New for 2017, Gretsch has added a new Black finish to its popular G2622 Streamliner™ Center Block lineup. Revitalizing the best elements from the past, the G2622 Streamliner™ Center Block with V-Stoptail bursts into the modern music era with powerful sound and style. Brash and feedback-resistant, the sleek G2622 is designed for the guitarist who demands more than the mundane from an instrument—more performance, more style and most importantly, more volume.
The secret to the Streamliner’s sound is twofold— the Broad’Tron™ humbucking pickup and the spruce center block. Specifically designed for the Streamliner, the high-output Broad’Tron pickup spawns robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange for a unique tone that blends well with other instruments in a band context. 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.
Other fine features include a 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 rosewood fingerboard with elegant pearloid block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets, white-bound neck with a thin “U”-shaped profile, stylish Gretsch "V" stoptail tailpiece and an Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with an anchored base and synthetic bone nut.
Also boasts classic eye-catching style with vintage-style gold control knobs, F Holes, elegant two-ply white and black body binding, slick-looking nickel hardware, single-ply black pickguard with Gretsch logo and arched laminated maple construction.
