Yes, I have a new toy - although not just yet. Ordered it from Dawson’s Music on the web at around 10am this morning. Can’t wait for it to arrive! The Gretsch G2622 Semi-Hollow Streamliner Left Handed Electric Guitar complete with a Gretsch “V” Stop Tailpiece is a double cutaway design guitar that not only impresses drastically in the sound department, but will look simply stunning as part of any guitar rig. A clean, vintage design that’s loaded with character, the G2622 is built to impress with modest flair.
The body of the Gretsch G2622 Streamliner comprises of laminated maple top, back and sides that work with a spruce centre block to deliver a clear yet complex fundamental tone that can lend itself to a huge variety of styles of music. The body also has white binding with black purfling that really brings the vintage look home.
The G2622 features a neck crafted from nato complete with a bound rosewood fingerboard that plays home to 22 medium-jumbo frets and large pearloid block inlays. Not only does this look amazing but the level of comfort means you can play this guitar for hours with minimal fatigue. Atop the neck is a 50s style headstock complete with vintage Gretsch logo and die-cast tuning machines.
To harness all of that character developed by the body, the Gretsch G2622 Streamliner comes loaded with Gretsch Broad’Tron Humbuckers, positioned in the neck and one in the bridge ares. To effectively shape your desired sound, the G2622 gives you volume controls for each pickup alongside a master tone and master volume control. A 3-way toggle switch then gives you the ability to switch between pickups on the fly.
The G2622 Streamliner hollowbody guitar is certainly not lacking in hardware either. That stunning Bigsby B60 bridge works effortlessly alongside the rosewood-block-secured Adjust-o-matic bridge to give you sustain and intonation that will impress even the most discerning of guitarists.
The Gretsch G2622 Streamliner Electric Guitar is a truly great all-rounder that leaves you wanting for nothing. If you’re in the market for a double-cutaway, semi-hollow guitar, I have been told the G2622 will not let me down.
