Big, bold and righteous, the G2420 Streamliner Hollow Body Single-Cut is designed for the modern guitarist who yearns for something beyond the norm. A commanding guitar for powerful players, the G2420's modern sonics, updated electronics and authentically elegant style create the latest iteration of That Great Gretsch Sound!

The secret to the Streamliner's sound is the Broad'Tron BT-2S humbucking pickup. 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. This 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 Hump 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 firing off speedy riffs. Enjoy rock-solid tuning stability courtesy of the stylish Gretsch Chromatic II tailpiece, Adjusto-Matic bridge with secured laurel base 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 increased acoustic projection, elegant aged white binding with upgraded purfling, slick-looking nickel hardware, arched laminated maple construction and three-ply tortoise pickguard. Nearly impossible read more to put down once you pick it up and start playing, the G2420 is an astounding take on the authentic sound and classic style you've come to expect from Gretsch.

"HOLY UNDERWEAR BATMAN!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Bought this as a travel guitar, didn't want to subject my Eastman or Taylor solid wood guitars to the elements in the back of a silverado. I had originally ordered an Ibanez AG75 -- I like ibanez and have both an artstar and a talman bass, but the AG75 was nothing. Tried the Streamliner and I am blown away. Workmanship is amazing for the price. The pickups are really good -- they can generate jazz, blues and rockabilly twang for sure. I can't believe what a bargain this instrument is! Highly recommend this one. zZounds' exchange policy paid off for me in a big way. Great outfit.
