Gretsch G2622T Streamliner Centre-Block Double Cutaway with Bigsby, Riviera Blue
Gretsch G2622T Streamliner Centre-Block Double Cutaway with Bigsby, Riviera Blue Overview.
Revitalizing the best elements from the past, the G2622T StreamlinerTM Center Block Double -Cut with Bigsby® bursts into the modern music era with powerful sound and style. Brash and feedback-resistant, the sleek G2622T is designed for the guitarist who demands more than the mundane from an instrument—more performance, more style and most importantly, more volume—while retaining all you expect from a Gretsch.
The secret to the Streamliner’s sound is twofold—the Broad’TronTM BT-2S humbucking pickup and the spruce center block. Designed specifically for the Streamliner Collection, the high-output Broad’Tron BT-2S pickup spawns improved definition with tighter bass response for robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange. A lightweight spruce center block runs the length of the body, reinforcing the top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance on rocking stages. The Streamliner’s 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 Big 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 fiery riffing. Add some shimmer and expression to your playing with the Bigsby-licensed B70 vibrato tailpiece, while the anchored Adjusto-MaticTM bridge and synthetic bone nut grant astounding tuning stability and accurate, slip-free intonation.
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, three-ply black pickguard and arched laminated maple construction. Nearly impossible to put down once you pick it up and start playing, the G2622T Streamliner has the updated sound and classic style that has earned Gretsch accolades since the dawn of rock ‘n’ roll.

Looks and sounds great, a few minor finishing issues but at this price I can't really complain.
Amazing, ,......now. It looks good, feels good and plays well. Apart from one slight hitch. When I plugged it in, hardly any volume, no response from volume and tone controls and I wondered if there was a wiring issue. Googled the problem and numerous people talked about this on forums but they decided to live with it because everything else was good. On closer inspection I saw the edge of the clear protective strip over the pick-ups. Removed these and a brilliant sounding Gretsch with all the controls working as they should do. Gretsch or the selling dealers should point this out, as this is my sixth new guitar but the first one with protection over the pups. I still give it five stars as so far a brilliant guitar.
Looks beautiful, sounds beautiful.
