Earlier this month, Gretsch guitars launched new finishes to its Streamliner Collection. Available now, the G2622T Streamliner Center Block Double-Cut with Bigsby is now in Brownstone Maple and Stirling Green and the G2655 Streamliner Center Block Jr. Double-Cut with V-Stoptail is available in Midnight Sapphire and Forge Glow Maple.

The secret to the Streamliner’s sound is twofold—the Broad’Tron BT-2S humbucking pickup and the mahogany center block. Designed specifically for the Streamliner Collection, the high-output Broad’Tron pickup delivers improved definition with tighter bass response. A lightweight mahogany center block runs the length of the body, reinforcing the top while eliminating undesirable feedback for volume- friendly performance on modern stages.
