The secret to the Streamliner's sound is a new offering from Gretsch - the Broad'Tron humbucking pickup. Specifically designed for the Streamliner, this high-output pickup spawns robust lows, pristine highs and a throaty midrange for a unique tone that blends well with other instruments in a band context.
Other fine features include a traditional control layout - neck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup switching, fast-playing 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard with elegant pearloid block inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets, white-bound nato neck with a thin "U"-shaped profile, Bigsby®- licensed B60 vibrato tailpiece and Adjusto-Matic bridge with secured rosewood base and synthetic bone nut.
This model boasts classic eye-catching style with vintage-style gold control knobs, F Holes, elegant two-ply white and black body binding, slick-looking nickel hardware, arched laminated maple construction and single-ply black pickguard with Gretsch logo.
