At the other end of the price scale from yesterday’s Rich Robinson signature model is Gretsch’s new G2215-P90 Streamliner JR Jet Club model. Designed as a workhorse guitar, this model features a BroadTron humbucking pickup and a Gretsch P90 – a great pickup combination, I think.
Gretsch G2215-P90 Streamliner JR Jet Club
So apart from a BroadTron humbucker and P90, what else does this guitar have on offer? The guitar’s bound Nato body has a typical Gretsch shape and the guitar has gold vintage Electro-style control knobs, a nice pickguard and nickel hardware throughout.
The mahogany bolt-on neck has a 12″ laurel fingerboard loaded with 22 medium jumbo fret and those elegant pearloid Neo-Classic inlays. It’s a great look. That extends to the colour choices: Mint Metallic, Sahara Metallic and Single Barrel Stain.
There’s an anchored compensated wrap-around bridge partnered with a synthetic bone nut, so tuning should be good.
This stripped back, wallet-friendly new Gretsch model is already appearing on dealer sites worldwide. I can see this being very popular at this price point. The three colour choices are excellent, in my opinion. They look a lot more expensive than they actually are.
At this price point, this new Gretsch G2215-P90 Streamliner JR Jet model will sell like proverbial hot cakes. The pickup choice is pretty much perfect for a guitar like this, with a BroadTron in the bridge position accompanied by a Gretsch P90 in the neck, covering lots of bases.
