A High-gain, Hardtail Gretsch That Won't Break the Bank

The Gretsch G2655 Streamliner Center Block Junior Double Cutaway semi-hollowbody electric guitar was built for players looking for an affordable guitar that blends the identifiable Gretsch sound with high-gain rock tones. Two high-output, custom-wound Broad'Tron humbucking pickups effortlessly push amplifiers into overdrive, while the spruce centerblock in the body resists feedback at loud volumes. The Gretsch G2655 Streamliner Center Block Junior is a wonderful blend of old-school personality and new-school tonality.

Gretsch G2655 Streamliner Center Block Junior Double Cutaway at a Glance:
  • Classic Gretsch appearance
  • Vintage and modern tones
  • Built with the player in mind
Classic Gretsch appearance

The G2655 Streamliner Center Block Junior sticks close to what has made Gretsch guitars look so desirable over the years. A pair of F-holes displays the guitar's semi-hollowbody. And its thinline construction is very comfortable to play for long gigs. The G2655 is also decorated with vintage-looking, 2-ply white and black binding that wraps the entirety of the instrument. And the chrome hardware and pearloid block inlays ensure the G2655 will look as great onstage as it does hanging up in our Sweetwater retail store.

Vintage and modern tones

The G2655 Streamliner Center Block Junior uses vintage-style construction and a modern electronics package to deliver tones that will fit equally well with a rockabilly band as it will through a high-gain amp stack. The semi-hollow design adds warmth and clarity to the guitar's tone. But the high-output, custom-wound Broad'Tron humbucking pickups are engineered to deliver screaming rock tones. Feedback is kept nicely under control via the body's spruce center block.

Built with the player in mind

Gretsch's G2655 Streamliner Center Block Junior 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 thinline, double-cutaway construction is comfortable against your body, and it gives you unimpeded access to the guitar's highest frets. The controls have even been thoughtfully laid out to not interfere with your picking hand technique.

Gretsch G2655 Streamliner Center Block Junior Double Cutaway Features:
  • Semi-hollow guitar with high-output humbuckers
  • 2 powerful Broad'Tron humbuckers
  • Semi-hollow design adds warmth while resisting feedback
  • Thin "U" neck profile is comfortable
  • Vintage-looking ornamentation
The Gretsch G2655 Streamliner Junior blends vintage and modern rock tones with ease.

Beautiful to look at and to play

Amazingly light weight and very light action. Plays great. Sweetwater did their usual excellent setup and it's ready to go right out of the box. Not that it matters, but it looks much more expensive than it actually is. jdk

Great Guitar, Great Service.

There is no better guitar out there for the price range. And Sweetwater treats me very fair and Mark Chapman is always ready to help in any way.....Great People!


I always thought one day I would have my "dream guitar" custom built for me. Well, it has been 50 years since I started strumming and I can see that is not going to happen. Oh, well, you roll with the punches.But then one day I discovered The Streamliner Junior and guess what? Gretsch built my CUSTOM DREAM GUITAR, only they didn't know it but they did. Now if I were building it and paying out good money for a 'dream guitar' I may have asked for a bit fancier grain of wood and maybe some high-name know, some glitz! But that wouldn't really have been necessary. As it is...this would have been my "prototype" for that elusive guitar. And guess what? This is good enough for me. So, I guess I do have my dream guitar or as close as I will ever get.

Great Axe !

When this guitar came out, it got a decent amount of publicity. I was quite impressed with it's appearance, and I was looking for a semi-hollowbody, being I did not own one. I did know of Gretsch as my friend had one that I often used. It is aesthetically pleasing, fairly compact, and well constructed. It is very light and comfortable to play. Sounds terrific, and is extremely versatile, useful for various genres. I would advise anyone looking for a guitar like this, should jump on it. It is a hell of an instrument for the price.

WOW, simply WOW

First of all, about Sweetwater: if you've ordered from them before, you know they have the absolute best customer service in the industry. If you haven't ordered from them before, well, they have the absolute best customer service in the industry.Now, the guitar: even more beautiful than the pictures depict, a stunning translucent red that everyone loves. Fit and finish were top notch; all the binding is clean, the frets are well polished and seated, the fretboard was nicely buffed, the inlays are perfect, and the finish is flawless. Although the frets are listed as being medium jumbo, they're thinner than your typical Fender medium jumbo fret, but about as tall. I find them to be very easy to play on. As to the neck, I like medium-chunky necks, and I was concerned that the "thin U" shape might not be enough to fill my hands, but it's actually a perfect size and shape. Very, very easy to play chords and riffs on, and soloing up high is an absolute pleasure with the deep double cutaway. The body size is a welcome alternative to the 16 inchers, as I was raised on Les Pauls and Teles. On a strap, there is a noticeable neck dive, but on a 6 pound guitar it hasn't bothered me at rehearsals or a gig yet. I really like the V stoptail; it harkens back to the Cadillac V-tailpiece on the original White Falcon.Now for the sound: if you know what a semi-hollowbody Gretsch sounds like, it's like that, but thicker and not quite as bright. There's still plenty of that shimmering Gretsch top end sparkle, but the lows and low mids are more pronounced. Through my Vox, I get a really full clean sound, and a nice, woody breakup tone. Through my Orange, this little Gretsch becomes an absolute flamethrower, pumping out singing solo lines and crunchy rhythms that rival most Les Pauls. I'd say the sound is somewhere in between a traditional Les Paul, a Gretsch Duo Jet, and an ES-335. Fat, with plenty of clarity, even with high gain distortion playing jazz chords. I won't be changing these Broad Tron pickups, which is unusual for me.Bottom line: if you're looking for a versatile semi-hollow that is a little off the beaten path, but still delivers both excellent playability and superb sound, I highly recommend this little gem. It's workmanship, components, and beauty make it easily worth twice it's price, but I'm happy we don't have to pay that much.
