The G2622TG Streamliner puts a genuine Gretsch semi-hollowbody electric guitar in your hands for a great value. It delivers an incredibly snappy, open tone thanks to its 5-ply arched maple body, with P90 soapbars in both bridge and neck position to offer a wide palette of classic and modern tones. A weight-relieved spruce center block imbues the Streamliner with true hollowbody tone while also keeping feedback under control — even in high-gain situations. Topped off with a Bigsby tailpiece for gentle vibrato effects, the Gretsch G2622TG Streamliner delivers classic big-body sounds at a reasonable price.
Maple has to be one of the most lively, bright, and colorful tonewoods out there, which is exactly why Gretsch decided to make their G2622TG Streamliner 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 forward character of its P90 pickups, cuts through a dense mix and sounds great in any situation.
You get a lot of tonal bang for your buck with the Gretsch G2622TG Streamliner, 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 Music Experience, 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 Streamliner’s note definition, clarity, and sustain are amazing.
It’s easy to stereotype the Gretsch G2622TG Streamliner until you play it, and then you realize you can pull off a lot of tonal tricks you may have figured weren’t within its grasp. 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.
Nothing beats the character and vintage vibe that a real Bigsby-style tailpiece adds to the Gretsch G2622TG Streamliner. Based on the original design created by Paul A. Bigsby, this Bigsby Licensed tailpiece is effortless to use, making it particularly easy to pull off slow, subtle, and extended bends.
Available in a stunning Candy Apple Red satin finish, the impressively affordable G2622TG-P90 Streamliner™ Center Block P90 with Bigsby® and Gold Hardware is designed for three simple things — high gain-friendly performance, slick, easy playability and spectacular style. The G2622TG-P90’s sound is the perfect blend of brash and brawn with a chambered spruce center block driven to the limit by dual P90 pickups. The single-coil P90 Soap Bar pickups offer up a more transparent tone than a traditional humbucker, while retaining a thick midrange for a unique, muscular voice. The lightweight spruce center block runs the length of the body, reinforcing the top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance on modern stages. Add some shimmer and expression to your playing with the gold Bigsby®-licensed B70 vibrato tailpiece. Easy to play while rocking out, the G2622TG-P90 is a phenomenal instrument for the modern musician who wants to control the stage and the audience while standing out from the pack.
