Big, bold, and righteous, the Gretsch G2420 Streamliner Hollow Body Single-Cut with Chromatic II Tailpiece delivers astounding value. This true hollow body electric guitar is designed for the modern guitarist. Rock-abilly, Jazz, Country, Classic Rock all sound perfectly at home on this guitar. The Gretsch G2420’s modern sonics, updated electronics, and authentically elegant style create the latest iteration of That Great Gretsch Sound!™
The secret to the Streamliner’s sound is a new offering from Gretsch—the Broad’Tron™ BT-2S humbucking pickup. Heavily influenced by the timeless tones of TV Jones pickups, the BT-2S humbuckers were designed specifically for the Streamliner Collection, the high-output Broad’Tron pickup spawns improved definition with a 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 control, a master tone control, master volume control, and three-way pickup switching.
A 12” fingerboard radius and 22 medium jumbo frets on the laurel fingerboard allows for incredible playability. With elegant Pearloid Hump Block inlays and a bound fingerboard, the look of the neck is top-notch. Nato is the wood selected for the neck and it is shaped to a thin “U”-shaped profile. This neck is ideal for chord work or firing off speedy riffs. Enjoy rock-solid tuning stability courtesy of the stylish Gretsch Chromatic II tailpiece, Adjust-O-Matic bridge with secured laurel base, and synthetic bone nut. 24.75" scale length allows the strings to keep that slinky feeling.
All the classic eye-catching style you’ve come to expect from Gretsch is here. The 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 G2420 is an astounding take on the authentic sound and classic style you’ve come to expect from Gretsch.
