A Value-packed Gretsch Semi-hollowbody

The G2622 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. The Gretsch G2622 Streamliner Center Block Double Cutaway semi-hollowbody electric guitar delivers classic big body sounds at a reasonable price.

Gretsch G2622 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
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 G2622 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 G2622 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 G2622 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.

Gretsch G2622 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
  • Gretsch "V" Stoptail tailpiece provides ample sustain

Affordable and Awesome

This is a killer axe, especially at this price point. A ton of fun and easy to play. It seems that Gretsch was going for something that would appeal to more "high-gain" players without taking away from their reputation for guitars that have nice clean and low-gain tones. If that's the case I think they nailed it. Is it perfect? I suppose not. There's not really so many different tones available as you turn the knobs, but honestly I usually play with the tones knobs of my guitars all the way up anyways. You should keep in mind that this is a guitar that is less $ so of course they must have cut cost somewhere. TL;DR This guitar is better than you may expect based on the price

Gretsch G2622

I decided, before I bought a guitar this time, it would involve more than just how they look and how they are made. I studied demand on resale, reputation, and checked out how they sound in person. For me, a needed criteria is how they sound without an amplifier. My preference is not a flat guitar, I like it to have it's own sound, and then plug it in. with that, I was concerned about the Gretsch semi hollow body vs the Epiphone Casino hollow body. I have been pleasantly surprised, this Gretsch has it's own individual sound, carries a note beautifully. The sound compares to the new Fender Coronado at a much cheaper price and better looking.

Great for a first electric guitar!

I have played acoustic guitar (Martin D-18) for about 45 years, but I had to finally admit that I've got a rock and roll heart. I was surprised and amazed to find this Gretsch G2622! I was prepared to pay $1000 +, because I believe that quality informs ability, but when I found this one, it was an easy call. I knew that as I moved into electric this one would help me on my journey. I have since bought two Fender Strats, one new and one MIM 2009, and they are fine guitars, but the Gretsch, which I named "Alice" (you gotta name your guitars, right?), is my fave, even at that. I can't add anything to the praise from the other reviews. This is simply a wonderful musical instrument, and one that I wiill pass on to one lucky grandchild.

Plays Like a $3000 Guitar.

Um, wow. Played this at my local music store and was blown away. I for some reason am usually uninspired with the Gretsch guitars that I've played in the past. This one was different. The neck is thin and extremely fast. It's lightweight yet still feels high quality. The pickups sound AMAZING. Pristine, in fact. I played it through a Blackstar head/cabinet stack and couldn't stop playing it, switching thru different settings on the amp and messing with the volume/tone controls on the guitar. No joke- it was MORE inspiring to play than a Gibson ES-335 I'd recently tried. If you haven't tried this guitar, you need to... NOW. For this price? It's ridiculous. Call Ben Porter at Sweetwater. He's the best.
