Big, bold and righteous, the G2420T Streamliner(TM) Hollow Body Single-Cut with Bigsby® is designed for the modern guitarist who yearns for something beyond the norm. A commanding guitar for powerful players, the G2420T's modern sonics, updated electronics and authentically elegant style create the latest iteration of That Great Gretsch Sound!(TM)

The secret to the Streamliner's sound is a new offering from Gretsch - the Broad'Tron(TM) BT-2S humbucking pickup. Designed specifically for the Streamliner Collection, the high-output Broad'Tron pickup spawns improved definition with tighter bass response for robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange. This sonic power is harnessed and shaped by the 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 laurel fingerboard with elegant pearloid Hump Block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets sits atop the white-bound nato neck with a thin "U"-shaped profile - ideal for chord work or firing off hot-rodded riffing. Add some shimmer and expression to your playing with the Bigsby-licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece, while the Adjusto-Matic(TM) bridge with secured laurel base and synthetic bone nut grant amazing tuning stability.

All the classic eye-catching style you've come to expect from Gretsch is here - vintage-style black control knobs, enlarged F-holes for increased acoustic projection, elegant aged white binding with upgraded purfling, slick-looking nickel hardware, arched laminated maple construction and three-ply tortoise pickguard. Nearly impossible to put down once you pick it up and start playing, the G2420T is an astounding take on the classic sound and style you've come to expect from Gretsch.

Its a great guitar, finish is nice, feels well made, Sounds great. You wont be dissapointed. You will most likely want to upgrade to locking keys and a roller bridge. If a fly lands on the trem arm it comes out of tune. At this price point thats not so bad at all. Also the all black knobs look and feel cheep. Aparently it put production cost over the top to paint the numbers. So its an upgrade you may want to make.
