The Gretsch G2420 Streamliner Hollowbody electric guitar was built for players looking for an affordable archtop guitar that is as comfortable offering the identifiable Gretsch sound as it is higher-gain rock tones. The floating bridge and fully hollow construction are great for sultry jazz tones. And the two custom-wound Broad'Tron humbucking pickups offer a powerful voice with balanced lows, mids, and highs. The Gretsch G2420 Streamliner is a wonderful blend of old-school personality and new-school tonality at an amazing value.
The G2420 Streamliner sticks close to what has made Gretsch guitars look so desirable over the years. A pair of F-holes emphasize the guitar's voluptuous curves. The G2420 is also decorated with vintage-looking, 2-ply white and black binding that wraps the entirety of the instrument. And the nickel hardware, branded tailpiece, and pearloid block inlays ensure the G2420 will look as great onstage as it does hanging up in our Music Experience retail store.
The G2420 Streamliner uses vintage-style construction and a modern electronics package to deliver tones that will fit equally well with a jazz trio as it will with a hard-rocking rockabilly band. The fully hollow design adds warmth and roundness to the guitar's tone. But the custom-wound Broad'Tron humbucking pickups are engineered to deliver plenty of output that can easily put you into hard rock tonal territory.
Gretsch's G2420 Streamliner Hollowbody 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 full-size, single-cutaway construction is comfortable against your body, and it gives you access to the guitar's higher frets. The controls have even been thoughtfully laid out to pull a wide range of tones from the guitar.
Big, bold and righteous, the G2420 Streamliner™ Hollow Body Single-Cut with Chromatic II 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 a new offering from Gretsch—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 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.
