Did some trading this week and picked up a new Gretsch Streamliner. I've been wanting a hollow or semihollow guitar for a while, and something about this one spoke to me. Excellent playability, very good fit and finish, sounds great unplugged. If you're looking for stereotypical Gretsch chime and twang, look somewhere else. The Broad'Tron pickups in this line are designed to sit between Filtertrons and PAFs, so they're a bit darker than your typical Gretsch. It has more of a jazz box sound, with a little twang on top. Which was actually the sound I was looking for. Verdict: I'm happy.
