Semi-hollow bodies - an ideal middle ground. Have you always loved the traditional look and full sound of hollow body guitars? Have you been put off by the way they feed back at higher gain settings, even at low volume? Featuring an internal solid wooden block in the centre of the body, a semi-hollow guitar like the G2622 Streamliner could be what you've been searching for.
The internal spruce block gives the pickups a sturdier mounting point, significantly reducing the sympathetic vibrations that can cause uncontrollable and undesirable feedback in fully hollow models. It also simply takes up space within the guitar, leaving less air to transmit vibrations around inside the body. The result is a pleasing compromise - a broader, more natural guitar sound that's still usable with the gain and volume cranked.
The best of both worlds. Not quite a humbucker, not quite a single coil - P90 pickups have been fitted to some of the most iconic guitars in history. From the New York Dolls' Johnny Thunders and The Clash's Mick Jones, to guitar heroes like Pete Townshend and Carlos Santana, P90s have been the weapon of choice for players seeking a lower output pickup that still kicks out a full mid-range.
Gretsch's new FideliSonic 90 pickups take that mid-gain jangle to new heights, pushing the core of each note right to the fore, and ensuring top-notch clarity along with a pleasing mid drive. With these pickups at its disposal, this updated Gretsch Streamliner has every base covered.
