G2622T Streamliner Tone

The G2622T Streamliner can still provide classic Gretsch rockabilly tones, but with the addition of the spruce center block and the new higher output BT-2S humbuckers, this baby can really push some air! It boasts more tonal thickness, tighter bass response, a more aggressive midrange, glassy and airy highs, and a ton of clarity. These pickups may be high output, but they are still plenty dynamic and clear sounding.
