A High-gain Hollowbody Gretsch That Won’t Break the Bank
The Gretsch G2420 Streamliner Hollowbody electric guitar was built for players looking for an affordable archtop guitar that is as comfortable offering the identifiable Gretsch sound as it is higher-gain rock tones. The floating bridge and fully hollow construction are great for sultry jazz tones. And the two custom-wound Broad’Tron humbucking pickups offer a powerful voice with balanced lows, mids, and highs. The Gretsch G2420 Streamliner is a wonderful blend of old-school personality and new-school tonality at an amazing value.
Classic Gretsch appointments
The G2420 Streamliner sticks close to what has made Gretsch guitars look so desirable over the years. A pair of F-holes emphasize the guitar’s voluptuous curves. The G2420 is also decorated with vintage-looking, 2-ply white and black binding that wraps the entirety of the instrument. And the nickel hardware, branded tailpiece, and pearloid block inlays ensure the G2420 will look as great onstage as it does hanging up in our Sweetwater retail store.
Vintage and modern tones
The G2420 Streamliner uses vintage-style construction and a modern electronics package to deliver tones that will fit equally well with a jazz trio as it will with a hard-rocking rockabilly band. The fully hollow design adds warmth and roundness to the guitar’s tone. But the custom-wound Broad’Tron humbucking pickups are engineered to deliver plenty of output that can easily put you into hard rock tonal territory.
Built with the player in mind
Gretsch’s G2420 Streamliner Hollowbody plays and feels every bit as good as it sounds. Its thin “U” neck profile is round enough that chording remains comfortable in all positions, while being thin enough to facilitate fleet-fingered runs. The full-size, single-cutaway construction is comfortable against your body, and it gives you access to the guitar’s higher frets. The controls have even been thoughtfully laid out to pull a wide range of tones from the guitar.
