    Can anyone tell me what the lower bout width is on the Streamliner center block Jr? I’m thinking about one and I’d like to determine if a gig bag that I have will be large enough for it.

    thanks in advance.

    13-1/2" I believe, but maybe an owner can give you an exact measurement.

    Sorry about the slow reply. Took a while to get to the guitar.
    My G5655TG is 13.5" across the lower bout. Hope that helps?

    Seeing that you are "thinking about" a Jr. I just thought I'd say that I think the Jr. size is a very comfortable size! I think you'll really enjoy it! :) A 13.5" to 14" lower bout is quite enjoyable to play.

    My 6120 and 6118 juniors are 14". The 5655 is more jet sized IMO at 13.5" or so.

    my 2655, as pictured as my avatar measures just a tick under 13 1/2 inches across the lower bout. not sure that I'd put it into a gig bag though. good luck.
