Guitar Center has lopped $150 off the price of the Gretsch G2657T Streamliner Center Block Jr. Available in a choice of Candy Apple Red and Ocean Turquoise these Bigsby-equipped, double-cutaway thinline semis have been reduced from $549.99 to just $399.99 for this year’s Cyber Monday sale.

With a solid spruce center block these semi-hollowbody electrics are feedback resistant when paired with high-gain devices at volume. Their hot Broad’Tron humbucking pickups are voiced for clarity and definition with a solid low-end response, distinctive highs, and midrange bite.

Constructed with laminated maple the double-cutaway bodies allow easy access to the upper frets while a thinline build makes for a comfortable playing experience. The Gretsch G2657T Streamliner Center Block Jr. also features a 24.75” scale U-profile set maple neck with an ebony fingerboard.

These typically high-end appointments are augmented by quality hardware including a Bigsby B50 vibrato tailpiece, Adjusto-matic bridge, and die-cast locking tuners.

Gretsch G2657T Streamliner: $549.99, Now $399.99
With $150 off the normal price this Gretsch G2657T Streamliner Center Block Jr. is a Cyber Monday bargain at only $399.99. Available in Candy Apple Red and Ocean Turquoise finishes this cool semi-hollowbody design features a Bigsby B50, Adjusto-matic bridge, and dual Broad’Tron humbucking pickups. Echoing the classic Gretsch designs of yesteryear this guitar oozes vintage rock ‘n’ roll appeal.

This model has some pretty impressive features for the normal price of $549.99, but is an absolute bargain at under $400. Like their high-end brethren these quality guitars feature a laminated maple body, maple neck, ebony fingerboard, and Bigsby tailpiece.

With a more contemporary voicing than the Filter’Tron pickups of yore these Broad’Tron ‘buckers deliver a more powerful, richer sound. And with a solid spruce center block feedback is unlikely to be uncontrollable.

While Gretsch’s reputation for colorful finishes goes back to the 1950s, the finishes featured on the model here derive from Fender’s custom color charts of the 1960s. Candy Apple Red Metallic appeared in 1963 when it replaced Shell Pink, while Ocean Turquoise Metallic superseded Sherwood Green Metallic in 1965.
