

I own some of the finest Epiphones, Martin's, Ibanez, Schecter axes ... Simply cannot put it down once I pick it up!! The one thing I had to work out was the bridge allowing for weird E string buzz - right out box.

Awesome service, great value

I received the guitar yesterday, it is in flawless condition. Bigsby works great no string snags everything seems to be in great working order fit, finish, set up. Service is always amazing here at Sweetwater very pleased. I always have the pleasure of speaking with Richard Whittington who is very attentive and does great business.
5/5

It's the real deal!

This guitar is the real deal........sounds as good as the larger Gretschs and has a great feel with the smaller body. The neck plays fast and effortlessly. As a guy with smaller hands I find this as easy to play as my Jacksons. Everyone that hears it is blown away by the tone. Great guitar for blues and rockabilly......fantastic value.
4/5

Very nice guitar. Quality manafactured.

Purchased this guitar because I need a unit with the Gretsch sound. My preference is toward single coil pickups. I'm quite surprised how clean, and clear these pickups are. It's not a clear as a Stratocaster sounds, but it's not muddy like Gibson's are. Very good compromise between humbucker, and single coil. Running .046 to .010 with a wound "G". It works fine with this gauge, but the neck is backed out to it's end. It's really designed for a heaver gauge. I'm going to try it out with .012 to .052, and a set of .013 to .056. The .012-.056 is closer to the gauge the guitar was originally built with. I'm used of heavy strings. I started playing guitar with .056 to .015. At the time that was all what everyone was playing. :) :)

Sweetwater Advice

Gretsch G2622T Streamliner

Outfitted in a beautiful Torino Green finish, the G2622T has everything one would expect in a classic Gretsch. The Bigsby-licensed B70 vibrato tailpiece had plenty of wobble - especially as I strummed through some "James Bond" chords - and the 12" radius neck was smooth and fast....
