Gretsch Unveils New Streamliner G2622, G2655 Guitars
The new models sport FideliSonic P90 pickups, and the choice of a Gretsch V-Stoptail or Bigsby tremolo tailpiece.
First teased a few months back, Gretsch has fully unveiled its new Streamliner G2622 and G2655 models.
Both the full-size G2622 and smaller-bodied G2655 models come in two variations: one with a Gretsch V-Stoptail, and one with a Bigsby tremolo tailpiece.
For starters, there's the G2655, which features a 14” laminated mahogany body with Aged White Purfling binding, enlarged f-holes, a thin-U set nato neck, and a laurel fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets.
Sonically, it features two FideliSonic P90 pickups, controlled by master volume and tone knobs, dedicated pickup volume controls, and a three-way switch.
The G2622, meanwhile, features a laminated mahogany body with Aged White Purfling binding, enlarged f-holes, and a chambered spruce center block that runs the length of the body.
The guitar's thin U-shaped set nato neck features Aged White binding, and a 12”-radius laurel fingerboard boasting 22 medium jumbo frets.
The G2622 features the same pair of FideliSonic P90s as the G2655, controlled by dedicated pickup volume controls, a master tone control, a master volume control, and a three-way selector switch.
The Gretsch G2655T-P90 (with Bigbsy) and G2655-P90 are available now for $599 and $499, with the Gretsch G2622T-P90 (with Bigbsy) and G2622-P90 also ringing up at $599 and $499, respectively.
